PADL Arrives in Clay County, Florida

Outdoor enthusiasts, get ready to explore the waterways of Black Creek, the St. Johns River, and beyond as a new paddleboard sharing experience is now in the area. If you don’t own a paddleboard or maybe you’re traveling and couldn’t bring yours from home, or maybe you want to try something new – this new experience is for you!

Similar to bike-share programs, PADL allows boarders to locate a nearby station, rent and unlock a paddleboard directly from a smartphone. All safety gear is included with the rental of the board. When the board and gear are returned to the station, riders can find a summary of their trip available in the mobile app.

Whether you choose to do a bit of boarding and yoga or go on a fishing adventure in the nearby St. Johns River, PADL allows you to choose your own adventure with their easily accessible boards. To learn more about PADL and get started on your own paddling adventure, download the PADL mobile app for iOS and Android at
