Rentals POST Covid-19 Outbreak

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Hello, paddle friends.  We know you all have been waiting patiently for the world to return to somewhat-normal and the ability to get out and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities.  We have taken many hours to envision a safe, feasible rental strategy for *365 Paddle Pass* holders and hourly renters alike.  At this moment, rental times have been scaled back significantly to allow for proper cleaning measures on our rental fleet after each use.


For the month of August, we are performing rentals daily during specific pockets of time to allow for disinfecting of equipment between uses.  Please be sure to book in advance.  With limited availability, we will book up quickly.  

All L2 Crew members will arrive one hour before the first rental time in 100% good health.  We will be scanning each employee with a no-touch forehead thermometer.  All gear will be clean from the previous day for the first rentals of the new day.  Used life vests will be properly cleaned and hung to dry, with clean, dry life-vests supplied to the next round of rentals.  Disinfected equipment (kayaks + SUP) will be provided to the following rental time period. The L2 Crew will then clean all equipment used during the evening rentals, washed thoroughly and left to dry overnight for use the following day during set scheduled/cleaned rental times.

80% alcohol hand sanitizer is available at our rental station under Market Street Bridge in Coolidge Park for personal use before and after your rental.

As for the shop, all commonly touched surfaces get a good wipe down every 2 hours.  There is 80% alcohol hand sanitizer available for use at each entrance.  Masks are preferred when shopping in-store.  No public use of our restroom or changing room for the time being.  Curb-side pick-up is still an option if you would like to call with your order, or order online via and stop by for a pick-up.

We would love to get you out on the water this season, so please feel free to book in advance for all rentals.  


** If I've rented with L2 in the past and signed a safety waiver for past seasons, do I have to sign a new safety waiver for 2020?  ---- YES.  PLEASE BE SURE TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE RENTAL INSTRUCTIONS IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE RENTAL SAFETY VIDEO  **AND** SIGN A NEW RENTAL SAFETY WAIVER FOR 2020.  One waiver will cover you for the entirety of rentals during the year 2020.

Once Halloween is ended and all the candy is eaten, L2 Outside prepares you for the upcoming winter holidays with our best sales event of 2019.  The time for end-of-season board sales has come!  All of BŌTE's 2019 fiberglass, epoxy and aero boards are greatly discounted and hard-boards include a FREE carbon fiber Axe paddle* with purchase.  Whether you're buying for yourself or a loved one, be prepared for excitement all around. 

Let's talk about the Axe paddle.  BŌTE's go-to paddle is the lightest, strongest and most affordable carbon fiber paddle on the market.  With a fixed height and different colors to best suit your board or mood, the Axe weighs just over 16oz with a convex blade length and width of 17.4" by 8.5".  Made from full 3K carbon fiber along with carbon fiber grip, they are typically priced at $244.99 - yours FREE with a fiberglass or gatorshell board purchase

The main differences between a typical fiberglass BŌTE board and a gatorshell board are weight and toughness.  Fiberglass is lighter, making it great for the paddler concerned about paddle time (lighter boards typically do go faster!), and also make it a breeze loading/unloading from your storage or vehicle.  Gatorshell boards have extra layers of epoxy around the entire board, giving it a layer of protection to withstand bumps on rock or docks, even help protect from those pesky hidden underwater tree limbs and such.  Gatorshell is especially great for those paddlers who may be loaning out the board to friends or for use by the entire family at the lake or beach house.  Each fiberglass or gatorshell board comes with a fixed height Axe paddle and removable fin.

BŌTE's Aero boards are all constructed from military grade PVC to take on any challenge you may have to paddle through.  With BVA deck pads, carry handle, bungee at front and rear, plus D-rings for all your attachments - Aero boards are stuper stable and come with all the accessories you need: adjustable paddle, fin, push pump, patch kit, and owners manual (+paddle sheath on all Bugslinger models +sand spear sheath on Rackham and Rover).   

Now, lets get to the juicy stuff.  All of BŌTE's 2019 fiberglass and aero boards are at a significant discount.  Every.  Single.  Model.

Post-Riverbend River Clean Up Sweep

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Many thanks to our Scenic City community!  L2 Outside's June 23rd cleanup event for the downtown river area conjured almost 40 volunteers and several small businesses.

Congregating at 6:30am to plan the day's cleanup, Randy Whorton with Wild Trails helped to assign all volunteers helpful roles and determine which river areas to sweep for different teams.  From 7-9am, several trash bins were filled and miscellaneous items unearthed along the riverbanks.  

During the clean-up, L2 Outside provided 20 paddle boards and ten kayaks for volunteer use, as well as chicken biscuits from Chick-Fil-A.  Generous donations from other businesses included early morning coffee/paddle-fuel from Mean Mug Coffeehouse, and river aids via Wild Trails, Chattanooga Cycleboats and Chattanooga Paddleboards.

Much gratitude for all those who assisted in this year's Post-Riverbend River Clean Up.  We deeply appreciate your time donated and hope to see you on the river again for 2019!     The L2 Crew
