Cool off in the water and see the world from a new perspective with a stand-up paddleboard rental. Stand up paddleboards or “SUPs” are like a large surfboard designed for moving through flat water. Navigating through open water on a SUP requires core strength and balance and offers a great workout in addition to being a lot of fun. While paddleboarding, most people stand or kneel on their boards, affording different views of the surrounding landscape than if you’re sitting close to the water in a kayak.
REI offers paddleboard rentals at two boathouses situated on the shore on Lake Washington in Bellevue, just east of Seattle.
