Want to buy a paddleboard? Rent one for an ocean paddle? Pick up some slick surf and paddling gear? The Shack has you covered for all things SUP. Wander over to their shop in beautiful Rye, and say hey! Then take those paddleboards you just bought or rented, walk across the street and get paddling right away from the beach at Pirate's Cove.

The back channels of Portsmouth Harbor are an amazing place to paddle, and there's no better way to see them than from a kayak or paddleboard!

The great folks at Exeter Recreation offer an abundance of programs for all ages and stages, all year round!
