We love Avila Beach and we have dedicated the last 3 years to getting locals and visitors in the water on kayaks and SUPs (stand up paddleboards). We are Avila's only kayak and SUP shop, and we are really excited to provide you with the best service and easy access to our beautiful corner of coastline, year-round!
Avila Beach Paddlesports...it just makes sense! Check out our multiple locations!
The Port! 3915 Avila Beach Drive
|Port San Luis: Our Main Office is Open Year-Round|
You can rent kayaks and SUPs at our main office in Port San Luis at 3915 Avila Beach Drive (right on the water before you get to the end of Avila Beach Drive and the 3rd pier).
This area is the Port San Luis Harbor area, and the waters are calm and perfect for beginning paddlers. We include a free lesson with all SUP and kayak rentals, so beginners are welcome!

The Promise: We Give Back!
We created the Pay-It-Forward Paddling Project to provide opportunities for at-risk and underprivileged youth to enjoy kayaking and SUPing adventures at little to no cost!
We believe that every child should have the chance to connect with the ocean, so we have created a special fund to sponsor educational and exciting kayak and SUP tours for young people of our community and beyond. We take a portion of every tour booked and contribute to this fund, so we can give the gift of paddling!
