Top Tips for Stand-Up Paddle Boarding in Big Bear Lake


Big Bear is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. One of the most popular ways to enjoy and explore this slice of Southern California paradise while stand-up paddle boarding – or “SUP,” for short.

With 22 miles of shoreline, Big Bear Lake is a fantastic spot to try this sport, because of the smooth, calm water, and hidden inlets and coves tucked away from passing boats.

Ready to try this popular sport this summer while staying in one of our amazing Big Bear Getaway vacation rentals? Check out our top tips before you hit the water:


Best Marina Locations for Renting SUP Boards/Equipment.

You won’t have to travel too far along Big Bear Lake to find a place to rent equipment, take lessons, or a marina to paddle off from. Some of the lake’s marinas offering packages and specials for paddleboarding are Big Bear Marina, Captain John’s Marina, Holloway’s Marina, and Pleasure Point Marina.


Other Local SUP Outfitters

Local outfitters Getboards and Paddles and Pedals also provide paddleboard rentals. Their friendly and knowledgeable crew will get you set up for a memorable day out on the water!


Pup-friendly SUP!

Have a furry friend that wants to join in on the fun? Getboards lets your pup ride with you anywhere on the lake at no extra cost! For peace of mind, they also rent dog life jackets – we would not paddle without them! Prices for renting stand-up paddleboards can range from as low as $25 for a one-hour session, or up to $85 for a full day.
