SAN DIEGO, California - For the first time ever customers across the US can rent a standup paddle board or kayak online and have it delivered to their doorstep for a convenient, affordable experience on the water. This program was developed by SUPrents, a web service that rents SUP’s and kayaks and ships them directly to customers anywhere in the US. Customers from beginners to advanced can have the kayak or SUP package delivered to their door starting at $199/week. The kayak package includes Oru’s innovative Bay Kayak, a paddle, assembly instructions, and a return shipping label. The standup paddle board package includes a lightweight portable inflatable standup paddle board, paddle, pump, inflation instructions and a return shipping label.
The process is easy: customers simply go online to www.SUPrents.com, select the gear, enter the dates of their trip, and provide a shipping address. The gear will arrive on the selected date; after the rental ends customers place the gear back in the original box, attach the prepaid shipping label and place it back on the porch for UPS pickup. Shipping to and from the customer is free.
For SUPrents this is a huge step toward making the water more accessible and inclusive. The company was founded to serve people who want to participate more but are challenged by the sky-high costs, storage, and common underutilization of paddle boards and kayak ownership. SUPrents also aims to combat the intimidation factor of trying something for the first time without the right gear.
By using technology and the national infrastructure of UPS to deliver experiences and convenience to people all over the US, SUPrents is seeking to upend the traditional way of renting and trying standup paddle boarding and kayaking. The company is keenly aware of the growing millennial generation that is spending more time and money seeking live experiences; this concept gives the perfect opportunity to address those needs directly and jives with the companies tagline “Rent the gear, own the experience.”
SUPrents is a web service that makes it convenient, easy, and affordable to get on the water by using technology to rent gear and have an adventure. The company was founded in 2015 and pioneered a through-the-mail rental program for inflatable standup paddle boards. Since its founding, SUPrents has worked with partners such as Isle Surf and Sup, Hydrus Boardtech, Tahoe Luxury Properties, and others to make it easier than ever to enjoy outdoor experiences without the burden of owning gear.
