Important Reminders and FAQ

We look forward to your visit and can't wait to get you on the water!
Here are some helpful reminders to help you prepare for your paddle.

- We do try to run our reservations on schedule… That said, we are a surf shop so cut us some slack ;). Please arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled departure to submit your waiver and get your gear/instruction.
- Please leave your valuables at home. We do have limited space in the shop for keys and dry goods.
-It’s a good idea to bring a waterproof watch if you have one so you can keep tabs on when to get back to the dock for the next crew to start their SUP adventure.
- Gratuity for your board sherpas/instructors are not included in your rental rates. Tips are greatly appreciated. At 10-14’ long and 28-32” wide, they’re not exactly easy to carry but our board sherpas help make it easy for you to get on the water.
- Payments are made in full at time of booking. If you change your mind within 24 hours of your scheduled date, we can offer you credit toward another date that season.
- Weather Cancellations: If the weather is unfavorable (high winds, high river flow rate, or lightning) you will have the option to receive a credit toward another date or for an in-store purchase. Credits are for that season only.

  • Please arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled departure to submit your waiver and get your gear/instruction. Please be sure to bring a signed waiver for each member of your party when you check in. Our shop space is small, so it is helpful (though not required) to have it completed before you arrive.
  • Please leave your valuables at home. We do have limited space in the shop for keys and dry goods, but we do not have lockers.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Can I do it?
Yes, this is a very friendly beginners sport. 6 yrs through seniors paddle with us - there is no age limit.  13– 18 years may paddle alone with a parent signature on their waiver. You can even bring your dog-they want to have fun too!

Do I need experience?
Basic instruction is provided by our staff – it’s plenty to get you up and paddling.  If you want more take one of our classes, join a class, or register for a lesson.

Is it safe?
Absolutely... we provide a PFD (personal floatation device), and your board also serves as a flotation device.

Where should I paddle?
We'll make suggestions based on River flow, winds and weather. There's about 2 miles of navigable river that you can explore. 
DON'T PADDLE IN THE BOAT CHANNEL - it's for boat traffic and dangerous for paddlers. We’ll point it out before you leave, and guide you as to the best areas to paddle and point out any other local hazards.  Upon leaving our docks look carefully both ways before crossing the River to the Island. Please be back on time!  Others may be waiting to start their rental.

Where should I park?
Convenient parking is available on nearby downtown streets, or you may choose to park in any of the available Republic or CARTA lots near the Tennessee Aquarium. Most downtown city parking requires a fee.
