Located on the NH Seacoast, we offer a variety of SUP activities, including paddle board rentals and lessons, guided tours, and SUP Yoga.


New and used SUP packages are in stock at our Board Shop in Portsmouth, NH. We’re open daily, by-appointment for the winter with regular store hours resuming in May. We sell superior quality all-around boards, touring boards, prone boards and inflatable boards in all-inclusive packages, giving you the best SUP deals in NH. We’re confident you’ll find everything you need, and we’re here to help you every step of the way!


We started Portsmouth Paddle Co. in 2015 with eight paddle boards and a vision. We’d seen firsthand what wasn’t working at existing surf shops, and we were determined to create a new paddle boarding experience. One that offered more accommodating paddle boarding locations, better quality boards, superior customer service and kept the focus solely on paddle boarding.

Our mission as a small, family-run business, is to provide the knowledge, gear and skills you need to have the best stand-up paddle boarding experience. We hope that as you explore the waterways and beautiful NH Seacoast with us, you’ll #SeaThingsDifferently too.

Our paddle board store is where you’ll find new paddle board packages that include a board, carbon fiber paddle, leash and car straps! We are the exclusive North East retailer of VESL Paddle Boards — a family-run brand (like us) committed to creating high-quality, performance products. Simply head to our board shop site to learn more.

THE Place to Buy Boards on the Seacoast

Portsmouth Paddle Co. is the only place to buy paddle boards on the seacoast! I have purchased two boards through them and could not be happier. Owner Wes is extremely professional and knowledgeable, making the whole process so easy. Great customer service, experienced staff and the best boards around! Highly recommend PPC if you are looking for a paddleboard.

Great for Families

Our large family group had a great time paddle boarding with Portsmouth Paddle. The crew met us on time and got us set up on our boards. The equipment was excellent and the water was perfect. I highly recommend them for a fun paddle boarding adventure.

Amazing Introduction to Paddle Boarding

I am totally new to paddle boarding, so I booked a one hour lesson. The booking process was simple, and Wes and Dan were very responsive. I had the pleasure of learning to paddle with Brady in Newcastle. The equipment was top notch, but more importantly, Brady was a great instructor. He had me feeling confident and comfortable on the board in no time. Thanks for an amazing paddle boarding introduction!

Spectacular Sunset Paddle Tour

Our guide Ian was fantastic! He was very personable and very good with the outgoing tide and where to go. His instruction was spot on for our beginner and intermediate skill levels. He was quite knowledgeable about the area's history and shared some interesting details along the way. Our evening was spectacular with the sunset- surrounded by the quiet of nature, Bald Eagles and various wildlife. Can't wait to do Portsmouth Paddle Co again this summer and share our experience with our friends!

An A+ Experience for an A+ Company

I cannot recommend this place enough. Fabulous place to paddleboard. Easy to find. Quality boards, paddles and safety gear. The rate for two hours of awesome paddle boarding can’t be beat. The staff was extremely helpful and very communicative even rescheduling us when the winds weren’t cooperating. Overall an A+ experience for an A+ company.

Professional and Knowledgeable Guides

I've had multiple amazing experiences with Portsmouth Paddle Co! The sunset tours are fantastic and the guides are experienced, professional, and very knowledgeable of the area. Exceptional service and the best brand of paddle boards. I just purchased my own VESL paddle board from PPC because I loved the boards so much!

– Amelia N.
Can Accommodate All Skill Levels

Portsmouth Paddle Co. is the only way to do SUP tours and rentals. Wes and Ian took my husband and I out for a beginner’s guided tour. Both Wes and Ian were very professional, yet friendly. They made us both feel comfortable and accomplished. They were informed about the surrounding area, the tides, taught us helpful skills, gave us useful tips, used only top-of-the-line equipment, and we even saw the Wentworth Mansion, an old navy prison, and a Bald Eagle– crazy, right? I would highly recommend going on a guided tour whether you are a beginner, like me, or a seasoned paddleboarder; they can accommodate all skill levels.

Made it Easy to Get Out On the Water

I was very impressed with the service. We rented paddleboards for the afternoon and had a lot of fun exploring the area. The guides were friendly and made it really easy to get out on the water. Will definitely go again.
