Paddleboard & Kayak Rentals

Solstice Outdoors is your rental headquarters on the bay for stand up paddleboards and recreation kayaks. We are conveniently located on Highway 2, Lake Shore Drive, in Ashland on Lake Superior's Chequamegon Bay. Stop by the shop to check out our selection of recreation and race paddleboards for sale or grab a board or kayak for the day and experience what it's like to glide across the water.We have great boats for experiencing the calmer waters of Chequamegon Bay or any of our local inland lakes. Please note that we do not have sea kayaks which are recommended for the open waters of Lake Superior.

Our Location

We are located at the head of Chequamegon Bay in the Blue Wave building, literally feet from Lake Superior.  Our private sandy beach is a great venue for hosting larger groups. The shallow water is usually pretty warm (by Lake Superior standards) and Freehands Lakeside offers tasty lunch, snack, and beverage options on site.  We are also happy to transport our rental fleet to several more sheltered inland lakes for an additional fee.

Our Equipment

We rent what we paddle ourselves! We offer state of the art Surftech paddleboards. SUP specific PFDs, and high quality paddles. Our recreational kayak fleet is top notch as well. If we wouldn’t paddle it or sell it, we wouldn’t rent it.

All rentals are first come, first serve. If you want to be guaranteed a board or kayak, we recommend that you call ahead to reserve a boards or kayaks 715.682.3590 or email us at reservations@solsticeoutdoorstore.com Reservations are only confirmed when paid in full.
