Our Philosophy:

We want you to have a great time, and would never send you out with gear we didn't like and trust. Our rental inventory is gear that we love. In fact, we often finding ourselves throwing it in our cars when we have time to get into our own adventures. We also know what a pain it is to wait around for a shop to open in the morning before you can get going. Our rental periods begin the evening before your selected date and end the morning after - at no extra cost. That's right, pick it up Friday evening, use it all weekend, then bring it back to us Monday morning for the same cost as a regular weekend rental.

Stand Up Paddleboards

Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs) offer you an easy, affordable, and unique way to experience the Rio Grande or New Mexico's other rivers and lakes. Our inflatable SUPs can be transported easily in your car's trunk, and quickly pump up to become stiff and stable. 

What Comes with our Rentals?

Every SUP we rent will comes with an air pump for easy inflation, a paddle that is adjustable to the user, a coast guard approved life jacket with safety whistle, and carrying bag.  We also include additional fins of various sizes tailored to your adventure. Dry bags are available upon request.

Who should SUP

Stand Up Paddling is a family-friendly activity and is one of the most beginner-friendly ways to enjoy the water. Our boards are designed for general use on flat to gently moving water. Our boards have a 350lb capacity, and are immensely easy to use. Paddle boarding also offers an excellent fitness opportunity. With proper paddling technique you can exercise your abs, back, shoulders, and legs. Balancing on the board, while not difficult, helps activate smaller, stabilizer, muscles that are otherwise difficult to exercise with traditional workouts. Stand Up Paddling burns between 300-700 calories per hour.

Recreational & Tandem Kayaks

 

Recreational kayaks (rec boats) provide a fun way to enjoy calm water while sitting closer to the water's surface. Rec boats provide more stability than a SUP, but at the loss of maneuverability. Great for a day of fishing on the lake or beginner boaters. 

What Comes with our Rentals?

Every recreational kayak we rent will comes with a paddle, a coast guard approved life jacket with safety whistle, and tie downs for your vehicle/trailer.  The Tandem Kayak comes with two paddles and two life jackets. dry bags are available upon request.

Who should kayak

We firmly believe that anybody can kayak, and we mean anybody. The low, seated position of a kayak can be adapted for people of all shapes, sizes, and abilities. Our recreational kayaks can even be outfitted for the specific needs of people with disabilities - just give us a call ahead of time. Recreational kayaks have a 350lb capacity (500lb for the tandem kayak), and with a little practice can be precisely paddled wherever you want to go!

Reviews on our Camping Rentals

I recently came back from a trip down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and it was the first time I had been backpacking since I was a kid. Needless to say, the tent and sleeping bag I had would have filled my whole backpack, so not wanting to purchase new equipment, I did a search and found MST Adventures. After a brief conversation, Corey and Michael offered exactly what I was looking for and the whole process was seamless and easy. When I picked up the gear, I was immediately more excited about the trip given how light and compact the equipment was. The setup was easy and made the whole trip more enjoyable. I’m really glad I found these guys and would recommend them to anyone. -James Fox, 2018
