Rented SUP's on St. Patty's Day, three adults and one kid (Grandpa (in a kayak), Parents, 8 year old on his own board) for half a day. Process was very easy Bob and son Bobby were super friendly despite being very busy during the March Break rush. We are experienced paddlers so just grabbed our boards and paddled. Never thought...

This company is the best, the owner, Bob is super friendly and helpful. He made sure we had the equipment that was best for our size and ability and is really good at directing you to the best places to go. I took my 70 year old mother kayaking in the mangroves and then rented a SUP board for myself... More

A must do if you are staying in Sarasota. Very friendly Bob and his son, a great trip with 3 children (10,8,5) and 2 adults for 3 hours in the mangroves. Highly recommended.

Sup boards, kayaks--great service, good basic lesson, beautiful setting. I rented a very nice board at a reasonable rate, with helpful input. Bob has a map through the mangroves where I was alone with pelicans, herons and an osprey. Can't wait to return. Bob the owner was helpful in every way. He wants a good experience for all adventurers.

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.
