Stand Up Paddleboarding at Waikiki

Another perfect day in Paradise with blue skies, temperature in the high 20's, warm water temperature and beautiful sunset.

I rented a stand up paddle board on Waikiki Beach for $25USD or hour and $10 hour after that. It was my first time not in calm water . It was so easy to get out as there is calm areas where waves don't break. The waves were not big but still a challenge to get on!! It took me at least 45 mins to catch my first wave and I caught couple more after that. Lots of people were out and i was in the area in front of Ala Moana Surfriders Hotel. I ended up staying out for 2 hours and absolutely exhausted and wrecked from standing up for 2 hours, paddling to get on wave, get knocked off soooooo many times and then clambering back on. I absolutely LOVED it!!! They didn't charge me for the extra hour which was very kind as the exchange rate is horrible and $25 USD cost me $36 AUD.

Did my usual shopping at Ross which I love and also visited Sephora make up shop and had a make over and bought some new make up.

And of course the day finished with watching another beautiful sunset![
