Rentals + Lessons

Private lessons need to be scheduled at least 24 hrs ahead of time. The cost is $75 for 1 person, and $25 for each additional person and includes a SUP board, leash, and paddle. We also offer discounted lessons in a group format at 9, 10 and 11am on Saturday and Thursday mornings. These are $25 per person and will hold a maximum of 6 people. Lessons will last approximately 1hr. Unless otherwise agreed upon, ALL LESSONS WILL TAKE PLACE AT WILLARD BEACH IN SOUTH PORTLAND. YOU MUST GIVE ME YOUR CELL PHONE # WHEN MAKING A LESSON APPT. APPOINTMENTS WITHOUT A CONTACT CELL NUMBER ARE SUBJECT TO CANCELLATION WITHOUT NOTICE.

The best way to learn quickly is to take a lesson and then buy your own board and use it every opportunity you can, but if you aren't fully prepared to make that kind of commitment, you can rent boards from Soposup.
Half day rentals are $35, full day rentals are $55. We also offer multi-day rentals. You can keep the boards after shop hours and simply drop them off at my house before sunset. If you live or are staying locally, I can deliver the boards in the morning, and then pick them up in the afternoon for a small delivery fee. If you have racks on your car, they can be easily strapped to the crossbars.

Finally, Fridays are DEMO-day! Every Friday morning, I will bring a collection of boards to a local beach (usually Willard beach) and anyone is welcome to try them out free of charge. You can see where the Friday-demo is going to happen by checking the twitter feed on the Soposup homepage. If you are interested in a particular board, please call or e-mail me and I will be sure to include it in that days demo fleet. You may be asked to limit your demo of each board to 5 or 10 minutes if there are a lot of people wanting to try, so for a more comprehensive demo-session, you are welcome to schedule a private lesson at some other time and have all the boards to yourself.
