Portage Lakes Stand Up Guys

Portage Lakes Stand Up Guys Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) rental company based in Portage Lakes, Ohio!

Operating as usual


Hey guys, I'd just like to say thank you to all who supported us over the years! It's time for the Stand Up Guys to close shop.

I got to meet a ton of great people and I hope you guys enjoyed your time on the water.

We started by stacking boards on a Toyota Corolla. It was completely ridiculous. We were winging it from day one, and that was kinda our style.

I've got to give some props..To the OG partner, Gino, couldn't have gotten it off the ground without your help. And you helped us grow so much. Thank you brother.

-Todd Greco of Greco Surf, dude was on the forefront of the SUP craze and he supplied the gear, and made it all possible. Thanks for the hookup!

-Release Yoga, and all the awesome instructors who led our SUP yoga classes. They endured crazy winds, thunderstorms, and rowdy PLX pontoon people. But most days, it was one of the most peaceful ways to start your day. You guys rocked.

-The wife-thanks for putting up with me being gone all the time. Love ya babe!

And for those who will still need your SUP fix, check out Killin it Kayaks. Dude will take care of you.

Again, thank you all for hanging with us. Take care.

Hey everyone! Gino here. I've met many of you over the past few years and certainly enjoyed working with all of you but I've decided to move on and starting now I will no longer be with the Stand Up Guys. If you could please use Phil's number (330-808-2590) for any future reservations or inquiries, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Happy paddling!



What's up paddlers!?

We're just a couple days away from the start of season.. Very excited to see you all out on the water! Our rental season starts on Monday, Memorial Day (5/25/15). Just a reminder that we do require as close to 24 hours notice as possible for all rentals so be sure to give us a call soon and book your spot for Memorial Day!

So glad to see that ice melting! Get ready paddlers... SUP season is right around the corner!


The Stand Up Guys would like to give a big shout out to all the yogis who participated this season in our SUP Yoga programs. And an especially big THANK YOU to all the peeps at Release Yoga in Green! They are really pasionate about what they do and they really care about their clients/friends. Thanks again ladies.


Yo Yo water people, in case you've been wondering....we're still open. We're hearing all this "Summer's over" talk...and that may be true, but the water is still warm. And when the leaves start to change, Portage Lakes is a beautiful place to paddle. We should be going strong until October.


Happy 4th of July! The weather's supposed to be perfect for paddling. Give us a call and come see Portage Lakes at the best time of the year!


Hey water people! We're starting our paddle board fitness classes again. This week's class will be Sunday at 11:30, Turkeyfoot Beach. Join us for a great core and balance workout, $20.


Spots are filling up FAST for tomorrow! 82 degrees and bright sun all day. Give us a call if you'd like to get out on the water!

Hope everybody enjoys their holiday weekend

Phil & Gino



Glad to see the lakes are finally thawing out! We can't wait to get back out on the water with everybody this summer!


All of this cold weather is just making us more excited to get out on the water! Who's coming out with us this summer!? #SUP #portagelakes

Hey everyone,

We just wanted to thank everyone for all the support this summer! Especially here on FB. We will be back in action in March. Looking forward to see you all on the water in 2014. Thanks again.

Hey everyone!

While our season is coming to close, it's not over yet! It's still nice and warm enough out there to get out on the lake once or twice before you have to trade in the paddle board for a pair of ice skates!

Send us an email, give us a call, or make a reservation on our website!
