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! Surfing for me isn’t only a sport I am passionate about, it’s has become a lifestyle change for me and has completely changed my life. I’m not only healthier, but I am happier because of surfing!

 

With our combined experience, Damiano and I will give you the best customer service, a memorable time and most importantly, lessons in skill and safety. So please don’t wait until next time you visit our island, if Rincon is on your itinerary …. LET’S GO SURFING!

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.

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!

Gilligan’s Island

For my birthday this year, Damiano and I, with a few friends, visited Guanica to check out Gilligan’s Island and what an awesome adventure it turned out to be!

Gilligan’s Island is very beautiful, a great place to swim, snorkel and even paddle! (More on that later). It’s a very small island about a mile off the coast of Guanica and a favorite spot for locals and tourists alike! The island is managed by Puerto Rico’s Department of Natural Resources and is part of the Biosphere Reserve of Guanica.

The area is largely covered by mangroves and some corral so it’s a great place to snorkel as the water is crystal clear. Be sure to bring a cooler for water, lunch and snacks and lots of bug spray!  There are picnic pavilions, BBQ pits, restrooms and changing areas but no shops or restaurants so come prepared.

To get here you can rent kayaks, take the ferry, hire someone to take you over or even paddle as the waters are pretty calm! Stay tuned on our Facebook page and blog as we are considering the idea of offering paddle board tours to this beautiful little paradise.

Paddle Boarding with the Manatee

Manatee 1

Damiano came across this manatee while out paddling.

As you pull your paddle through the calm waters off the coast of the Rincon Marina, you see  a large grey shape take form a few yards away. Your heart skips a few beats as your first thought is ‘shark’ and you start to panic. Before you reach full panic mode and wobble off your board and then subsequently flail around in the ocean, take a deep breath and look again. If you haven’t scared it away yet, you’ll see that most likely, it’s a manatee.

Of the many beautiful things you will see when paddle boarding along our coastline, the manatee or Antillean Manatee might just be the most impressive. The manatee is one of the most famous animals of the ocean waters of Puerto Rico and listed as a ‘vulnerable species’ by The International Union for Conservation of Nature.  The manatee has many nicknames – sea cow, sea pig and mermaid just to name a few.

The waters surrounding our island are prime breeding grounds for this ‘subspecies of the endangered West Indian Manatee.’ In areas that are protected from severe wave action, that provide some source of fresh water and harbor aquatic vegetation you are more likely to see a ‘sea cow.’

If you happen across one of these rather large ‘mermaids,’ remember to respect its space, enjoy this special moment and be thankful that the Caribbean Sea provides us with so many wonders.
