Nashville's premier PAddling experience with a Pro Shop on the water !

"Great Experience!"

Paddle Up is outstanding- the owners and employees are super knowledgeable about all things paddling and are situated in the beautiful rock harbor marina off the Cumberland. I’ve been going to Neil and co. for about a year and I can only say good things. I store my board with them, I purchase gear through them, and I’ve talked to them a bunch about the ins-and-outs of paddling in Middle TN. In all regards, I’ve had a great experience. Whether you are a beginner or serious about paddling and looking for events, hit them up, you won’t regret it! Also, they have cute dogs.

"This is the place to go."

I bought a Bark board and a Quickblade paddle from Neil and Cindy yesterday. I had kept an older board in board storage with them; so, when I was ready for an upgrade, I definitely wanted to buy from them. They are good people.

Along with their collective expertise, they keep in close contact with guys like Jim Terrell, founder of QB Paddles, Joe Bark, founder of Bark Paddleboards, Jeramie Vaine, professional SUP paddler and Surftech rep. et. al. Along with Neil, I got feedback on my paddle from Jimmy Terrell. Jeramie helped with board selection. There isn't a better place to get the best paddle and board for your needs in this part of the country.

For people interested in trying SUP, this is the place to go. Neil has a great set-up for newer paddlers. PaddleUp is the ideal spot both to learn to paddle and to grow into the sport.

PADDLE UP FAMILY WE NEED YOUR HELP! As an Owner of Paddle Up for the last 6 plus years, we strive to create a fun, safe and environmentally conscious river experience to enjoy alongside our fellow boaters and anglers. The current TWRA proposed law has not properly taken into account the impact on small businesses across the state. Paddle Up Nashville is not part of the overcrowding which includes adding more trash in our waterways, however, we are being caught in the net that has been hastily thrown over ALL paddle craft operators in the state. IF this law were to pass the effect would add multiple fee expenses to all operators but not relieve the overcrowding on the waterways as this law suggest. By clicking the link in our bio and sending the attached, you are helping us to extend the conversation in order to propose a better plan that will meet the overcrowding needs while also taking into account small businesses, like ours, who are trying to make water sports accessible and fun for all. If you are a Tennessee Resident, please take just a moment to add your information to the link to send a letter to your Legislators. Thank you for your help. Neil

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! 🍂 • • • #paddleupnashville #livetheexperience #standuppaddle #fall #thanksvember #thankful #thanksgiving #tistheseason #paddleup #paddleuptn #nashville #cumberlandriver
