Is it free to use life vest? Kid rate joining parent

When you rent SUP for 40,000 won, life vest is provided free of charge.

You can bring your own life vest too if you want to use your own life vest.

There are small, medium, large, extra large size life vests.

For kid who is doing SUP with parent’s board or adult, kid rate is 10,000 won.

It includes life jacket, changing room, shower, drinking water and club facilities-lounging, chair, keeping your belongings(without lock or locker though) etc.
If your kid is younger than 7-8 year old then club owner wants you to bring your kid’s life vest to make sure it’s fitting and safe for the children.

Can kids do SUP like a 3 year old?

Club owner thinks it is possible to have kid on the same SUP board when parent is doing SUP.

If he/she is good with water, has a life jacket, floater and parent(s) is/are confident swimmer then it’s fine to bring your kid(s) and join SUP.

Recently I(Jiyoung) had a couple with 4 year old. 🙂

She was very comfortable with water, playing in the Pyeongtaek lake came out of SUP board!

She enjoyed riding with her dad and mom switching back and forth to 2 different boards.

She was scared more on the board than water!
Getting more comfortable and used to SUP slowly with parents’ patience and encouragement. 🙂

This is for the kid who is not afraid of water and have a confident swimmer parent. 🙂

When you scroll down on this instagam, you can see parent with kids and dogs!!

For kid with parents, the rental fee (kid life vest, shower, drinking water etc) is 10,000 won.

Kitezone Korea has 8 kids life vests. Kids life vests are good for kids around 7-8 year old age.

Club owner encourages parents to bring their own life vest(s) for their kids if they are under that age group.
To make sure kids are safe with right size life vest.

What’s the hours of SUP rental place?

There is no official business hours as it is not business.

The club owner is there ONLY when wind is there for kiteboarding.

He and I discussed that I would assist in SUP rental situation for expats.
The place is not SUP rental business place.

It’s private kiteboarder’s membership club that has SUP, jet boards and could bring kayaks.

He has job in Seoul and he is busy with kiteboarding passion/hobby/work around all kiteboarding projects.

Usually he’s out in the water doing kiteboarding all over Korea. 🙂 So there is no set hours as it’s not official water sports rental biz place.

But for people like me and you to enjoy SUP etc there, I can help expats come over and rent SUP or kayak etc when I am around.

If I join kiteboarding trips or have massage session or other things I am occupied then I won’t be there.

But otherwise I plan to go SUP everyday as often as possible for workout and nature therapy.
I usually like to go SUP around 5-7PM.

I live 16-20 min from the club.

So feel free to message me to see if I am around or will be available for you to come and use SUP.
