Do I have to schedule a rental ahead of time?
We highly recommend that you make a reservation ahead of time. This is the only way that we can guarantee you availability. You're always welcome to do a walk in but we don't always have capacity to accommodate all walk-ins.
How do the month and season pass work?
If you're a local or going to be on the water more than once in a season our passes are a great option. Our season passes are valid for either 30 or 365 days from the purchase date. This pass always you to take the board out on Monday-Friday for up to 2 hours. Due to availability, on the weekend, we can only accommodate 1 hour trips per day.
I have my own equipment, how do I access the river?
The city has made an amazing launch ramp in Renaissance park under the Market street bridge. Simply park in the parking lot and drop your gear in the water whenever you like.
Do you sell your used boards at the end of the season?
We sell a large portion of our rental fleet at the end of the season. Write hello@l2outside with the header "Add me to Used Board Sales." If you're on this list you will be the first to receive an email with all our used inventory that is for sale.
I have never been on a stand up paddle board, is it hard?
SUP (Stand Up Paddle) boarding is the fastest growing water sport because there is such a low barrier to entry. Almost anyone can do it. Our boards are 11 feet long and very stable. Come on down and give it a shot.
Can my child Paddle Board by herself?
We do not allow children under the age of 12 to rent a board. We recommend putting children under the age of 12 on a SUP with an adult or renting a tandem kayak or board zilla (5 person board). Minors over the age of 12 must have parent consent, a signed waiver by the guardian, and parent supervision while on the water.
What should I bring with me on my trip?
You may get wet so plan accordingly. We sell dry bags in the store. You're welcome to leave any valuables in your hotel, car, or behind the counter at our store front. We encourage renters to SUP bare foot and bring a towel. Also, stay hydrated.
How do I keep track of time while I am on the river?
Each renter is responsible to keep track of his or her time while on the river. So bring a water proof watch or buy a dry bag to put your cell phone in.
