UP Gulf Coast has been voted BEST of the Island 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019! We love what we do and want to spread our love of the Galveston Gulf Coast!
SUP Gulf Coast wants to introduce you to the world’s fastest growing sport, stand up paddle boarding. We currently offer stand up paddle board rentals and surf board rentals in Galveston at two locations a well as mobile delivery! Millions of people have taken up the sport as it provides a great opportunity to enjoy the water, get a great workout and relax all at the same time. No experience is required to rent and operate a paddle board. We have paddle boards that will accommodate all levels from beginners looking for a relaxing stroll on a bayou to the avid paddle border looking to catch some waves on the coast. We provide a brief but thorough instruction with each rental.
SUP Gulf Coast understands it can sometimes be intimidating trying something new. We are located right on the beach and also offer mobile deliveries. We will walk through everything you need to know and if at all possible, get out there with you. We’ve got you covered. Lessons are also available for more guaranteed one on one instruction. Our goal is to get you paddling in a safe and fun environment.
Our paddle boards are designed to be used in flat water and in surf. Which works well with Galveston’s ever changing beach conditions. No day is ever the same but you can use your paddle board every day.
Paddle boarding/Paddle surfing is perfect for Galveston Island surfers as it gives the extra push needed when waves are small and slow. Paddle surfing makes catching waves a bit easier. You will see many of the locals out daily with their paddle boards on the seawall.
