Paddleboard Lessons & Rentals in Marina del Rey
Rent paddle boards from us! We are a really small shop and we always give priority to lessons. During the week we typically have rental boards available, but on the weekends it can be tough to handle rentals when we are busy with lessons. Contact us and we’ll let you know whether anything is available. If you request a rental, the assumption is that you KNOW HOW TO PADDLE. If you do not know how to paddle, you should not be renting boards. Our prices are very low ($20/board first hour, $10/board each additional hour), but they do not include instruction. If you do not know how to paddle, you have two options. Your best option is to take a lesson. You only need one lesson – we will make you totally proficient. If you don’t want to pay for a lesson, you can pay $10/person for dock instruction. We will explain everything to you so you can be more competent in the water when you go out on your own and I won’t have to get in my van and pick you up in Playa del Rey, thus ruining my day for $20. If you say you’re going to figure it out on your own, or you say you know how to paddle, we will let you rent a board. But if we send you out and your paddle is backwards, you’re not standing on the board properly, or you clearly don’t have control over the board, we will contact you back and give you two options — pay $10/person for the dock instruction, or go home without paying and without paddling. It is our responsibility to keep everyone safe in the water. If you knock your board into someone else’s boat, that boater isn’t going to be able to identify you, but they know exactly who we are. If you get out into the middle of the main channel, the sheriff knows our boards and will come and shut us down, not you. So we have to protect ourselves. Also, our dock is located in a private marina, and we cannot have boards going on or off the dock. Our dock master prohibits this for the safety of the other boats in the area. If your friend has his/her own board, s/he will have to launch from Mother’s Beach or the public boat launch area; the board cannot go on or off our dock. Thanks for understanding!

I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making boats more accessible and affordable to others. I hope to get out on the water more and help boating grow.
