Find The Best SUP / Paddle Board Rentals [Near You]
If you’re a novice SUP boarder or a first-timer, you don’t want to be buying an expensive paddle board until you know that you actually enjoy the sport.
SUP rentals ticks all the boxes and meets your needs, no matter where you are.
You’re probably thinking:
There are no excellent SUP paddle board rentals near me, or near any place I know, that are worth checking out
Here’s the deal:
We’ve done all the leg-work and come up with a wide-ranging list of paddle board rentals.
We are not just listing any stand-up paddle board rentals; we have found and tested the best places in the country and listed them by location to make it simple. Also, many of these spots offer free lessons if you feel that you need more training before you take to the water.
What about SUP rental prices?
Generally, stand up paddle board rentals are more costly over the holidays, and you can expect rental pricing to mostly be structured around hourly or daily rental rates. If you are on holiday, some SUP centers do rent paddle boards for the duration of your stay at a discounted rate. Hourly rates hover around $20 to $30 per hour, and per day rates are around $75 for about eight hours. Expect to supply your personal details, and contact number when you rent a stand-up paddle board, and also some places do ask for a small upfront deposit that will be refunded when you return the paddle board.
You can now plan your trips to include some downtime on the water while you are away, or you can rent a paddle board close to home; whatever suits you best.
Bookmark this page because we have listed SUP centers and stand up paddle board rentals near me, near you and wherever else the road might lead throughout the US in the future. SUP boarding is big and getting bigger, and SUP centers are definitely keeping pace.

Covewater Paddle Surf
Established in 2010

Thanks for a great paddle today Olivier!
I came down to Santa Cruz from the Bay Area two weeks ago to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday party with our gang and Olivier at Covewater taught us all paddle boarding. I was so pleased with the lesson and experience that I brought my three daughters down today to join me in another lesson with Covewater. Olivier delivered the same expert, enthusiastic, and gracious lesson to my daughters as he did earlier.
Covewater offers the best equipment, instruction, and attitude around. My daughters will not shut up about how much fun they had today.

Great place. Great customer service. They really took care of me and my wife and took the extra time to explain how to paddle board. Since it was our first time paddle boarding they made sure we went to a location where the water was calm and safe. Made our first paddle boarding experience wonderful.

I loved our experience. We did the shell key excursion and it was like paddle boarding in a calendar–gorgeous. The water was calm we saw some stingrays and there was a duck following us that we watched dive and catch a fish. I definitely recommend it. The guide Jason is super friendly and gives great paddle boarding instructions.
