Dig Paddlesports – Located in Hurricane, UT
In 2011, we opened Washington County, Utah’s first dedicated paddle operation.That’s just what you do when you constantly invite your friends to paddle and there are no available rental shops in the area. Especially in the desert! In 2014, Quail Creek State Park became available for us to establish operations at the water’s edge. We have grown and expanded from that point, thanks to our customers’ support and the cooperation and support of the state parks.
We are WPA and PaddleFit certified coaches, and our goal is to help people have the best experience that they can on the water. Part of that is accomplished through having good equipment, and another part is accomplished with good instruction. We have a great team of instructors, staff, and volunteers that help to make everyday rentals, sales, and events a success for you.
We also sell boards, kayaks, and accessories. We are dealers for SIC, Imagine, Pau Hana, Riviera, Glide, and Bounce stand up paddleboards. We have a blended rental fleet and work to match each paddler with the best board for their ability levels and performance desires. www.digpaddlesports.com
