CARLSBAD, Calif. Feb. 17, 2016SUP magazine is excited to announce the exclusive Maui Dream Retreat, a luxurious standup adventure on Maui's North Shore April 24-28 hosted by Lumeria Maui Retreat Center. The retreat will feature some of the best paddling teachers on the planet including Kai Lenny, Dave Kalama, Suzie Cooney and more special guests.

Your challenge is to learn to paddle Maui's world-famous Maliko Run with the guidance of these special instructors. The Maliko is one of the most hallowed downwind runs on the planet, with paddlers traveling from all over the world to enjoy its consistent breeze. You will be accompanied by our coaches and a safety team when you hit the water, meaning you can just relax, learn and—most importantly—have fun.

The retreat will feature clinics on fitness, technique, ocean knowledge, safety and much more. Between courses and SUP sessions, students will have opportunities to dine and spend time with their legendary instructors.

Attendees will stay at the Lumeria Maui Retreat located just three miles above the historic plantation town of Paia. Lumeria offers daily yoga classes, spa treatments and features great food, much of which is grown on the premises. This relaxing environment is perfect for unwinding and recovering after a long day of paddling.

The Maui Dream Retreat is an exclusive experience, offering only 12 spots for paddlers (significant others and families are welcome as well) so sign up now. Don't miss this opportunity to paddle the world's best bumps with the world's best paddlers!

Designed by Honolulu architect H.R. Kerr in 1910, Lumeria Maui holds a special heritage. As the oldest wooden structure on Maui, its first incarnation was as the original Fred C. Baldwin Memorial Home, erected by its namesake's sugar cane family. Initially designed to house aging plantation laborers who dedicated much of their lives to cultivating the cane fields, the property and buildings have been used for a range of purposes since the early 1900s, including World War II military housing, and as a dormitory for the nearby Maunaolu Women's College in the 1960s and 1970s. By honoring the site's past while implementing innovative, aspirational design, Lumeria Maui was born as a uniquely beautiful destination on the Hawaiian islands.
