You could say that Alex Linnell loves standup paddleboarding. So much, that in 2011 he broke world records as the first person to paddle the length of the Mississippi River—also the longest standup paddleboarding journey on record at the time. His dedication to the sport extends to the way he runs his standup-paddleboarding rentals and tours, too. He wants everyone who comes into his shop to fall in love with the sport, as he has, and he makes it easy. Guests can rent paddleboards for half- or full-day turns.
