There is no denying it, stand-up paddle boarding has become a sensation among all ages of water enthusiasts. It’s a great workout, a great way to spend time on the water, and has tons of unexpected benefits to your body and mind. If you’re looking to try paddle boarding on your next trip to West Palm Beach, don’t forget these three items brought to you by your friends at Beach Water Sports.

Items to Bring While Paddle Boarding

1. The Paddle Board and Paddle

You’ll have a hard time paddle boarding without the paddle board and paddle! When you rent one from Beach Water Sports, you’ll be supplied with an affordable board that has been well-maintained by our friendly staff. We also have a paddle board rental specialist on staff to answer all of your questions and make sure you rent the right paddle board for your excursion. Not only do we provide you with new, high-quality equipment, we also take the time to show you the basics of maneuvering.

2. Sun Protection

If you’re vacationing here in West Palm Beach, you’ll need to remember that the sun is likely more intense here than back home. So before you set out on your paddle board excursion, make sure you’re dressing with the elements in mind. Consider a long-sleeve swim shirt over your regular swimsuit, sunglasses, and a floppy hat for added sun protection, and don’t forget to wear sunscreen! Nothing ruins a vacation faster than a sunburn!

3. Life Jacket

Wearing a life jacket might not be the most comfortable, but it is definitely necessary. If you’re a first-time paddle boarder, it’s likely that you’ll end up in the water at some point, so make sure you’re being safe. Even great swimmers can find themselves in dangerous situations on occasion, so be sure to make the smart choice.

At Beach Water Sports, we have all the essentials to make sure you have a successful paddle boarding experience. In addition to our stand-up paddle board rentals, we also offer a variety of boats for rent from our Stuart, FL, and Jupiter, FL, locations. Contact us today at (561) 745-6900 (Jupiter) or (772) 225-2000 (Stuart).
