Such a great place

With an easy paddle board rental near me search on Google, we found Riverbound Sports to help us with our first time standup paddleboarding. It was super easy and we had such a good time. Teri was so helpful she taught us how to put the boards on the car and provided us with instructions on how to paddle.

We will definitely be back!

Best Rentals in the Valley!

Abby and the crew are the amazing! We have rented from Riverbound multiple times and wouldn’t go anywhere else. We have always had a great experience and hands-down, their inflatable standup paddleboards are the best boards on the Salt River. 

 We love you guys!

Great experience

We were visiting Phoenix in November and wanted to take advantage of the great weather to rent a canoe or kayak. 

Riverbound Sports was open and happy to help. With our rental car, we decided on renting a 2 person inflatable kayak and loved it. Thank you for the great experience.

We’ll be back next year
