Prone Paddleboarding

Long before stand-up paddleboarding became popular, prone paddleboarding was the rage. The world-famous Waikiki Beach Boys trained to surf and lifeguard by kneeling and paddling on longboards. Throughout the 1920s, crowds lined up along the Ala Wai Canal on O‘ahu to watch paddleboard races. Don’t just watch: do it.
