What we're about

Calling all paddlers who love Avila Beach!

Avila Beach has a growing community of ocean lovers that love kayaking and paddleboarding, and really LOVE Avila Beach!

This is Vince and Emily Shay, and we own and operate Avila Beach Paddlesports. We have been super stoked to meet so many amazing paddlers over the years--from beginners to pros--and we would like to do our part to foster and support this awesome paddling community.

Since we're here everyday and have dedicated our lives to getting people (and ourselves) on the water, we feel it's only natural to create a Meetup group specifically for Avila Beach Paddlers!

Let's get together and have some fun! We are looking forward to using our resources and connections in the community to create a variety of fun activities for all, and most importantly, we want everyone to feel welcome.

Avila Beach has something to offer every paddler, and we want to create a variety of events that will excite, inspire, challenge, relax, and most importantly M-E-E-T U-P!

We want this to be a true community effort, so please let us know what you're interested in...racing, SUP clinics, SUP surfing, surf kayaking, social paddles, caves, sprint workouts, fitness, otter watching, or just getting out there and making friends.

We love Avila Beach and we love paddling. Don't you?
