The experience that SUP Adventures has is amazing! Rob and his crew have such a great way for handling their business and customers Excellent does not do it justice! If you are looking for the right company to go paddling with look no further! This is the place to get a great experience and not have to worry about any of the details, they have it covered! Be prepared t have fun and enjoy the Santa Barbra area while walking on water SUP style!

Coming from the East Coast, we had seen people do stand up paddle before, but thought that Cali was a great place to try it since it it more popular in that area. Rob was right on time and great at explaining what to expect in the water and how to paddle, etc. The sport itself is quite simple, but we felt safer having a "lesson" with Rob about technique before trying it and having someone who is knowledgeable about local surf conditions, etc. It is fun and a decent workout (a bit sore the next day, but it felt good!). We paddled in the Santa Barbara harbor, so had very calm conditions and great views of the city from the water. Rob was patient, fun, and helpful. Be sure to wear your bathing suit (we fell while trying to surf a little wave in) and bring a waterproof camera - I thought from the website that Rob would have a digital waterproof camera with him, but he didn't, so if you want pics be sure to ask him about that first (which I did not) or bring your own. Our entire experience (lesson, tour around the harbor on our boards, and some free paddling time) was about 2 hours in the late morning.

My Husband and I where planning a trip to Santa Barbara and wanted to Paddle Board. I found these guys online and game them a call. They where so awesome and helpful over the phone will all my questions and booked us over the phone it was soo easy ! We arrived and I wasnt so sure about doing this, being from land locked Denver I wasnt thrilled about Ocean ! Rob was very patient with me and got both my Husband and I right up on our boards. It was windy in the Harbor so it was a little challenging but what a wonderful work out ! We saw fish , a star fish, Harbor seals. I had also seen Dolphins before our lesson started but they where gone when we got out in the harbor. This was truley an awesome time, and the view was breathtaking from the Harbor I was overwhelmed and so very charmed by Santa Barbara ! Rob answered every question I had and gave very good intructions on how to paddle and stay on your board stayed with me as I was a little slower then the hubby and even traded my husband boards because he needed a smaller board to be more challenged ! I would HIGHLY reccomend Paddle boarding with these guys. I enjoyed it so much I brought a board home ! I cant wait until we come back I will defintely be a return customer and I would send any of my family or friends their way ! Very nice people who go out of their way to make sure you have a good time ! I do wish that I had a camera with me and if you can bring a water proof one I would. My husband did fall in because he was trying to surf a wave so it is possible to get wet ! Also bring straps for your sunglasses and polarized lenses to be able to see into the water.
