About Us

Thank you for visiting Paddleboard Orlando! On behalf of Uncle Ned, BooBoo and the rest of the PBO team we thank you for the interest and look forward to seeing you. Below you can find a little bit more about what we do and how to take part!

We offer paddleboard rentals out of our store (115 North Orlando Ave Suite 109, Winter Park, FL) lessons on the Winter Park Chain, Butler Chain, Conway Chain and any waterfront location of your choice, and a wide variety of unique adventure tours.  We also operate the Paddleboard Orlando Pro Shop which has over 60 new and used boards, paddles, clothing, and stand up paddle board accessories. Growing up in the Orlando area PBO’s team can show you the most beautiful water Central Florida has to offer. All our tours, rentals, and classes are centered around having a great time and traveling to unique locations.

We now have two amazing paddle board rental locations open 7 days a week. The first is on the beautiful, spring fed and alligator free Lake Killarney in the heart of historic Winter Park (address above). For a taste of “Old Florida” head down to our River Outpost at Wekiva Island (1014 Miami Springs Drive, Longwood, FL) and paddle board to the crystal clear Wekiva Springs!

With a combined 35 years in the watersports and hospitality industries you can be sure your experience will be professional, safe and most importantly loads of fun. Stand Up Paddleboarding is our passion and we look forward to sharing it with you!
