Look no further for paddleboard rentals and sales. Bob is by far the best! I've been interested in SUP for a while and when I finally decided to try it, I gave Bob a call. I tried his company because of the many good reviews he gets...and I'm SO glad I did. It's obvious why everyone has nothing but good things to say about him. Within 2 minutes of our conversation, I felt like I had known him for years. He is such a genuine and easy going guy. He's clearly loves the sport over the "business" and wants you to have a good time. He will not only deliver equipment and provide instruction, but he will recommend places to go for the best experience. He also had dry packs on hand so that you can bring your phone, money, camera, ect. without worrying about them getting wet.
As for paddleboarding itself, it is a BLAST. I had such a great time. It's something almost anyone can do (Bob will have you feeling like an expert in no time) and is quite the experience. It is not uncommon to get an up close and personal look at manatees, dolphins, etc. while out on the water. After my first time, I intend on making a hobby out of it.
Aside from the fact that Bob is a pleasure to work with, his prices can't be beat. I will definitely be renting from Bob again and eventually buying a board from him as well. I highly recommend Sarasota Paddleboard Company. You will not be disappointed! If I could give him 10 stars, I would.
