Getboards was extremely straightforward for renting Kayaks. We were able to walk over from our hotel to rent a tandem kayak for a couple hours. All workers were extremely nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend checking out Getboards for lake rentals.

Thanks for sharing! Yes the wind can be a problem in any kayak and when there is still snow on the mountains in early season, kayaking can be super cold this time of year. If you ever come back to kayak in big bear, try...More
