New York City is home to many iconic landmarks and destinations, Broadway, Times Square, and much more. However, there is another great spot to see this great big beautiful city – the water. Paddle boarding is becoming a popular sport for all ages and is an extremely versatile activity that can be done almost anywhere, whether the goal is to take your dog for a fun paddle, practice SUP yoga, or just enjoy the view on the back of a paddle board.
To set up your sup rental business you will first need to decide where you would like to rent your paddle boards. This could be a physical store, a mobile service or an online rental and delivery service. When it comes to the types of boards you can rent, there are a lot of options out there – from inflatables to hard paddleboards and all the various accessories you might need.
Unlike kayaks, paddle boards are extremely easy to portage, or move from one body of water to the next. This is largely due to the fact that they are lightweight and are designed with plenty of space for repositioning. This makes them perfect for a rental fleet. Depending on the size of the paddle board, you may also find that they are very durable and can handle many bumps, bruises, and dings.
With a good selection of boards for your customers, you can start offering more services to increase your profits. This might include offering guided tours on the local waterways, or providing special classes for people looking to work on their balance and strength with SUP yoga. These group activities are a great way to catch the eye of potential customers and give them a taste of what your sup rental business is all about.
