       Stand up Paddelboarding (SUP) is a unique hybrid of kayaking and surfing. SUP has exploded in the past few years as the fastest growing water sport in the world. Great Lakes Surf Shop is incredibly grateful to be in Michigan! We are in one of the most absolutely perfect places to enjoy all the benefits of this unique sport. SUP is great for kids, adults of all ages, fitness seekers, elite athletes and even our beloved pets!

       There are several different ways to enjoy this sport; the reason for the diversity of interest. Some enjoy the cross training, yoga, and other physical benefits. SUP is a very low impact, full body workout while having fun and even relaxing. More and more SUP races are happening across the country and Michigan is no exception. Zen seekers are flocking to rivers and fishermen are finding it to be a great way to get off the shoreline. SUP is another form of surfing and an easier way to catch waves...and yes we have waves in Michigan. What ever the reason, SUP will get you on the water without the ongoing expense of equipment and fuel.


We offer a 2 hr. Stand Up Paddleboard lesson with rental for $65 and we rent 

Stand up Paddleboards for $20 and hour or $65 for the day. Pick up at shop only.
