We were passing through Santa barbara and I decided that morning that I wanted to try surfing. Nathan happily helped accommodate me on such short notice. We met Cody at Santa clause lane where he had everything ready for us. Cody was very helpful and informative. Like a dad helping a child when the training wheels are first taken off,... More

Cody was a terrific surf instructor!! Really learned a lot of the fundamentals and basics of surfing from him. The work we did on the beach helped me get ready to chase the waves in the water. I would highly recommend these lessons for any beginner surfer.

Nathan W. was a really personable and pleasant guide for our electric bike ride from their shop along the beach and up into the surrounding hills. He pointed out sites of interest along the way and let us stop and take pictures as we wished. We saw a mother and baby grey whale in the bay when we stopped in... More

Had a free Friday, and had spotted the SB Fitness Tours truck downtown the day before. Called Nathan and he set me up! Spur of the moment mountain bike rental and a wonderful tour from Brian. Two hours of sweat, scenic views, and flowy singletrack. From top to bottom a smooth operation. I intend to come back and do this... More

Awesome experience renting bikes with Santa Barbara Fitness Tours. Easy to rent in advance online, connected via email to work out details, and then had the bikes dropped off at our AirBnB place the day we arrived. Easy and smooth. Loved riding our cruiser bikes around SB. Would definitely come back and use SB Fitness Tours again!

Mitch and his team at Santa Barbara Fitness Tours knocked it out of the park for our group of Chicago-area cyclists for the second year in a row! We look for a place to take an early spring trip and do some challenging road bike riding, and Mitch set our group of 11 up on excellent bikes with superb guides... More

Just back from a day on a bike rented from Santa Barbara Fitness Tours. I would usually try to rent from a local bike shop, but a colleague of mine happened to rent from this company on Monday. He was extremely pleased, so I thought I'd give it a try. Was also noticeably less expensive than one of the bike... More

I needed a quick refreshing lesson on a few things, and he was incredibly helpful. I had a great time surfing with Andrew. He was friendly, knowledgable, and super-encouraging.

The instructor (Nate) was patient and experienced and really allowed for a great surf lesson. I was a bit nervous at first, but he made me feel completely at ease and his instruction me allowed me to be successful in my first lesson. I look forward to coming back in the future!
