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. SUPs are big which makes it difficult and unsafe to load into the back of trucks, so we usually advise against it.

We no longer do Friday demos, but any of our boards can be scheduled for a private demo. We ask that you come by the shop and we will identify a couple of boards that will work for you, and then meet you at Willard for you to try them. Expect about 10-15 minutes per board. These demos are always free.

This summer we are focused on offering many opportunities for all kinds of group paddling experiences. Reference the Calendar on our homepage to see what is available. Here is a sample:
