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!
