Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a fun, easy, and fast-growing water sport that everyone can enjoy. Amelia Island and surrounding areas are known for great stand up paddle boarding. You will be amazed how fun and exciting paddle boarding right in the ocean is! Many of our paddle board renters have told us they have paddled right next to dolphins and other marine life.
Stand Up, Kneel or Sit
Stand up and paddle around or kneel on the board when you need a break. It offers a great full-body workout, while you enjoy the ocean’s surf. To get past the break in the ocean, paddle straight out and over the waves. The versatility makes stand up paddle boarding a popular choice for skiers, snowboarders, and other athletes looking for an exciting yet relaxing way to cross-train on the water.
High Quality Paddle Boards & Equipment
Our boards are great for beginners while still offering the cutting edge technology for experienced paddlers. Our stand up paddle boards are 12 ft long which allows you to have stability and support while still allowing you easy mobility on the board. A paddle, life vest and a leash are provided with every rental. Life vests must be worn or be secured on the board at all times.
