Stand UP Paddling is still the best social distant sport, just you, the SUP and the water!
The one hour rental is the perfect amount of time to take a tour around the Santa Cruz Harbor, paddling past gorgeous yachts, basking sea lions and calm waters.
Paddling in the Santa Cruz Harbor is easy but our rentals are not for the novice or under 18 year olds. All under 18 year olds must be accompanied by an adult – it is a busy harbor and important to paddle safely (especially on the weekends).
KIDS love to SUP, and we love families!
In the summer months best time to bring your under 12 is between 9am and 11am. The winds pick up at 12 and they really struggle getting around the harbor.
Best time of the day to paddle is before 11am and after 3pm.
12 – 3pm does get busy with many boats and the winds usually pick up after 11am and stays windy till about 3pm.
For the first time beginner we do have our Intro Lesson the easy get up and go paddle lessons which will teach you the fundamental basics – the forward paddle stroke, the turn and most importantly the stop.
All SUP rentals must be booked on-line to minimize contact at the SUP Shack and waivers are signed prior to arriving. We cannot store your personal belongings so please keep everything in your car prior to your arrival.
Masks are required when visiting the SUP Shack but can be removed when paddling on the water.
SUP equipment is sanitized after each use.
All reservations must be canceled 24 hours prior to the date of reservation to avoid any cancellation fees.
