Post-Hurricane: Rebuilt and Ready for 2018!

The damage done to Rincon by Hurricane Maria was very severe. However, there is one simple truth: you can’t stop the awesome! After a lot of hard work to stabilize Rincon and get everything accessible again, everyone could focus getting Rincon ready for the coming season. Much of the economy in Rincon and Puerto Rico in general depends heavily on Tourism. People from all over the world love escaping to this beautiful island to enjoy a unique tranquility and peaceful ambiance, as well as take advantage of the natural thrills out in the ocean. Rincon really is an awesome place and no Hurricane can rob it of its beauty for long. After removal of fallen trees and debris, and then more trees and debris, and then a few more trees and debris several Rincon businesses could start rebuilding again. Rincon Paddleboards was left with a fairly daunting challenge – the beach was gone. For a business setup and run from the shoreline of the beach, you can see how this would be a large obstacle. However, if you know Damanio and Chikako (owners of Rincon Paddleboards) then you understand that this wasn’t going to stop them. With enough hard work and ingenuity just about anything is possible. They rebuilt the beach. Literally, they put the sand back up by the shoreline, the nearby coastal areas, replanted and replaced trees that had fallen, reinforced the barren rootballs of surviving trees that somehow still stood upright, and took advantage of the piles of dirt/mud left from nearby river flooding in the field of the premises and replaced what Maria washed away near the ocean. This was a lot of work and it all started with shovels and wheel barrows until heavy machinery became available again. After a lot of hard work, soon the island started to grow back stronger and continued to naturally add to the beach. New tides, currents, and swells would help add sand and leave it sticking to the new chunk of beach at Rincon Paddleboards. The reefs are still alive and the fish continue to thrive in the marine reserve of Tres Palmas. In many areas nature has sprouted back so heavily that it’s hard to tell anything ever happened! Basically, Rincon Paddleboards is back and ready for business! We are rebuilt and ready for 2018! Come on down, give our economy a much needed boost, and have the time of your life enjoying our SUP Tours, Night tours, and Surf Lessons. We’re ready for you!

What a Great Season!

This season I have had the pleasure of working with an amazing group of lifeguards who come from all over the states and bring their own unique safety and life experiences to Rincon Paddleboards.

I am thankful for the trained and watchful eyes of these young professionals who not only look over our own customers, but the beach goers too. Their knowledge and expertise as trained watermen make me feel at ease when dealing with our growing clientele.

Together we help educate visitors on the beach about water safety to ensure that everybody, young or old, can enjoy the ocean with our same level of respect, confidence and love. The love for the sea is what brings us together as lifeguards, watermen, and beach goers.

They say, ‘once a lifeguard, always a lifeguard!’ Those that have never been a lifeguard will agree, the love for the ocean is what bonds us together in brotherhood.

This season we also had the privilege of trying a new sport – SUP Fitness! Katie, who is certified in SUP Fitness and owns her own business in Georgia, spent the season with us and taught several classes to the locals and tourists.
We had a great time, a great workout and learned a new way to SUP! Now not only can you do standup paddle boarding and paddle board surfing but you can change things up with SUP fitness too!

We’ve had a wonderful season so far and want to thank you all for your support!

Surf Lessons with Rincon Paddle Boards

You might think that Rincon Paddle Boards is all about paddle boarding, but did you know we provide surf lessons too?! It just might be your most favorite part of your trip to our beautiful island!

Thirteen years ago I came to Rincon from New York City and took surf lessons like many do that visit our surf destination town of Rincon. I wasn’t able to catch very many waves that first time, but I absolutely fell in love with the lifestyle!

School Trip Meets Rincon Paddle Boards!

When the private school teacher approached me with this idea, I was thrilled but also nervous! But, now that I’ve had the opportunity to see the smiles on these students’ faces and the joy they had on the beach the day they visited – I now know that this is a great activity that Rincon Paddle Boards can provide! In the past we have also provided yoga retreat groups and it’s always been a great turn out! These beach activities are awesome and we plan to continue them.

 

We started the day with a beach clean-up activity then discussed ocean safety and then of course we enjoyed the rest of the day with paddle boarding, snorkeling and kayaking in our beautiful Rincon Marina. By the end of the day the students didn’t want to get out of the water!

 

I found it very interesting that activities and school trips like this are very rare in Puerto Rico, which is sad because we have so many beautiful beaches to learn about and enjoy. Come enjoy a day with us and you’ll have an amazing memorable day!

 

Please contact us about large groups and water activities.

Snorkeling at the Rincon Marina

While many tourists snorkel at Steps Beach, enjoying the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, you won’t want to miss out on the Rincon Marina during your time in our surf town. Not only does the marina have a great swim beach and great waters for paddle boarding, it’s also a great place to snorkel.

Recently, Chikako, Rachel and a few of their friends took the morning off to snorkel at the marina and to photograph the beautiful coral, fish and of course, for a little fun too. As you can see from their photos, it is a majestic place to explore!

As with any snorkeling adventure, be sure to have the proper gear, snorkel with another person and go when the conditions are optimal and the waves aren’t dangerous. Next time you stop by the marina take the opportunity to check out the beautiful sea life – you just might discover a sea turtle, manatee and other exciting animals.

When you request a paddle board delivery, be sure to ask us about our snorkel gear rentals.

Enjoy your visit!Snorkeling Collage
