Malibu Surf Shack
This isn’t the only spot on the highway to rent gear, but it’s arguably one of the best, due in no small part to its cozy proximity to Surfrider Beach. In addition to rentals—kayaks, boards (including SUP), and wetsuits—you can book lessons from skilled instructors who know their craft and the surrounding area. If you’ve got time to spare, consider arranging a guided kayak or paddle boarding tour. The shack is also a good place to purchase Malibu-centric souvenirs for pals back home.
