Hourly Rentals on the Fox River in Geneva, IL:

You can register for a time slot online at or just walk in.  For larger groups, please contact in advance so they are prepared with enough boards for your group.  They open at 9am for rentals every day.

The cost is $30 for 2 hours on weekdays and $35 for 2 hours on weekends.  The cost of the rental includes the board, paddle, life jacket and water bag to store your belongings in.  Should you decide you would like to purchase a board once trying them out, Mill Race will deduct the price of your rental from the purchase price of the board.
