Need SUP rental advice in Oceanside or Dana Point
« on: March 11, 2018, 02:50:16 PM »
Well,  my wife and I are down here in Oceanside for a few days and hoping to do some paddling. But so far,  the rental outfits we have found don't have any quality 12.6 or 14ft. touring/race boards to rent. I guess I made the wrong assumption that SUP and Kayak rental outfits would be well equipped and all over the place. Not so. Anyone have any recommendations?
What about on Catalina Island?  We are going to schedule 1 trip out there either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Thanks for any help or advice!

Catalina has some great paddling and there are about two or three outfits that rent SUP.  That seeing said, none of them have really decent boards, especially touring or race boards.  We always rent from Descaso Ocean Sports.

So many thanks to Chris for showing us a great time at Baby Beach in Dana Point today. He provided us with great equipment and even paddled with us to show us the area. And what an awesome area it is!  He brought a number of different boards for us to try and that was awesome. I highly recommend anyone coming to the area for the first time to look him up and meet up for a great paddle experience. So glad that it all worked out!

So awesome, and thanks for posting your adventure. Chris is always full of stoke whenever around, a great ambassador of the sport, and a nicer person you'll not find. So pleased you got to meet one of our areas best, and had a great time with him...wouldn't have expected anything less.  :)
