Chicago SUP is excited to announce a first-of-its-kind concept we like to call Commuter Paddles!

Think of it as Divvy Bike meets SUP, these “directional paddles” allow paddlers to pick up a board at one location, then drop it off at another, between our North Avenue Beach and Ohio Street Beach locations! Imagine cruising past morning rush hour traffic at a standstill on Lake Shore Drive, while you’re not only starting your day with a relaxing paddle but actually making your “commute” to work!

Both locations feature changing and rinse stations, as well as nearby Divvy bike stations. Definitely the most unique way to commute in Summertime Chi! We also have dry bags available for rent (or bring your own) to keep that work suit dry while you start the day in your bathing suit ;)

Commuter Paddles take place daily between 7a-10a, conditions permitting, and are offered at no additional cost to our regular rentals. All bookings beginning between 7a-9a launching at North Ave. or Ohio St. are eligible for Commuter Paddles, conditions permitting, no additional booking required.
