About A Chat with Drive Fitness & Performance
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We are an original Stand-Up Paddle Board rental company in the Sarasota/Manatee area and our goal is to provide personalized "Experience Packages" so each guest can enjoy our beautiful beaches and waterways in comfort and style. We pride ourselves on safety, professionalism, and customer service as well as working with other small businesses to provide our guests with the best "Local" experience in town.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? SUP | Stand Up Paddle Boarding has taken off as one of the most fun and popular sports on the water. Anyone can get out and participate in one of our SUP Experience Packages! We will take our premium boards and accessories and meet you at the agreed upon location, and give you 15 minutes of paddling basics by a Paddlefit Pro Instructor so you look like you know what you're doing out on the water!
What do you love most about your job? Know the Difference: "Most Rental companies offer the same boards but with different names. They are all basically giant, unstable, surfboards. BOTE boards 'Stand Apart' from the competition and are engineered to be Stand Up Paddle Boards, meaning they are lighter, faster, and more stable.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? We do not rent the cheap, dented, moldy, warped, poorly designed paddle boards that you typically see, nor will we make you carry the big stinky orange life jackets like the competition. We provide you with an inflatable PFD, as well as a name-brand, lightweight, premium BOTE paddle board, a BOTE AXE carbon fiber adjustable paddle, a SUP anchor, a Yeti or Kula Cooler with Ice, a waterproof cell phone case, and all the amenities you’ll need to create an experience you will never forget.
