- Our SUP rentals include premium race & touring paddleboards
Fun Unlimited carries three different types of stand up paddle boards:
- Surfing—At 10-feet long, these are the shortest boards and have a high rocker (banana shape) made for surfing and maneuverability.
- All-around—At 11 to 12-feet long, these boards are for paddling, and they are stable in choppy water.
- Touring—At 12.5 to 14-feet long, these are fast, narrow boards, also good in choppy water.
In general terms, beginners should start with wider, longer boards as they are stable in the water, making it easier for you to gain your balance.
Fun Unlimited, located at the Lighthouse Point Marina on Boca Ciego Bay and serving the Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg areasof Florida, carries everything you need to either rent or buy a paddleboard. Contact us at (727) 479-9075 for more information, and be sure to check out our SUP tour options. We specialize in making fun affordable.
Standup Paddle Boards
Paddle boarding is similar to surfing, but it’s designed for water cruising. While you can surf with certain types of paddle boards, the sport is really about standing on the board and propelling yourself through the water with a paddle. Athletes love to cross-train on paddle boards, as they provide an excellent core workout. The sport appeals to all types of outdoor enthusiasts because it is so versatile. Depending upon the type of board you choose, you can fish, sightsee, surf, and even do yoga from your paddle board.
SUP Rentals Not Just for the Ocean
Paddle boarding is not just for the ocean. In fact, beginners often find it easiest to learn in the calm waters of bays, lakes, or rivers. Once you have the hang of it, you’ll enjoy countless hours of fun whether you want to catch the waves, fish, or cruise along the shore line enjoying the scenery. Since you are standing, you get an unobstructed view of the water.
Paddle boarders can even take along a friend or pet, because the front of the board can accommodate a “hitchhiker.” Grab a cooler and paddle out from Fun Unlimited’s location to the beach for a family-friendly or romantic picnic and back again as the sun is setting. Once you’ve got the stand up paddle boarding bug, you’ll want to check out our specials page for great deals on multiple rentals.
