Vacations are a time for relaxation and an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle that everyone deals with. However, for some, a vacation is the perfect time to try something new and exciting, and to get adventurous!

You don’t need to travel to a remote tropical destination to have a good time when everything you need can be found along the Atlantic coast. The first step in planning your exciting vacation is to start with amazing accommodations, like the Rehoboth Beach vacation rentals we have to offer! Once you have booked your home-away-from-home, you can start looking at all the exciting things Rehoboth beach has to offer!

Some of the many things to do in Rehoboth Bay include biking, surfing, and paddleboarding. Whether you are looking to take lessons or to go out and explore the waterways in Rehoboth, we have all the information you could possibly need. 

Looking to Rent a Paddleboard in Rehoboth?

Your first stop on your paddleboard adventure should be DelMarVa Board Sport Adventures, located in Dewey Beach. They not only offer paddleboard rentals, but they also offer guided tours and lessons for those wishing to learn the basics of paddleboarding before heading out on their own excursions! Their costs are quite competitive, and they offer a variety of other Rehoboth activities including paddleboard yoga, windsurfing, kayaking, and even summer camps. 

East of Maui is another surf shop that will be able to help you out with all of your adventures during your stay in Rehoboth Beach. They offer some of the same excursions as DelMarVa, but they also have other activities as well. If you’re looking for surfing, kiteboarding, or even bodyboarding, they can help you out with lessons and equipment rentals. East of Maui also offers a variety of apparel items so that you can showcase your adventures when you return to your daily grind. 

Tips for Paddleboarding

If you are thinking about renting a paddleboard and going out without any lessons, then we have a few pointers that you may want to consider. The first thing is to ensure that you use a leash and that your rental comes with one. Because you are on the water and conditions are ever-changing, you can easily tip off the board and lose it with a change in current or wind direction. By tethering yourself to the board, you ensure that it is always with you. Another tip is to ensure that you have the right gear for enjoyment and safety. Your rental provider should be able to help you chose a paddleboard that is the right thickness for your weight to ensure maximum safety.

Plan Your Visit

The Rehoboth Beach area has something to offer for the whole family. Look into booking one of our amazing dog friendly vacation rentals to plan your perfect getaway!

Make sure, before you venture out, that you check the wind direction. Think of your body as a sail while standing on your board. If the wind is too strong, then we suggest laying down flat on your board and paddling to shore with your arms. As a beginner, avoid waves, or at the very least, only go for waves that you can handle. Finally, paddleboard in groups. You will have a lot more fun, and there is always safety in numbers. While you will be tethered to your board, if you fall in the water and require assistance, it is always better to have someone with you to help out.
