*URGENT* MUST READ: If it's your first time renting from us, we STRONGLY SUGGEST you opt-in to our Brief Orientation to accelerate your rental experience (previously mandatory) - Since less than 1% of our local population has attempted SUPing, we obligate ourselves to facilitating the most fun, safety, and overall satisfaction for your experience on the water. We devote the first hour of your rental to rocking out the Quick Start to SUP course accredited by the ACA* where you'll learn all the basics to having a blast on the water:

  1. We begin with a quick warmup of SUP terminologies and demonstrate proper board carries to put into the water.
  2. Then we preview the "4 W's" (Wind/Water/Weather/Waves) and how to launch safely before standing up.
  3. Finding the sweet spot for standing up and engaging the paddle with proper strokes and maneuvers.
  4. We then discuss safety and demonstrate rescues on the water so that you're self-sustainable should anything arise when you're left unattended! By now you've become confident and comfortable enough to enjoy your rental to its fullest potential without the concern for any unknown hazards and your own safety! You also gain the option of testing out different boards to determine your best fit for maximum fun factor! It takes a little effort up front, but most first-time paddlers enjoy their rental experience much greater when they know what they're doing!!!
In the past, we didn't allow rentals without this mandatory orientation, and this lesson usually costs $30 per hour, but you can add the brief orientation to your rental for only $10 per person!

*Quickstart to SUP is an introductory course accredited by the American Canoe Association which is the Gold Standard in the paddle sports industry and has been making the world a safer place to paddle since 1880. All orientations are conducted by ABC founder Evan Young who is a Certified SUP Instructor by the ACA and SEIC (Safety Education & Instruction Council)
