2. What happens if the weather is unfavorable to paddle boarding on scheduled day?
If the weather or waves are unfavorable and Wet.Inc calls off the rental, the rental may be rescheduled for a later time/date.

You can do either! You are welcome to take the paddle board out on your own, or if you would like a guide or need some help getting started, we can do that too.
4. Do I need paddle boarding experience?
No, no experience is needed to rent from us or to paddle board. We cater to beginners and provide short lessons if requested. Our only requirement is that you know how to swim and that you have the ability to balance on the board.

Please do not plan for paddleboarding birthday parties for your kids unless their parents can sign both the waiver and rental agreement. Parents with other peoples’ children may not use the paddleboards, unless their parents fill out the appropriate paperwork. Remember that Paddleboards are a single occupancy craft, and should be used based on the manufacturer’s recommendations. They are not made for two people. All of these rules and regulations are for the safety of our customers, our staff, and for the longevity of our equipment.

Damage done to any equipment due to misuse or exceeding any limits explained will be at your expense.
