“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

I called Bob and let him know we were coming from Tampa to paddleboard with our kids (ages 9 & 6) for the first time. He was super accommodating, very knowledgable about the water and easy-going. He set us up for paddleboarding success by providing us with a mini lesson & great equipment! I highly recommend this company!

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We had a terrific experience! Bob was incredibly flexible and helpful. On the day we planned to SUP the weather was colder and windier than expected, and it was unclear if we would be able to go out. Bob was able to move our reservation to later in the day (when it was a bit warmer) and found a sheltered cove so we wouldn't miss our one opportunity to get out on the water during a brief trip to Sarasota. We will definitely rent from him again!

“Sarasota Paddleboard Company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Bob is great ambassador of the growing sport of SUP. Not only, is he a top level athlete in the sport but he was one of the main drivers within the scene. His rental quiver ranges from starter boards to super fast and sensitive race boards.He also has great knowledge of all of the local spots no matter what the level or conditions. I have been a marketing professional and educator in wide array of action sports and am very critical on these type of experiences. I will be back and recommend all of my contacts

“Locals love it too.”

Bob and his team are the best!
They will make sure you have the best trip.
Diane was so great with me that I had to get my own board.
He has been attentive to me even after I bought a board from him. Stopping to check on my progress as a new SUPer and sharing more pointers on navigating the local water ways.
Thanks Bob you are the best.
