What do you mean by $150 minimum?
Because we offer a door-to-door service, we currently can't accommodate rentals of $150 or less. To meet the threshold, you could either rent a single board for three days, two boards for two days, three boards for one day, etc.
Is there a weight limit?
Can I take my dog on the board?
Can your dog swim? As long as you're cool with it, so are we—just remember to stay under the weight limit and a try to not ruin the board.
Do you really bring the boards right to the house and pick them up when we're done?
Yep, we sure do. Pretty cool huh?
What other gear is included with the rental?
All rentals include a board, life jacket, adjustable paddle, leash, and 9" fin.
When does the rental period start?
Our rentals operate by calendar date, so if it's dropped off on Friday and picked up on Sunday it's considered a 3-day rental. Luckily our team likes to get up early, so if you want your board there at 7am, we're happy to make it happen.
What types of boards do you have?
All of our paddle boards are Imagine Surfers that measure 9'9 x 34." They're a little bit heavy at 47 lbs, but are exceptionally stable so that first time paddlers should be able to balance with ease. They're made rom durable, blow-molded plastic, which means they can bang up against a dock and you don't have to worry about dings. They also have handles for conveniently tying the paddleboard up to the dock, and we also have a 12'6" inflatable board that's subject to availability.
