Important information

Combined weight limit of 450 lbs. per paddle board. If you are over that, we can separate you onto 2 paddle boards.

If a child is old enough (6+) to sit on the paddle board safely on their own, regardless of paddling, then they must pay for their own seat. An adult must go with a child.

What to wear

Please wear comfortable clothing, yoga pants, swimsuit, light layered clothing and flip flops, water shoes or shoes you don’t mind getting wet.

Sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat are a great for sun protection.

What to bring

Bring a small towel to throw over your lap or dry off with if you want to go for a swim (sometimes you get wet from paddling). Bring water or we have bottled water for purchase.
