We just returned from a first time, week long Lake Norman vacation. Because our vacation house rental came with few amenities, I knew we'd need kayaks and an SUP to keep our extended family focused on beautiful Lake Norman.

The vacation rental office offered a few suggestions for weekly rentals. All were steeply priced and were really focused on motor boat rentals. My Aloha Paddle was the answer! They offer a reasonably priced 5 day rental with delivery and pick up. Rob was personable and professional. When he heard we'd be paddling with our kids ages 10 and 13, he made sure to outfit us with smaller kayaks and brought a selection of life jackets. Even my tentative 6 year old nephew and his 71 year old poppa enjoyed the kayak in our small cove. The whole family couldn't wait to try the SUP and everyone loved it.

My Aloha Paddle offers terrific service at a great price point.

If you're looking for something fun to do, look no further...My husband & I just got back from our first paddle board experience and I must say we had way more fun than we expected. We took the 90 minute instructor led class and Rebecca and Megan were so friendly. Rob was helpful on the phone with the reservation and once again, Rebecca was the best instructor you could ask. And for all the first timers out there like us, don't be scared. The water isn't too deep and you won't be hurt by falling in (may be you should have your life jackets on if you aren't that great a swimmer, but that's just until you get comfortable). Trust me, I feel 5-6 times and here I'm looking forwarding to going back.

Thank you Rebecca, Rob & Megan for the great experience !!

The weekend family outing was trying out paddle boarding on the south end of Lake Norman. Aloha Paddle is a great outfitter, supplied not only boards and vests but also croakies and some water once we finished. Our guide Becca was also outstanding, great instructor and also just fun to hang with. We'll eagerly return soon, you should too!

We did the introductory lesson with Mikey, He was great instructor. Gave us great tips. We spent a beautiful 2 hours on the lake. It sure helped that the weather was perfect! Would definitely rent from them again. All of the staff were awesome! Thanks for a great day!

What a wonderful way to start the day! Paddle board yoga. I had tried SUP a couple of times before so I was familiar with being on the board. However, I wasn't sure how I'd like yoga away from the mat, I was determined not to fall...but I was the first to fall right in! Falling took the edge off, encouraging me to play more, both on that board and in life!
The staff & instructor were absolutely wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone who loves yoga or the water!
