UPDATED on Friday 24th - Please Read
We are going with http://www.westwindsailing.com/ since they are right by the beach and parking. $25 for SUP and $20 for kayaks per hour. Ill try to get it cheaper but we are paying a little more since they have the best location. Rent for 2 hours and its $40 and $35 respectively.
For WET SUIT RENTALS - Please rent at the dive shop nearby at Beach Cities Scuba -
which is right on PCH on the way to the pier. Or you can rent at any other location of your choice.
Lets meet by the park benches by the parking lot at 9.30am SHARP. Its earlier to get better parking and higher likelihood of rental availability. We can then get the rentals payment with westwind which is located by the beach on the left side.
There will be a short lesson on SUP's and kayaks by the beach at 10.15am.
NO LAST MINUTE FLAKES PLEASE SINCE I AM RESERVING !
Dana point has a very calm cove which is ideal for beginner stand up paddlers and kayakers. Its a nice workout and we can have some nerdy competitive fun while doing it too. The rental costs will be $25 an hour for SUP and $20 an hour for Kayaks but if we get enough people to sign up, I am sure I can negotiate to get a much better deal. In your RSVP please state your preference for SUP or kayak.
Wear sandals, workout clothes or wetsuit in case you are uncoordinated enough to fall into the water (i.e. me). Sun glasses and sun screen is recommended if you burn easily (i.e. not me).
Ill confirm the precise address by Thursday once the rental shop has been selected.
Here is one of the rental shops - http://www.danapointjetski.com/index.php
There are 14 SUP and 21 kayaks for rental. There are wet suits for rental as well. Recommend that you rent wet suits if you have never stand up paddled before.
Attendance policy will be in effect since the group rate will assume that you show up.
