Are there any requirements I need to meet prior to renting equipment?
You must have a valid state-issued picture ID to be held as a security deposit. You must have the ability to enter and exit the craft independently or with the assistance of a companion. You must have the ability to remain seated and balanced, and have the ability to maneuver the craft through water and return it safely. If your craft capsizes, you must have the independent ability to get out from underneath the craft. Last but not least, YOU MUST ALWAYS WEAR A PFD (type III)!
Do you rent to minors (under 18)?
Yes, we do! We do need a parent/guardian to sign the Rental Agreement and Waiver & Release of Liability forms. If signing parent/legal guardian cannot sign in front of us, we will also need a copy of their ID.
May I rent the equipment for use at other locations other than White Rock Lake?
No. All equipment being rented will need to launch from and be returned to our location on White Rock Lake.
Do you sell kayaks?
No... but we do sell Stand Up Paddleboards! Please contact us.
I notice that you use a smart phone device to take credit card transactions. Is my information safe?
Yes, your information is safe. We use Square's mobile credit card processing application. Your credit card information is transmitted securely and is NOT stored on our devices. Still unsure, just pay us in cash. We accept those too! Sorry, no checks.
How late in the season will you be open till, and when will you reopen?
For sure, we'll stay open through the end of October, weather permitting. If it stays nice out in November, we'll stay open as long as possible, so that the great people of Dallas and Stillwater can enjoy the lake. When will we reopen? That depends on the groundhog. We're targeting March 1st though. And if there are some warm winter days, we'll bust out with our tent, and you can come on by.
What should I wear for kayaking?
Well, kayaking is a wet sport, but it also depends on the weather. So dressed to get wet (boardshorts, swimsuits, rash guards.... take your pick), and if it's a colder and drizzly day wear layers. Light rain jackets that are designed to repel water is best.
Also, since it's an outdoor activity, sunblock is strongly advised. It's most effective to put it on 30-minutes prior to any activity, so put it on while your suiting up, and put it on generously!
May I bring my dog out on a canoe or kayak?
If you can manage your lovable creature and they weigh less than 50 lbs, and we won't have to play dog rescue, then, yes! You may absolutely bring your doggie. One per boat only please, and they can't be taken out on SUP. Note: WE DO NOT HAVE DOG PFDs.
