Bob is a great business operator and is always available for guidance, conditions and boards/Kayaks. Longboat Key had some decent waves on 11.26:11.27:11.28.2014 and Bob delivered boards each morning within the hour. He let us try various boards from his large quiver of SUP boards. We highly recommend calling Sarasota Paddleboard Company for you SUP, Kayak and surf board needs.... More

Bob is amazing. Hes passionate about the sport and incredibly helpful. He is friendly and welcoming to paddlers of all abilities. He makes sure you are properly equipped for your ability. I really enjoyed the quick lesson. Hes in a great location too. I wouldn't even consider paddling with any other outfitter. Bob is number one!

Bob was on time, gave great tips, and was a patient and enthusiastic teacher. If you are uncertain about trying paddleboarding or kayaking, give Sarasota Paddleboarding Company a call. I think you will have a great time. I wish I would have called long ago.

So as a couple in our fifties we thought we should give paddle boarding a go. Bob the owner assured us we would be fine and gave us some pointers before setting us off on a couple of hours of pure fun. We would definitely do this again with this company.

Bob is incredibly knowledgable about paddle boarding and everything to do with the waters in the Sarasota area. He sets you up with the correct board for your ability, directs your adventure taking into account wind, weather, tide and your experience. He has a beat on where dolphins and manatee are likely to be and advises about other marine life.... More

After searching online and locally, I found Bob at Sarasota Paddleboard Company and had the best experience I could have hoped for. I talked to him a couple of times on the phone about what we were looking for and... More

This was our first time paddleboarding and were able to get up on our first try, even at 60 years old. Bob gave us excellent, detailed instructions. We had two dolphins playing around us and saw a manatee on our adventure. The beach was a nice place to rest in the middle of our trip.

I was recently down on Longboat Key, visiting family and wanted to go paddle boarding. I knew that my kids probably wouldn't be interested in the half day session, (they're 7 and 9), and felt it would be a waste of money, and a not so enjoyable experience, for me. Bob offers delivery to LBK, for $65, so I called... More
