I have rented SUP boards from Bob at least 5x, always bringing different friends or family with me. They always have varying levels of experience, mostly beginners. Bob always have the right board for me (medium level of experience), and takes the time to teach my friend or family how to get up and go on the board. The Mangrove tunnels off of Lido bay are a must. Just call or text Bob what type of board you want, the conditions you want (ocean, flat water) the time to meet and he will meet you there. I also follow Sarasota Paddleboard Company on Facebook so I can remember the good times in Florida while I'm working away in cold Boston. Thanks Bob for always being courteous and accommodating for all our SUP needs. I wouldn't rent from anyone else!!!
