Know Before You Go
*All rentals come with a PFD (Personal Flotation Device). By law, all boaters must have a coast guard approved PFD on board. If you are under the age of 13, you are required to wear it at all times. We provide child and youth PFDs. If you have your own, please bring it for a more comfortable fit. PFD must be Type II, III, or V. If using a Type V PFD that requires inflation, you must be wearing it at all times.
*Children under 10 years of age are not permitted to be on any watercraft without an adult on board with them. Depending on weight, arrangements can be made on-site for a child to ride with an adult on a SUP board, kayak, or canoe.
*Must be 5 years or older to use any High Country rental equipment.
*When renting from the Paddle Shack, an adult to child ratio of no less than one adult (18 years of age or older) for every four children under the age or 13 is required.
*Glass containers are not permitted in or around the Morgan Falls or the Chattahoochee River.
*You assume total responsibility of High Country’s equipment during your rental period. Damage to equipment will result in a fee.
*Want to try different models in the same day and receive paddling instructions from HC Certified guides? Sign up for one of our weekly SUP Demos!
