Convenient &
Affordable Ocean Fun!



Paddle Sports Center Membership

"The Original Paddling Membership Program"

It's true, in 2010 we had a vision regarding paddling memberships in the paddle sports world.  Our goal was to make paddling more affordable and easier for people to experience the wonder of our ocean.  

We provide affordable and convenient access to paddle sports equipment so that people can enjoy and appreciate the ocean environment and by doing so, hopefully help preserve it.

Over the past few years we have been refining our program to get our member base the most benefits for their money and highest quality gear.  We figured that the evolution of the recreation industry involved the community collectively owning a pool of equipment, instead of each of us owning multiple items ourselves.

We have been renting equipment since 1993 and this was the next step for us.  Through years of renting paddle sports equipment in Santa Barbara we thought this would be the best way to introduce, and grow your paddling experience.  Plus, let's be honest.  Exercising on the Ocean is way more fun than in a gym, especially at a fraction of the price.

Our staff are some of the most qualified SUP / Kayak paddlers around, and they love helping people navigate their paddling progress.  This program continues to evolve from our strong community of paddlers feedback & experience.  Learn more about our Paddle Sports Center Membership Program

    “We had a great time kayaking last weekend thanks to the guys at Paddle Sports Center. They were very patient answering our questions, everything went smoothly. It was my first time and they explained everything I needed to know beforehand.”

    This place is awesome! The people are so nice, ready to help you out with all your paddling needs and the gear is very reliable and top notch. Definitely worth the money! Even if it's your first time on a kayak or SUP they welcome you and show you how to do it. There is enclosed water harbor access for the kayaks and SUPs or also beach access for the SUPs to launch through the waves at Leadbetter. Kind people, great gear and good vibes!
