The Weather and Sea Conditions are very important
You know that we hire kayaks, catamarans and paddleboards and a few other things. However the weather always plays an important part in water sport activities. Please ask or do you own research on the weather and sea conditions. We only hire Paddleboard from Long Beach due to tides, winds and seas swell making the joinery to the islands not as easy as it looks
