  • Availability: Some rental companies, especially during peak seasons, recommend making reservations beforehand.

3. Pick Up the Paddleboard:

  • Identification: Bring a valid ID for the rental agreement.

5. Return the Paddleboard:

  • Return on time: Be mindful of the agreed-upon return time to avoid late fees.
  • Inspection: The rental company might inspect the board for any damage.

6.  Weather: Check the weather forecast before you go. Avoid strong winds or storms.

7.  Sun protection: Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.

8.  Life jacket: Always wear a life jacket, especially if you’re not a strong swimmer.

9.  Leave no trace: Respect the environment by packing out all your trash.
