Call now to make a reservation:  (831) 600-7230.  We also rent surfboards and body boards.  


Covewater has California's largest and most diverse SUP rental fleet.  Whether you're a first time paddler or a SUP veteran, we'll pair you with the perfect board for your needs to make sure you have a great time on the water.  No one can match our selection, expertise or personal care. Our fleet is comprised of quality built, epoxy SUPs from the sport's leading manufacturers -- not low-end, foamy "softboards" boards like you'll get stuck with elsewhere.


You can quickly and easily drive away with the boards to wherever you like (we are just a few blocks from Cowell's Beach).  You don't need racks or anything!  We easily and safely put up to three boards on any car, everyday!  We've been doing this since 2010 without a single problem.  SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT RENTING SUPs FROM COVEWATER ON YELP.  We are proud to rank a full 5-stars from our customers, and are committed to making sure yours is the best possible SUP experience you could imagine.


Reservations are recommended for summer weekends, but not necessarily required, as we have tons of boards available to choose from.  To reserve a board, please call our shop during our business hours, so we can talk about which boards to reserve for you, and take your pre-payment by phone.  Our phone is (831) 600-7230.


If you are looking for the perfect board for you, at Covewater you can demo boards for free!  When you demo a board, you pay the normal rental fee - however, if you end up buying a board, you can apply up to $120 of your rental fees to the cost of the board.  So your demos end up being free!  No one else offers this invaluable option.  Would you buy a car without test driving it?  Why would you buy a $1,000+ paddleboard without paddling it?  Now you don't have to! 

The Paddleboard Demo Card!

Our Paddleboard Demo Card is good for five discounted stand-up paddleboard rentals whenever you like.  The card is $120, (value $175) so each all-day rental is just $24!  Best of all, the cost of the card is rebated if you choose to purchase a new board!  Absolutely the *best* way to try several boards before you buy.  Good for one person per day and does not expire.  Not for use with groups - only for individuals. $120 rebate good on NEW (not used) board purchase.  Thank you.

Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your pre-paid board rental reservation, you must do so no later than 4:30 PM the day before your rental. Cancellations are subject to just a $5 cancellation fee to cover credit card charges we've incurred. Thank you for understanding.

Additional Info

Multiple-day rentals are available.  Wetsuits generally are not required for stand-up paddling, however if you wish to use one, we have a fleet of new full-suits and spring-suits for rent at just $7 per suit for the day.  Want to go paddle in the morning before we open? You are welcome to pick up the board the day before after 3:00 PM and we'll charge for only the following day's rental.
