We rented kayaks and a paddleboard from them this a few times this week. Prices are very reasonable and equipment was in good shape for rentals. The wind was crazy this week but not their fault.

We will be in Aruba on a cruise stop on Nov. 10 from 8 AM to 10 PM is there anyway we could book equipment for the afternoon. We have done Vela windsurf vacations before in Hawaii, Dominican republic, and Aruba, etc and like the equipment you have. How much do you charge per hour to rent equipment?

Found a posting on their website that says $50 for 2 hours, $80 for all day (gear has to be in by 5 PM). I agree, their JP gear is awesome!
