Austin Paddle Sports
From its waterfront location on Lady Bird Lake, Austin Paddle Sports dispenses sleek paddleboards upon which customers can explore local waterways. Drawing from an inventory of more than 70 boards from brands such as Yolo, Surftech, and Riviera, the shop’s staffers strive to match gear to customers’ purposes. Adventurers can mount their rented boards for independent jaunts, ranging from relaxed, canoe-like paddles to races against confused friends still standing on the beach. Newbies can opt for lessons at Lady Bird Lake and two additional outposts on Lake Austin and Quarry Lake, learning from instructors certified in CPR, first aid, and lifeguarding techniques.

About Austin Paddle Sports
For a city so far from the coast, Austin has a lot of waterways. Austin Paddle Sports takes advantage of this, setting up shop on Lady Bird Lake in Downtown Austin. There, they offer sales and rentals of stand-up paddleboards from the likes of Riviera Paddlesurf and Quickblade Paddles.
For those new to the quickly growing sport, Austin Paddle Sports uses entry-level stabilized, user-friendly equipment for beginners, and specialized displacement hull race boards for the experienced paddler. Staff is always available for a few tips to keep everyone upright and dry.
