Escape • Relax • Unwind
We believe the prescription for a busy life is a fun day on the water.
Do any of these
sound like you?
Stressed to meet deadlines at work
Feeling the pressure to get away but want to stay local
Always on someone else’s time clock
You’re stuck in the same old routine
You want freedom to go where you want when you want
With online booking, you won't be standing in a line to reserve your SUP.
We believe your time is better spent on the water.
An adventure in your backyard.
Enjoy more in Kentucky than bourbon and horse racing (we love those too). Did you know Kentucky has more shoreline than the state of Michigan? It’s true.
Un-stress your life
There's nothing more relaxing than a day on the water. Sprinkle in a couple waterfalls and you've got heaven.
On your terms, on your schedule
Simple, stress free fun on the water
We are Kentucky’s only concierge paddleboard rental company and we got our start in outdoor recreation in 2005, so we know what we’re doing. Also, our fearless leader has her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, which has nothing to do with paddleboarding, but you know we’re not dummies.
There are many demands for your time, your focus, and your best work. It's time to escape and discover Kentucky by Paddle and, perhaps, rediscover you, too.
Is paddle boarding right for me?
If you’ve never been paddleboarding, it can be intimidating. Here’s some frequently asked questions that might give you the courage to try something new!
How does a rental work?Clients make a reservation online for a specified number of days. KBP will drop off your equipment to your specified location between 8am and 10am within 25 miles of Lexington and pick up between 8am-10am at the same location at the end of your reservation. Most KBP clients choose to drop off and pick up at their home. You then have the freedom to choose your own waterway.
What are the pricing options?There are two single SUP packages, the Leisure Package and the Sport Package. We also offer the Partner SUP package that comes with one each of a Leisure Package and Sport Package. Click on Reserve Now to check pricing on your dates. Minimum reservation is 3 days, for special requests and custom quotes, contact us!
What comes in the rental?There are two rental packages for your paddling pleasure. The Leisure Package comes with the inflatable paddleboard, paddle, kayak conversion kit with kayak paddle, a dry bag, two carabiners, a US Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (PFD), and both a handheld pump and electric pump. The hand-help pump is recommended for those locations where inflating the paddleboard is far from a vehicle. The electric pump is recommended for those that want to inflate at their vehicle and do not mind carrying the paddleboard to the water. You will need a 12 V outlet in your vehicle to operate the electric pump (we used to call these a cigarette lighter outlet). The Sport Package is for clients who are enthusiastic about the purity of the sport and need only the inflatable board, paddle, PFD, and handheld pump.
I have never done SUP before, is a KBP weekend rental right for me?SUP rentals with KBP can be incredibly freeing as you get to choose which beautiful Kentucky waterway to paddle and when. SUP can also be dangerous and there are severe risks associated with paddling. Clients should know their fitness level before trying a new sport and know how to handle the equipment before taking on this responsibility. Additionally, KBP recommends paddling in groups no less than three individuals.
