  • Kayak the Coast of Santa Barbara
    We'll start from Santa Barbara's center - WEST BEACH! Located on the sand directly across from the Harbor View Inn Hotel. From there you'll get geared up with ocean kayaks, paddles, life vests, and there will be a shed to lock up belongings you prefer not to get soggy :) We'll slide the kayaks into the ocean and off we'll be to explore! Most paddles include gliding along the beautiful boats docked in our harbor. From there we'll experience Sandspit, a favorite little beach perfect for catching a tender wave, taking a break, and snapping some photos. Our favorite part is showing you the adorable family of sea lions that sun bathe on a buoy out in the middle of the channel! After saying goodbye to the sea lions we'll navigate along Stearn's Warf / Santa Barbara's Pier taking in the gorgeous riviera landscape all while letting the tide push you gently back to the coast making the return paddle a breeze. Hope to paddle with you soon! Other things to note: Each participant must be able to swim to join this tour. Parking is free on the streets around the hotels off of cabrillo blvd, or, if you don't mind paying there's an easy parking lot at Garden and Cabrillo to the left or south of the pier. This tour is only able to operate with a minimum of 2 tour-goers. If you're a solo traveler and the only one signed up for the tour we'll be in touch with alternate options.

  • Voted #1 Surf Lessons in Santa Barbara
    We'll all meet at the beautiful Shoreline Park right up the hill from Leadbetter Beach. As you pull into the free parking lot, look the white Ford Transit van with the Lovewater sticker on the back. From there we'll put on wetsuits, grab our boards and head down to the beach. For the first 15 minutes we'll do a pre-lesson warm up where I'll go over wave knowledge, ocean safety tips, paddling, surf etiquette, turning on the wave, and a detailed review of how to "pop-up" on the surfboard. After the warm up, we'll head out into the lineup where we'll spend a good 1.5 hours having fun catching waves and fine tuning our stance on the board and our ability to catch our own waves. If you learn quick, I'll start progressing you into catching waves on your own and doing some new maneuvers on the wave. And if you're wanting to set up a more focused Private or Semi-Private lesson, don't hesitate to message me to get more info. There's a reason why our surf lessons have the highest ranking and most combined reviews of any surf lessons in the area: the most experienced surf coaches, best surf equipment, joyful hearts, and a true love for surf! Other things to note Bring a camera, water, swimsuit and a towel. In order to learn more about our surf experiences, summer surf camps and after-school surf programs, feel free and visit LovewaterSurfdotcom or call us at 805-636-1552
