GREEN COVE SPRINGS – PADL is introducing a new way to rent paddleboards right from your smartphone, and it launched its first of five new stations at Clay County’s Camp Chowenwaw County Park.
PADL is similar to bike shares popular around the country, such as Citi Bike, where technology has enabled a new aspect of convenience and flexibility in the rental process. To get started, download the PADL app and rent and unlock a paddle board directly from your smartphone.
The station is conveniently located near the kayak launch for easy access from sunrise to sunset. Camp Chowenwaw, and all of Clay County, present itself as a great spot to paddle.
The beautiful 150-acre recreation site on Black Creek, located in Green Cove Springs near its confluence with the St. Johns River, has wonderful sunrises, calm waters and tons of aquatic life. These location features make it great to not only cruise, but also to do yoga on the boards, fish from the boards, and even do a little diving, if that’s your thing. If one adventure isn’t enough, PADL has partnered with Clay County to roll out up to 5 more stations across the region, enabling riders to discover and enjoy all the hidden gems the county has to offer.
How it works
Users simply download the PADL app on their smartphones and create an account. Then they can locate a nearby station using the app’s interactive map. To unlock, riders select the board from the app and follow the prompts. To return the board, you place the paddle and the board back on the station, and end the rental from within the app. All safety gear is provided on the station, and the app summarizes the trip after the ride is completed.
PADL’s Clay County station is located at Camp Chowenwaw County Park on Black Creek, located at 1517 Ball Road, with more to follow soon.
