    Great rental/booking experience that was convenient and easy!

    Excellent booking and rental experience! Online booking was seamless! There were no "hiccups" of any kind. Trip shock recommends calling the rental/service providers ahead of time to make sure everything is set up correctly on their end .. but I didn't even do that and everything still went smoothly. GUSU paddle boarding provided great, friendly service and excellent equipment and quite honestly the perfect venue for beginner SUPers (myself and 12y/o son) which was Destin bay. The bay provided us with calm waters so getting our "sea legs" and balance came pretty quickly. The 1 hour rental allowed us to explore the bay and one of the small channels off the bay .. Got to even watch one of the pirate boat pass right by us! Definitely will rent again through tripshock/GUSU unless I have my own... read more

    Fun on the water

    An outstanding day out on the Destin harbor with the paddleboard we rented. Service was excellent and the employees had us out on the water in no time. Best deal on a paddle board on Destin. You won't be disappointed.

    Pretty fun experience!

    We had a lot of fun. Just hated we had to stay in the harbor which was pretty gross.

    Fun, good work out!

    The beach you enter the water with the paddle board is in a small local park very close to the rental shop.The rental shop drove the boards over for us and carried them to the shore. It was fun and a good work out! The only thing I would have liked was to be able to paddle over to crab island but it was too far for us. I would have liked to have entered the water near crab island on the other side of the bay. But it was still a good place to paddle. The boards were very nice.

    Excellent service

    The guys are very professional and attentive. My friend and I got there when it was about to rain. The guys were ready with the weather radar up, to make sure when it would be safe to go and paddle. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Destin. The representative from TripShock on the phone was also extremely nice, and accommodating.
