Stand up Paddling is catching on as a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get exactly the work you want. It is great for kids through Olympic athletes as the more you work at it, the better the work out you get. At the entry level, this sport is easy to learn and pickup. We have a 2 hour lesson that includes all the gear, which we recommend or you can experiment and learn this sport on your own. Either way we have you covered with lessons, rentals and sales of Stand Up Paddle Boards, (SUP).

* When you pick up the paddle board, you will need to load it onto your vehicle unless you are renting an inflatable SUP, the inflatable SUPs will fit in any car seat. It’s the driver’s responsibility to check that the gear is loaded properly and will not fall off the car. Ropes or cam straps should be securely strapped around the board on a roof or in the bed of a truck. A minimum of two straps is necessary for each board.
* If you reserve an item that is already reserved, yet not marked on the calendar, we will contact you immediately to resolve the issue. It’s rare, but it’s possible for an item to be double booked before the calendar is properly updated.
We offer a free pick-up and a free return day on rentals that are one day or more. For example, a rental that is picked up anytime on Friday and returned anytime on Monday would only be considered a two-day rental. For these rentals, you may pick up your rental 4pm to 6pm the day before your trip. Your rental must be returned by close of business the day of the trip. If your rental items are not reserved to another customer the following day, we can be flexible. When you pick up the equipment, you will need to load it onto your vehicle. It’s the driver’s responsibility to check that gear is properly loaded. Please bring tie downs if you plan to load rental items on the roof of your vehicle. We have some cam straps to help.
* Please clean all equipment before returning it. A wet sponge cleaning is fine.
Make sure there is no mud or dirt on the board or stuck to the grip deck. Make sure all fins are attached properly to the stand up board.
* Once the gear is clean, bring it to the back entrance of our store on 15th St. Notify an employee that you are ready to check in gear. They will check all equipment for damage. If there is damage, your security deposit will be held until the cost of repairs are determined. At that point, you will be notified of charges, and they will be added to your card. Then the security deposit authorization will be lifted.
Fees for excessive wear and tear including holes, tears, large abrasions will be accessed based on repair materials, labor and depreciation of the equipment.

A fully refundable damage/loss security deposit is required at the time of pick-up, & will be held with your personal check or credit card. Repair charges will be assessed for repairable damaged equipment. A contract/liability waiver must be signed by the renter at the time of pick-up.
