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!

We have a wide selection of one and two person sit-on plastic Kayaks, Stand Up Paddle boards, two Mega SUPs (eight person paddle board), wetsuits hire and body boards for you to chose from.

Or why not sit back and relax while others are messing about on the water – our beach hire shop has a huge selection of British made four pole wind breaks and classic reclining deckchairs.

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 via phone or on the beach. On most days we have enough equipment for customers to turn up and hire equipment however, during peak season we strongly recommend avoiding disappointment by booking in advance using our online booking system.

We Believe in Quality

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.

Stand Up Paddleboard Hire

SUP, or stand up paddle board, 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 Centre works on regular time intervals and has a huge selection of equipment allowing customers, on most occasions, to just turn up and take what’s at the next available time slot. During busy periods, particularly during peak season (school holidays) we strongly recommend that you book in advance – this is most easily achieved by booking what you would like to use and when online. Alternatively, bookings can be made over the phone or simply pop down and say hello if you’re able to.

Please be patient though, during peak times it can be difficult to answer the phone while we are dealing with customers on the beach.

If you would like something more than just hire and would either like to explore the bay, learn how to stand up easier and paddle further then go to our  SUP Lessons or Tours section where you can book SUP, Kayak and Hawaiian Canoe activities.

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 regular time intervals and has a huge selection of equipment allowing customers, on most occasions, to just turn up and take out equipment at the next available time slot. During busy periods, particularly during peak season (school holidays), we strongly recommend that you book in advance – this is most easily achieved by booking what you would like to use and, when online.
