Do you Charge Deposits?

What do I get with the board rental?

In addition to a quality Inflatable Paddleboard, we'll also supply a handy backpack carry bag, a pump, a paddle and a leash. 
You can also - for additional cost - order buoyancy aids and dry bags in our booking system.

Am I insured?

This means that our kit is covered for up to £5M to other peoples' property when the board are being used correctly when under Hire.

We DO NOT  provide Hirers with Personal Injury Cover. Hirers are advised to have cover and check with their own home or travel policy before hiring.
If you need to purchase insurance, then we can recommend this site:

We insure our boards for damage and theft. There will be a charge for any damage or loss to our boards. For more details click HERE

Do I Need a Licence?

If you are going on public inland waterways, you will need a waterways license.
All of our boards have inland waterway licenses through British Canoeing. In 2021 they stopped issuing physical evidence, so if a customer is challenged by the authorities, they should put them on to the company to sort out. 

How does your rental system work?

We use an advance live online booking system to make booking with us - both simple and secure - we use Stripe for credit cards.
We've made a quick Video for customers to see how it all works HERE
Feel free to call us too!
We also rent from our base near Marlow on the River Thames - with onsite parking

Are your boards good for children?

Yes, they are stable and lightweight.
We always recommend that children wear bouyancy aids and are supervised by a capable adult at ALL times on the water.
