What Our Clients Say About Us


Great Sprint Rentals with NO hassle.


Christian Grau – Denmark Coach

Brought the whole team to train in Florida for 3 weeks and rented kayaks from Ian. The boats were waiting for us when we arrived and were in terrific shape. Ian stopped by several times during our stay to see if we needed anything.I will work with STARC again.

The best choice for a hassle free training camp. We will be back next year!


Balazs Babella – Singapore Head Coach

Service that can't be beat

I ordered a new k1 cinco with a custom graphic. Ian was very patient with us as we went through several revisions and asked lots of questions. He even offered suggestions to make the graphic better. I highly recommend you work with STARC.

We Love it Here

This was our first visit to train in the US. Ian and Melinda helped us find a place to stay, provided boats, and even had our fridge stocked for breakfast. We will come back next year.

Thumbs Up

As a Nelo rep, Ian is fantastic. My boat was damaged in shipping (which he had no control over). Ian responded very quickly and worked hard to get the problem fixed. I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend Sprint Training & Resource Center.

About Us

The Principle owners of STARC are Ian and Melinda Mack….together they have over 15 years of experience in paddlesports including flatwater sprint, marathon, surfski and dragonboat racing. We are located in sunny Southwest Florida where the year round warm climate and variety of waterways makes it a prime location for training camps. Since 2012 they have started a flatwater sprint kayak club and have been host to several teams and individual athletes from around the world coming here to train. France, Belgium, Great Britain, Hungary, Denmark, and Canada….just to name a few. We understand the needs of the  sprint kayak athletes, the coaches and the team coordinators and we strive to meet each of their needs on an individual level. More than 4 years of helping teams with training camps has given us the insight to not only meet their needs, but to find the resources and partners to bring a wealth of concierge services to athletes traveling throughout Florida for training.  Thus Sprint Training & Resources was born!
