More about SUP Board hire

Hire a SUP in Knysna and head off to explore the pristine Knysna Lagoon on your own schedule. Slowly make your way on the lagoon and take the time to admire the natural beauty. Stop at the beach and catch some sunshine along the way.

SUP boarding is great fun for the whole family, provided you can swim! For first-timers, don't be nervous - the SUPs are stable and easy to manoeuvre, and you're guaranteed to create some fun, adventurous memories.

SUP rental rates are based on a ‘per SUP, per hour basis’. No previous SUP boarding experience is necessary. Remember to apply sunblock before heading out, and a sunhat is a must. Life jackets and paddles are provided. Bringing along your phone or camera is not advised.

Was such a lovely experience for me and my kids! Was a good day, sunny and little wind. Something new and adventurous. Service was excellent and equipment well maintained, clean and easy to learn. Thanks for being there all the time!
