Nashville Paddle Services


Lessons and rentals: We will teach you and your friends and family (both adults and kids) to stand-up paddle in a safe, encouraging environment. We have both group and one-on-one lessons. All of our instructors have hours, months and years of experience on the water, some are PaddleFit Level 2 certified, and all have First Aid and CPR certifications. (See our bios for more information on us.) Your first lesson is 90 minutes.

The cost for lessons includes use of paddle, board, PFD and leash.

You must have a lesson (with us or someone else) before you rent if you have not stand-up paddled in the past. SUP is fairly easy to learn, but it is a water sport with inherent risks. We want you to stay safe so you can enjoy the sport. Please confirm your date and time with us via e-mail before you send payment.

Community-building: From moonlight paddles to field trips to race training to referrals for yoga and other SUP activities, we are committed to being ambassadors for this sport and stewards of stand-up paddling in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Help us build the SUP among kayakers, boaters, camp-goers and other paddlers. Our Facebook page is a great way to get involved with these efforts.

Consulting: Want to buy a board but don’t know which one? Need advice on board storage, paddles, roof racks, ding repair and more? We love SUP gear and we are happy to help. We don’t have a large inventory of new boards, but we can help you order new Glide or YOLO boards or sell you used boards. We offer private board storage, too. Check out links to our favorite gear.

Memberships to reserve boards: Coming soon

PaddleFit and race-training classes: Coming Soon

SUP Yoga: We recommend classes with Nashville Power Yoga

Gift certificates are available in any denomination.

When you make your reservation we will let you know where to meet for your lesson or rental. We cannot publish where we meet, due to Army Corps of Engineers regulations. Some of the launch spots we use have an additional parking/park use fee. We will inform you of this in advance where applicable.

All lessons, classes and rentals are subject to the approval of Mother Nature. If a rental or class is called off due to weather you will be given a credit for a future class or rental. No shows and cancellations with less than 24 hours notice are not issued credit.

We donate a percentage of our profits to the Cumberland River Compact, an advocate for the area’s watershed.
