Description: Stand-Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is the fast-growing water sport/recreation...
Stand-Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is the fast-growing water sport/recreation in the world. It’s new, exciting, adventurous and peaceful all at the same time! And, it's easy, an adventure for the whole family plus it’s fun! And it gets you outdoors and on the water! The view from a Paddleboard is incredible! Since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy wonderful views of the sea life and the horizon! And, you just may encounter dolphins, manatees and/or or a school of fish! It’s almost like walking on water! And, the health benefits are amazing too! It’s great for working all of your core muscles! We offer everything from SUP and Kayaking Lessons & Rentals to SUP Parties & Corporate Events! And we are mobile! We come to you or you can choose to meet us - we have several locations including two in Safety Harbor and we just moved to our new location on Clearwater Beach - Barefoot Bay Resort Motel right on the intercoastal on Clearwater Beach!

Great experience! Quick and easy sign up and got us out on the water just as quickly. He also allowed us to stay out longer (if needed) with no extra cost if we saw Dolphins or something. We will definitely be back!

The workers were extremely nice and helped explain how to operate the boards and made us feel very safe and prepared. Super flexible with times, location and pickup with awesome personalities. Definitely recommend these guys to anyone looking for a new, fun experience in Florida!

We went paddleboarding with a group of seven girls and it was such a fun experience. The owner of the shop was really friendly and helpful. Unlike most places that we went to in Clearwater, he offered to take pictures for us for free that we could download from online. This was a nice change of pace from the typical... More

Thomas did a wonderful job orienting us to paddleboarding. The bay was a good place to try it out. Highly recommend it.

This was my first time paddle boarding- the instructor was friendly, helpful, and clear. It was an amazing experience for such a cheap price, and I would absolutely go back again. With their help I was able to get a hang of the sport quite quickly, with an hour to explore the vast water area that's available! THANK YOU, SUP!!!

I went with a bunch of my workout friends and it was so much fun. We were all begginers and Casey our instructor walked us through everything. It did not take long for us to get up on the boards. We paddled and then went through a workout routine of squats, toe touches, planks and ab moves. We finished with... More

I went with a group of friends to not only learn how to paddle board, but to also get a quick workout in while on the water. We had a fabulous time- most of us were 100% beginners meaning we had never been on a board. We were all up and on the water in no time! While on the... More
