Great instructions for first time stand up paddlers. Great location to get around. Instructors were great! Definitely recommend this company. Wonderful customer service. And you can grab a drink or food at the Getaway afterwards.

Drove the 1/2 hour to the local shop, but it was not open even thought it was supposed to be as posted on the internet. I have tried to contact the owner multiple times but have not received a call or any communication back... I just do not get it. Terrible customer service.

We rented SUP for 2 days and they were delivered to the home we were renting in the Tampa area. They were on time to deliver and pick up the paddle boards and very helpful with short instruction. Very easy to get the hang of using them and our adult kids enjoyed them on the inlet we were staying on.... More

The hills river on a weekday makes for a great place to try SUP for the first time. We had a great guide who made us feel comfortable and secure while learning. Our guide had us up right away once we were out and helped us navigate gnarly headwinds and some boat wake with ease. A much better experience than... More

We rented four stand-up paddle boards and one kayak for a two hour trek. The people at the facility were wonderful. They gave us great instructions on how to use the boards. We spent two hours on the river and got to experience Tampa from a different perspective. The instructor made it easy to learn and was an enjoyable experience.... More

The only thing negative I could say is they seemed short staffed.we did arrive 20 minutes early but have us time to do paperwork. Then waited for boards to come in. Had kayaks ready though. I only saw two employees. First employee seemed harriedSeems there was... More

We took a SUP class and then did two hours of SUP and had a great time. It was easy to learn, great exercise, and overall a wonderful experience.

For my 65th birthday my wife set up a paddle boarding lesson at Urban Kai. The location and facility are very good. Our instructor (Ida) could not have done a better job in preparing us to enjoy our experience on the water. She got us on the boards and moving comfortably while continuing to give us instruction out on the... More
