White Rock Paddle Company offers several ways to get out on White Rock Lake without the expense and enormous bother of owning a canoe, kayak or paddle board (when looking at them to buy in the store, always ask yourself, "And I store this where?"). You can rent a single kayak for about 15 bucks an hour, canoes for about five bucks more an hour, paddle boards for 20 bucks an hour. After the first full hour, you can rent by the half hour. The people at White Rock Paddle Company also offer lessons for 40 bucks an hour, but an inexperienced paddler on a calm day can usually figure it out. If you're going to take to the lake when there's strong wind blowing or waves and you've never done it before, then, yeah, get a lesson. And don't go out on a super-hot day without a hat. You know what: Just don't go out when it's super hot.
