At Paddleworks we are stoking you out on the highest quality stand up paddle board instruction and rentals. We provide the best possible SUP experience on the water. Every staff member on our team is a certified Paddleboard Instructor, CPR & First Aid. We are hustle, hustle, hustling!!!

Paddleworks has arrived in South West Florida! We are currently setting up in the Fort Myers area to service the barrier islands.

Theses are some outstanding paddling locations, as the water is warm, calm, and features amazing marine wildlife.
