Anyone know if someone is renting standup paddle boards on the island right now?

I know Aquatic Sports used to in town on the beach by Holiday Hotel but not sure if they still do, think it changed hands a while back.

I am really surprised that paddle boarding hasn't taken off here. Would seem to be an ideal place for it because of the lack of surf, at least on the days when the wind is light.

Might be a good business opportunity for someone!

Well there you go, you could do that rather than galavanting around the world. LOL

I paddle every day I can because it is so much fun and great exercise. On a calm day, it is 7 minutes to the reef. Boards can be rented at the holiday hotel and maybe Caribbean villas. I used to be out alone or with a friend but now I am seeing 5 or 6 boarders out there on calm days. You definitely have to pick your weather.

Haha! That would tie us down too much -- traveling is our thing. grin

Sounds like there are some enterprising folks already renting boards; I wasn't aware. Great!

I travel down to Southern California often on business and paddle boarding is very popular down there. A mellow sport and great exercise out on the water.
