CHOOSING BOARDS FOR A PADDLE BOARD RENTAL BUSINESS

The first thing to consider is if you want to stock hardboards or inflatables. Our research shows that the world’s best schools and rental operations are now choosing inflatable paddle boards over hard boards for reasons discussed here.

However, one word of warning. Not all inflatable boards are equal! Be wary of the cheaper, poor quality versions on the market which are unlikely to be able to withstand the heavy usage they’ll receive through a rental business. Not only that, but they also won’t perform as well as their higher quality counterparts, leaving your customers disappointed.

When it comes to deciding on which type of boards to choose, we’d always recommend starting with a good all-round paddle board which can be enjoyed by a wide range of abilities. In due course, you can add more specialized shapes to your collection, such as race boards or Yoga paddle boards, but when you’re starting out it’s better to have boards with the widest possible range of use.

WHERE TO PURCHASE YOUR INFLATABLE SUPS

WHERE TO PURCHASE YOUR INFLATABLE SUPS

As with all major purchases, it’s always best to do your research. Once you’ve decided your requirements for your SUP rental business, search around for the companies who can provide what you need. Bear in mind that by talking directly to a manufacturer or distributor you should be able to get better prices than buying through retail. Also, take into consideration delivery costs, timeframes and location of the company you are buying from.
