I haven't even done a kayak tour and I love this place. The collection of beach oddities is simply amazing - shells, coral, jewelry, and especially the crystal-rock-like slag glass of various breathtaking colors. Also available are unique authentic signs, decorative sculptures, antiques, surf wear and equipment, and much more. I live two hours away, and I've already been back... More

My teen daughter and I have kayaked together in many places. We liked the Pismo Surf shop for its eclectic garden, relaxed owner/guide, and a great cave tour complete with photos. I thought the tour was a bit pricey compared to others we have done in our hometown of Santa Cruz, but it was just the 2 of us with... More

Stopped by the shop, and Bill had us out kayaking within the hour! Wet suits, footies, life jackets, helmets, and a wonderful DVD of our excursion was all provided! Well worth the time and money to enjoy the coast, caves and sea life of Pismo Beach! Thanks again Bill!

I contacted the shop when I moved to Pismo Beach so I could learn how to stand up paddleboard. I scheduled a lesson with Bill, the shop owner, for a Tuesday morning at 7am. We paddled throughout Shell Beach and saw tons of wildlife. Loved it and was hooked. All the guys at the shop are incredibly knowledgable in their... More

My wife and I went out with Bill , the owner of Pismo Beach Surf Shop and Ryan this morning. What a great experience! We were outfitted with wet suits, paddles and safety gear and then guided on a fabulous tour of the Shell Beach coastline. We saw plenty of seals and otters in the kelp beds and dolphins out... More

Pismo Beach was a great morning for me and my husband and my two children aged 9 and 8. The two activities are surfing and kayaking. The kayaking is done in groups, our group had at least 6 or 7 people in it. You learn how to kayak properly through caves with strong currents and big waves. The surfing which... More

My nine year old grandson (from Tennessee) was with me for a week and I wanted him to experience the best the Central Coast has to offer. For me kayaking the shell beach cliffs is high on that list. When I researched the rental shops Bill's place was the only one that would allow a nine year old so I... More

After doing some thorough research before our trip, Myself and my partner decided to visit the shop to book our kayaking tour. Bill greeted us and immediately put my mind at rest (I hate the sea, can't swim great and was nervous as hell) he told us that the best time would be 7am as the sea would be calm... More

Meandering through all the goodies in the Pismo Beach Surf Shop could take days. They have so much stuff, from surfboards and gear, to sea glass, signs, clothing, yard ornaments, and other unique items. Gidget the cat will greet you upon your arrival. The owners were very friendly as well and gave us directions to the Dunes at Oceano. If... More
