Most paddlers participating in one of Undercurrents’ higher-level courses already have their own boat or board, and all the related gear. So we don’t include it in the price of those higher-level courses. But, if you are missing some or all of the gear, we can rent you our high-quality gear for the lesson’s duration.
Booking one of our higher-level courses does not automatically book rental gear. If you need any rental gear you need to book it separately with the store. Otherwise we can’t know you need it, so we won’t reserve it for you. And, if you need us to deliver the gear (optional extra), we won’t know to do so. Bottom line: please book rental gear with the store – well ahead of the course!
Some courses provide some of the gear (i.e. “Rescue gear is provided”). In those cases you do not need to make any arrangements – the rescue gear will arrive with the instructor.
All the required boats/boards and gear is provided in our entry-level courses.
Full Meal Deal: anything you need that we have, excluding delivery
Boat/Board Package: Boat (+ skirt) or board + premium paddle
Wetsuit Booties or Gloves
Bilge Pump + Paddle Float + Tow Line
Delivery by instructor to and from course
Please call the store well beforehand to make arrangements if you need to rent a boat or board, or any related gear. Unless you have selected the “Delivery by instructor” option, you need to pick up your rental before class and return it after class.
“One day Course” refers to the rental rate paid for the item or package, for a full-day, half-day or evening course. “Multi-day Course” refers to the rental rate paid for the item or package, for any course longer than one day.
If you chose “Delivery by instructor to and from course” then the instructor will deliver all the rented gear to the course, and return it to Undercurrents afterwards. For multi-day courses, the student will retain all paddlewear and small items overnight, while the instructor will will retain the boat/board and any large items overnight.
Full payment is due by Visa or MasterCard to reserve rental equipment. We will only rent to adults. A Release of Liability must be signed by the renter.
Rentals are for the duration of our lesson only.
Damaged or dirty gear will be repaired and/or cleaned and the charges added to your rental charges.
Reservations & Refunds
The refund policy for rentals is the same as the refund policy for the corresponding course. In general, there is a $10 fee if cancelled more than 7 days before the lesson starts (14 days for multi-day courses), and there are no refunds thereafter.
See our policies page for more details.
