RENTAL FAQ

  • Can I rent a SUP if I’ve never tried it before? YES you can! We offer “quick start” instruction before you launch to teach you the basic skills 
  • What do I wear? Close-fitting, quick-drying athletic apparel or a bathing suit. Suggested: Water shoes, a retainer for your sunglasses, and basic sun protection.
  • Is there an age limit? Age is not as much of a factor as swimming ability. Pre-schoolers can ride on the board with an adult, as long as they have basic swimming skills. Senior citizens can enjoy SUP because it’s much easier to launch than a kayak and it’s a very low-impact activity.
  • I live on the water, do you deliver? YES! With a minimum 24-hour rental, we deliver in Craven, Carteret and Pamlico counties for a $10 fee
  • Do you offer discounts or group rates? YES! We offer a 10% Military Discount and Group Discount for 6+ paddlers by request.
