A few years ago, I went with a couple friends to the Newport Peninsula to rent stand up paddle boards to take out in Newport Harbor. It was such a great experience, we went back again the following weekend. It is such a fun activity that gets you outside and exercising all while enjoying the sites from the cool water in the harbor.
For the more experienced paddle boarder, the ocean offers a much more challenging workout paddling through the waves and currents. For a few months I visited Paddle Board Newport Beach to rent a board. After realizing how much I enjoyed the sport, I visited Paddle Surf Warehouse in Costa Mesa and purchased my own board.
