Nashville Paddle Services


Lessons and rentals: We will teach you and your friends and family (both adults and kids with an adult) to stand-up paddle in a safe, encouraging environment. We have both group and one-on-one instruction. All of our teachers have years of experience on the water, are PaddleFit Level 2 and Level 3 certified, and have First Aid and CPR certifications. (See our bios for more info.) The 90-minute group paddles include safety and other basics on the land and plenty of time on the water.

The cost of group paddles includes instruction and use of paddle, quality paddleboard, PFD with safety whistle and leash.

Once you have participated in a Nashville Paddle group paddle, you’ll be given a discount code for future board rentals.

You must attend one of our group paddles 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. This is non-negotiable.

If we do not have your credit card on file (you do this by clicking “save my payment information” when booking online), a deposit is required for rentals.

Discounts are available for first responders.

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 and Instagram feeds are great ways to get involved with these efforts. Post your SUP photos there and tag us!

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. Check out our online store for new and used boards, paddles, PFDs, waterproof phone cases and dry bags, lights, floating sunglasses and other essential gear. We also have a community page for local used gear.

Yes! You are welcome to bring your dog when you SUP with us. Let us know in advance, so we can put you and Fido on the right board. We do not have a large number of canine PFDs in stock, so please have your pup bring his/her own.

Read the Rules of Stand Up Paddling


All lessons, classes, outings 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. This credit is good all season long. No shows and cancellations with less than 24 hours notice are not issued credit. (Note: After Labor Day 2015, rain checks issued will be good through the 2016 season.)

We donate a percentage of our proceeds to the Cumberland River Compact and other local advocates for the area’s watershed.

Prices are subject to change.
