Where to Rent Paddleboards in Jupiter
By Rachel Levy
Calling all paddleboarders! Whether you’re hoping to get on the inlet or are wanting to enjoy nature and paddle around a state park, there’s a little something for everyone within this round-up of paddleboard rental options. Get out there and catch some waves this weekend.
Blueline Surf & Paddle Co.
When it comes to getting creative on the water, there are few places offering more activities than Blueline Surf & Paddle Co. Beginners can hit the ground running by renting their own board or, if they want to take things a little slower, can sign up for an introductory class led by one of Blueline’s many experienced instructors. For intermediate paddlers, they offer a Racer’s Edition Paddle Practice Class that promises to get you moving more efficiently through the water. For those who like a little challenge, don’t miss out on the Friday and Saturday morning Yoga on Water classes. No matter what you choose, each option comes with the opportunity to rent a board (though the price varies depending on the activity) so it’s perfect for those who love to paddle but haven’t fully committed to purchasing their own board yet.
Price: $20 per hour for a board rental

From herons and turtles to a conglomeration of plant species, you’ll spend an afternoon among the many endangered and threatened plant and animal species that this park helps to protect. Choose your own adventure by going out with your own rental or by joining a nature tour led by the company. For the more adventurous paddlers, keep an eye out for High Point’s Native Paddle Yoga led by long-time instructor Todd Mclaughlin.
