Take your rental boards to your favorite spot on Lake Norman or Mountain Island Lake, on your beach vacation, or wherever you want. Our sturdy inflatable paddle boards will fit in the trunk of any car (no rack required) or even on an airplane.
Renting a house on Lake Norman? Just don’t feel like driving? For your convenience, we’ll bring the paddle boards to you–anywhere on the lake in Cornelius, Davidson, and Mooresville. May deliver further for extra charge; call us to discuss.
We love what we do! Paddle boarding isn’t just our business; it’s our way of life. We’ve been in the watersports rental business since 2008 and have served thousands of happy Lake Norman residents and vacationers. We focus on stand up paddleboard (SUP) rentals and sales because paddle boarding is an activity that truly anyone can enjoy–kids, young adults, parents, and grandparents! You can get an amazing workout with friends or just take a leisurely paddle, have an on-water picnic, and enjoy the amazing sights! We don’t require a lesson beforehand, but we’ll give you everything you need–including an instructional walk-through (if you need it), life jackets, dry bags, waterproof Bluetooth speakers, maps, and more.
What’s Up Watersports offers affordable prices, superior customer service, eye-catching paddle boards, and modern technology for a one-of-a-kind paddle board rental experience. You can check real-time availability and book rentals 24/7 on our website. If you feel more comfortable calling, we are available by phone from sunrise to sunset at 704-931-8SUP (8787). All reservations must be made in advance! We send you all the details you need ahead of time, so you can just show up and paddle!
We offer two paddle boarding launch locations–one on Lake Norman and one on Lake Wylie!
Our Lake Norman launch location offers access to 520 miles of shoreline with some amazing homes and other sights to see! This location offers quick access to a protected cove for beginning paddleboarders and also quick access to the main channel for more advanced paddleboarders seeking a true on-water adventure.
***Our NEW Lake Wylie launch location is our closest launch location to Uptown/South Charlotte and offers access to 325 miles of shoreline. We recommend this location for beginning paddlers and more advanced paddleboarders looking for more of a “river-like” paddle.
Our unique “Grab & Go” service allows you to paddleboard anywhere you want! Our high-quality, amazingly sturdy inflatable paddle boards roll up to the size of a small duffel-bag–thus fitting in any size car and even on a plane. So, grab a paddle board and take it to your favorite spot on Lake Norman, or take it on your next beach vacation!
We also offer “night” rentals, where we give you a paddle that doubles as a high-powered flashlight–allowing you to experience your out-of-water and in-water surroundings like never before!
