Boats, Boards and Bikes!


HMB Kayak Company Covid-19 re-opening guidelines

In anticipation of our re-opening on May 4, we would like to inform the public and our patrons of guidelines that have been put in place for the safety of ourselves and others patronizing our business.

  • There will be no parking available on site or in the harbor, and we ask that you walk, bike, or roll here prepared to paddle in suits and synthetic “work out” clothing, or prepared to just put on a wetsuit without using our changing rooms.
  • We also ask that you are prepared to take your valuables and other items with you on your craft. A simple backpack with your items in ziplock bags inside it works great and can be brought out on the water with you.
  • Once on site, all San Mateo County social distancing protocols will apply, and in the interest of comfort, we ask that you wear face coverings if you are unable to stay within a 6-foot distance of someone.
  • The nature of our picnic table and seating stations will reinforce the distancing protocol and we will be present for guidance and assistance if needed.
  • We will be dunking and sanitizing all gear after single use including paddles, kayaks, paddleboards, life jackets, and bikes.
  • Please be aware of your contact with surfaces and follow the flow that has been laid out to help with this transition into operation.
We are happy to offer you a recreation experience and are here to help manage your risks both on and off the water. We welcome you to come see our process and get out on the ocean.

Thank you very much for your support, and we look forward to seeing you.
