Paddling Santa Barbara’s beautiful waters is even better with friends! Bring your whole group, small or large, for a few of hours of paddling!
PAY – AS – YOU – GO RENTALS
Pay-as-you-go pricing make sense and saves you money. Using wristbands and our custom Adventure Rental System software, we accurately track your time on the water. The first hour is a flat rate, then any additional time is prorated. So if you are out for an hour and 20min, you pay for an hour and 20min – not a full 2hrs. We have developed this over the years and feel that it is the most fair way to charge our clients. Anywhere else charges you for time you don’t use, we only charge you for EXACTLY how long you are out.
We are conveniently located in the Santa Barbara Harbor, Leadbetter Beach, & Goleta Beach. All you have to do is show up, check-in and go. All of our kayaks & Stand-Up Paddle Boards are located on a floating dock in front of Brophy Bros. restaurant. We have a SUP storage locker on Leadbetter beach for members and personal equipment. We also have Surfing SUP’s and surfboards located in shop. In Fact, if you don’t want to drive – we have bike rack right behind our shop.
LOCKERS, CHANGING ROOMS & HOT SHOWERS
We are a full service rental and membership center. You can place your belongings in lockers ($2 / hour) or use our free cubbies. We have 2 changing rooms for your use to get ready. We also have a warm shower out back to rinse off the post paddle salty water.
BEST GEAR IN TOWN
We pride ourselves on thigh-quality equipment that is always maintained, expertise of the various Paddle Sports, and the general stoke of what spending time on the ocean can provide to our lives. We have equipment to fit every shape, size, and experience level. Our staff spend hundreds of days on the ocean perfecting their skills, so please don’t hesitate and ask questions. You will find fiberglass/carbon paddles, new and clean SUP’s/Kayaks, plus PFD’s/wetsuits that you will actually WANT to wear – we believe this simply makes your experience better.
