What Do I Need to Bring?

You’ll need an ID and credit card to rent a demo kayak or paddle board. You’ll also need to sign a release. Save time by bringing a filled out copy with you. (Download it here.)

You’ll also need a way to transport your boat, so make sure you have straps and an appropriate roof rack or trailer. We do not have racks or trailers for rent, but we do sell boat straps.
