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!

We rented paddle boards and set out for some paddling. The current grew strong and my wife began to have trouble making her way back to the dock. I made it back to the doc for help. Dom was working - busy with customers but still managed to help us out. She let me take a kayak back to my... More

One of the best parts of my trip to Clearwater. Good, direct, simple instructions were given by the instructor. We hit the water and everything was great. We paddled over to the aquarium. The aquarium tour boat pulled out of their dock, and when they motored by I waved to them. Fabulous!

I would highly recommend if you want to try SUP. Very easy to set up a time. Daniel was friendly and helpful and had five of us up on the paddle boards very quickly. It was our first time and we loved it.

It was our first time ever stand up paddle boarding and we were a little nervous. Daniel was very knowledgeable during our lesson and his relaxing attitude put us at ease. After paddling for a while on our own, he checked in with us and was very helpful when we were still getting over our beginner's nerves. We had a... More

The gentleman that helped me and my friend was so patient with us. Though I fell off the board many a times, the gentleman made sure that I stood on the board at least once before we left. I would recommend this to anyone. I had a great time despite the lack of agility and balance I had. Legs felt... More

Staff was extremely friendly. My wife and I got a lesson before heading out on the Paddleboards. The lesson was brief, but absolutely perfect for first-timers. We had so much fun! Go visit!

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!
