Stopped by to rent a few boogie boards. The guy who helped us was really friendly and nice. He picked us out really NICE boards that were in great shape! He suggested a kayak trip and we explained that while that sounded great, we had our dog with us. "Not a problem!", he said. Apparently, if your dog will sit... More

We took the 7:30 am kayak trip through caves and saw tons of wildlife - my favorite part! Birds, Otters, pelicans, seals and a dolphin too! It was really fun to learn how to kayak through caves! Awesome, fun adventure on the water! We will do it again next trip! We want to try the fishing kayak trip too! Super... More

We had such a great morning here with Bill and Roody. The water was calm and the wildlife was amazing. Roody was a perfect guide keeping us safe but also knowing how much thrill to add. Surfing waves on a kayak was great fun and the very cool seal who copied us was a real treat too! Thanks again for... More

On August 3rd, we had schedeled a kayaking tour for 7:30 a.m. and received a call the afternoon before. They asked if we could come to the 4:30 tour that day. We were still on the road headed for Pismo. When I told them this, they said sorry but they were not doing the 7:30 a.m. tour the next day.... More

Dear Customer, I am sorry that I was not able to do the 7:30 am tour for you and offered a 4:30 tour instead. A Medical Emergency came up, that needed attending too. As the Owner of Pismo Beach Surf Shop I take a lot of pride in my Kayak Tours with my customers and always provide a free CD... More

Decided to take the whole family surfing and could not have had a better experience! Brian was an excellent instructor, the kids loved him. It couldn't have been a more beautiful day and we have memories to last a lifetime. Will definitely swing by for more surfing next year.

Excellent tour with Randy. Both kids had kayaked before, but not in the ocean. I had never kayaked so it was a great learning experience. Small group, great sites. Thanks!

We were in Pismo for a short time and stopped by after the morning kayak tour had returned, but Bill took us out so we wouldn't miss the opportunity before leaving town. We are so glad we booked the tour! Bill took us by the harbor seals on the little rock island, and we got pretty close to a sea... More

We just love Bill and the young people that work in the surf shop. We've taken surf lessons and kayak lessons and the lessons are always the highlight of our trip. These are really nice guys who enjoy what they do and want their customers to have a good time. The surf shop is always fun to peruse for curiosities... More
