Bob was helpful from the moment I called to inquire about rentals. Outstanding demeanor from then until we returned our boards and kayaks. He gave my kids quick but thorough instruction to use their boards and kayaks and provided a great map so we could navigate and enjoy the mangroves. His staff is top notch. Cheerful and quick to help... More

What can I say.. I've been hunting for the right board for a while when I made the call to Bob. His first words were "I do sell boards, I've got some out today if you want to try them". What? Try before I buy? Needless to say, I found not only my perfect sup but a guy who isn't... More

The service and experience was exceptional. This has been something I've been wanting to do for a long time. For my first time, the service was super helpful. I would definitely recommend anyone to do it here. Make sure the tide is high the day you go though, otherwise you can't make it through the mangrove tunnels.

Bob is very warm gracious and easygoing, and his quick but thourough overview of the to do's prepared me well . I felt no fear once I was on the board and realized what I have been missing in my life. I went with three others for a bit then happily went off on my own enjoying some true peace... More

My boyfriend took myself and a friend of mine paddleboarding for valentines day and I have to say that it was an amazing experience. Bob was super friendly, gave us several options in equipment and let us head out after a few quick but thorough instructions. He provided us with the boards, paddles adjusted to our heights, a drybag for... More

Learning SUP was on my “to do list” forever, and now I am hooked! If we return to Sarasota we sure will go with Bob again. Here is why I recommend him to first timers and others as well: 1) Down to earth guy who doesn’t blow smoke – he explained in easy way what SUP is about and how... More

My sister and I had a great time paddleboarding. We had done it before, but Bob was more than willing to go over the basics as well as some tips for getting the maximum power out of each stroke. Bob arrived on time and prepared, and he even had a dry box so we could keep our phones with us,... More

Bob at Sarasota Paddleboard company is fabulous to deal with. He will ensure you a successful day with the Paddleboard. He will set you up with the correct board and location. He is even full service and will apply sunscreen if you need him to.

Bob arrived ahead of our appointed time. As first time paddle boarders, he spent the time to acquaint us with the equipment as well as technique in using the board. In addition, he spent about 10 minutes in the water and suggested areas and routes we should take. We highly recommend Bob and his company, Sarasota Paddleboard Company
