A stand up paddler and his ride-along cruise quietly across calm waters off Maui, cutting through a golden sunset ringed by heavy clouds. Hawaii sunsets are spectacular when appreciated from just about anywhere, but we must say that viewing one from ocean level with your feet wet is even better.
From the Photographer:
“Looks like he captured a Mermaid! Airport Beach, West Maui.”
Stand up paddling has grown enormously in recent years and is now recognized as the fastest growing water sport in the world. Stand up paddleboards can now be regularly seen from Hawaii to mainland coasts, to the lakes and rivers of the interior.
Views like this make it easy to want to try it out. And where better than in the warm Pacific waters of Hawaii?
In addition to giving Hawaii plenty of sunshine and consistent temperatures, its latitude also gives it shorter sunsets than many places around the world. read more
