Highly, recommended. I’ve taken a basic paddle technique lesson with Robert and a downwind coaching session. No matter how many videos you watch you will never come close to the understanding and improvement you’ll get from a session with Robert. Every gentle suggestion resulted in immediate improvement.
My 6 and 9 year old had fun during their lesson with Robert and now have the confidence and skills to get out and go wherever they want.

AWESOME experience with Robert this morning with our SUP lesson! I was able to stand up and even beat my husband when we raced! This will definitely be something I do whenever I come home to visit!

This was the highlight of my trip home this year. I always wanted to try SUP but never had the time. This time I made the time to do it. Robert was so patient and thorough with his instruction I felt safe and comfortable with him when we got in the water. It was not only fun and a good work out but so therapeutic. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to do it again! Thank you Robert and the Blue Planet Surf Shop staff! :)

The lesson was really helpful and while it was focused on catching waves, Robert also pointed out ways to make my paddle stroke more efficient which will also help in the surf. He is passionate about SUP and loves teaching, what more can you hope for from an instructor.

Robert is an excellent instructor because he breaks down the paddling technique to an easy and manageable process. Taking SUP lessons is worth the time/cost because learning the right techniques will make your paddling effective and avoid injuries.

Took a first-time SUP lesson with 3 of us at Ala Moana lagoon. Robert is quiet and patient, the ideal personality for a first-timer! He carefully explained everything and made sure our equipment fit us. As a fellow windsurfer, he was able to related SUP to something we all understood! I highly recommend Robert to help you both learn and enjoy!

Robert and his Blue Plant Surf team made all my SUP surf dreams come true:
long surf rides with perfect material at different spots.
improvements in paddling and surfing, topped with a downwinder and professional DVD's
Blue Planet Surf shop offers an impressive variety of SUP boards. With good advice and their support in testing various shapes, I found my favorite rental SUP-board and paddle.
Robert's lessons are awesome. With his professional coaching and guiding I improved my paddling and surfing, got to know different surfspots and had my first downwinder in the open sea, a great challenge and experience for me.
Robert made videos during the lessons â?? great help for my improvement â?? and created professional DVD's.
Back home, this DVD's are a warm up in cold European winter days and a reminder of a wonderful time and experience.
Thanks to you Robert and your team

The SUP lesson was a good impression of this kind of surfing. My son and me had so much fun, that we will do this kind of surfing here in germany, too.
Thanks a lot, an maybe one more time on Oahu again.

Robert was an awesome instructor! It was my first time with SUP and his 1-on-1 instruction was definitely helpful. I've been thinking about trying SUP and, afterwards if I enjoyed it, investing in a board. After his instruction and advice on picking out a board to suit my skill and stats, I ended up buying one along with a paddle! I believe it will be a worth while investment for my fun and health! I highly recommend trying out SUP, starting with his instruction. :) Thanks much! :)

I was very impressed with my downwind lessons with Robert. His expert instruction and spot on advice during the Hawaii Kai run allowed me to make adjustments and see instant results. I would recommend him to anyone interested in SUP downwinders.

As first time Stand Up Paddlers we took a 1.5 hour lesson with Robert. It was a very good experience even tough the weather conditions were not the best. The following day we had the opportunity to try severals boards at the free Blue Planet Stand Up Paddle clinics and board demos and were able to SUP without the beginner feeling. Thanks Robert and his team.
