French Broad Outfitters
704 Riverside Drive
Asheville, NC 28801

Owners and best friends, Melissa and Derek share a love for the outdoors and a passion for paddlesports. One day, while enjoying a few beers, they started throwing around some ideas that transformed into Asheville Adventure Rentals, now known as French Broad Outfitters. FBO is the first Paddlesports-focused shop in Asheville, right on the beautiful French Broad River. They aim to bring you the highest quality retail and rental gear but their top-line goal is to create a community for other like-minded folks. So come on down, introduce yourself and hang out for a bit. Kids and dogs are always welcome!
