PROPER GEAR IS ESSENTIAL !

If you have questions about gear and equipment - we're here to help.
We'll show you what to look for in the perfect board and then match your paddle, leash and accessories accordingly.

To make the rental or lesson process as simple as possible, or when choosing to purchase your own gear, we'll need some basic information :

                        •   What is your height and weight ?
                        •   Will you be sharing the board ? If so, what are the ranges of height and weight ?
                        •   Where do you intend to use the SUP and what are the water conditions ? (i.e. waves, inland lake, river, etc.)
                        •   Do you have other water sport experience ? (i.e. surf, windsurf, kayak, etc.)
                        •   Who will be using the SUP and How will they be using it ? (i.e. core fitness, relaxation, 'the kids', family & friends, etc.)
