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!

Night SUP Tours from Rincon Paddle Boards using Bottom Mount LED Lights

Night Tours with Rincon Paddle Boards

Part 1

Recently, we purchased SUP LED light kits and tested them out with a group of friends. We had a awesome time and are very excited to be offering Night Tours along the Tres Palmas Marine Reserve in the very near future!

For this test tour we tried out the variety of colors that illuminate the water under the boards, the location for best views of the corral and fish and took some beautiful pictures. This was also a great opportunity to get feedback from friends, brainstorm ideas and practice this new tour so that it will be a memorable and enjoyable experience for our clients!

This is a great tour for people who already know how to paddle and for those who feel comfortable being in the open water at night. The LED lights give an entirely unique and new experience to those who love to SUP and view underwater sea life. The needlefish love the lights, you will enjoy beautiful views of sea fans, coral reefs and there are sure to be surprise visits by other sea life as well!

For our next test tour we want to try out snorkeling under the boards and hopefully, also offer this as part of a Night Tour package. Stay tuned for more updates about this exciting new tour we plan to make available to everyone soon!
