RENTAL AGREEMENT
I accept the stand-up paddleboard and accessories in their present condition and I accept full responsibility for the care of the equipment I am renting. I agree to pay for any damage to the equipment and to replace the equipment at full retail value if lost, stolen or not returned within 24 hours of my reserved rental time. I understand that if I exceed my reserved rental time and inconvenience other customers I will be charged a rate double that of the regular rental rate for time exceeded.
