Paddle Board Rentals


All Rentals must be transported with your vehicle.  (Pads and straps are included with every rental.)

For those wishing to venture out on their own, we offer rentals to fit any time frame from a half day to a week. Because we specialize in SUP, the difference shows in our customer service, knowledge, and equipment quality/durability. Every rental comes with all the gear and safety equipment you need; including pads and straps for your vehicle, ensuring easy transport to your launch location. Our staff will help you load up and are happy to provide some great suggestions for places to paddle away from the busy crowds and boat launches.

For safety and liability reasons, all rentals must be taken to the lake.  We generally recommend those wishing to rent for the ocean to come on a guided trip with us (especially those with limited experience).  However, we do allow ocean rentals on a case-by-case basis to those who are able to demonstrate competency beyond a beginner level.  Please call to discuss your expectations if you think this is you.

Safety is paramount to us so regardless of your desired paddling location or intention at the time of your reservation, please be prepared to have a chat with our staff about where you plan to paddle and be aware that we may place limits on where you can paddle based on your experience level and daily weather conditions..  However, at the end of the day you are responsible for your own safety.

What's Included: Tough durable board from Glide SUP, high quality Werner paddle, PFD, safety leash, pads/straps to put the boards on your vehicle, a free orientation on proper use of the equipment, and a map with recomended paddling spots.

Limitations: We have a 2-3 boards per vehicle limit. In some instances a truck or vehicle with a proper rack may fit up to 4 boards. Please call to discuss your options if you are looking to transport more than 2-3 boards.Delivery:  Drop-off and pick-up is available evenings from 7-8pm in the MDI area for multi-day and weekly rentals for an additional fee with an advance reservation.
