A new online paddleboard rental company has come to Ballard, and just in time for summer.
Stoke Harvester owner Shawn Jennings says it’s a fantastic sport to try if you like spending time on the water. “It’s incredibly versatile, and easy to pick up. Plus, it’s a great core workout,” Jennings said.
Jennings will rent out boards from a beach near the Shilshole Bay Beach Club and at Magnuson Park on Lake Washington. He said he’ll be teaching morning and evening classes, and will have the boards on the beach for rentals throughout the day. The company will donate 20 percent of proceeds from rentals to the Ballard Elks. And, if you’re already an Elks member, your rental is 50 percent off.
