Hire Kayaks, Stand up Paddleboards, Mega SUP’s, Wetsuits, Deck chairs and Windbreaks.

Why have the hassle of bringing your own toys to the beach when you can use ours!

Our Hire Centre, located on Carbis Bay Beach, is a hassle free way of getting out on the water. We have something for everyone; one and two person sit-on plastic Kayaks, Stand Up Paddle boards, wetsuits and 8 person stand up paddle boards (Mega SUP). If staying dry is more your thing why not set up camp with our four pole wind breaks and take a load off reclining in our classic British made deckchairs. Our hire equipment is maintained to the highest standards and with our instructors on hand, you can always glean a few handy tips before you head out.

We pride ourselves in going the extra mile in providing quality lessons and equipment for our customers; we work closely with Starboard UK and renew our boards and paddles each year. Not only is Starboard the market leader in quality boards (you wont see our boards bending like bananas out on the water) Starboard was the first SUP manufacturer to sign up to the Parley programme leading the way with green technology and environmental stewardship. We are also an accredited AALS (Adventurous Activity Licensing Service) and ASI (Academy of Surfing Instructors) Centre – this ensures we have the best equipment, safety standards and procedures in place.

And if this were not enough Carbis Bay is blessed with soft white sand, clear blue water on the UK’s only privately owned Blue Flag beach – we have any number of ways for you to explore the treasures of the bay as an individual, a family or a group with our guided tours, safari’s, lessons and hire options. All bookings can be made online or directly on the beach using our electronic booking system.

Stand Up Paddleboard Hire

SUP, or in the Hawaiian language Hoe he’e nalu is an extremely social way to enjoy the ocean, unlike surfing, learning to stand up can take minutes and gives paddlers a unique perspective out on the water allowing you to see deep through the water and coves.

Our Hire Center works on a “Splash and Dash” policy, just turn up and take what’s available. If you would like something more definite have a look at our SUP Lessons or Tours section where you can book SUP activities or email us with your specific requirements.

Wetsuit Hire Carbis Bay St Ives Bay

Wetsuit Hire

We have a full range of child and adult wetsuits available for hire.

Don’t be part of the throw away generation, buying a suit for one holiday then hang it up never to be used again, do your bit for the environment and rent a suit for the short time you want to use it rather than, buy one and throw it away.

We don’t reserve wetsuits, they are rented on a first come first served basis.

Wetsuit 2hr    Half Day Full Day Day
Child £4 £6 £10
Adult £6 £8 £12
Kayak Cabis Bay from the Ocean Sports Centre

Kayak Hire

Kayaking is a great way to get out on the water. We use ‘sit-on’ plastic kayaks which are inherently very stable and carry no risk of entrapment – the placid waters of Carbis Bay are ideal for first-time paddlers and youngsters to enjoy a self-paced voyage of discovery around our coves.

We have both single and double kayaks available for hire, parents can take children out on double kayaks for a fun adventure on the water or you could bring a group of friends down for a fun day out.

Our Hire Centre works on a “Splash and Dash” policy, simply book your time slot and off you go. If you would like something more have a look at our guided tours section where you can book tours around the bay using our Kayaks, Hawaiian Canoe or even Stand Up Paddle board – call us or email us your specific requirements.
