Forgive a newbie ... but I'm just getting into kayaking and am still renting boats. i've had great luck with southwinds at newport ... but you can only do the back bay so often. i'd like to find other places where i can rent on the water (without having to truck the boat in). I seem to see these all over the place up north, but not so much here in Southern California. Any suggestions?

We're a little limited in Southern California, but you can rent boats in San Diego at Aqua-Adventures and in Santa Barbara at Paddlesports (they also have a location in Carpinteria), and up in San Luis Obispo you can rent at Central Coast Kayaks.

Unless Southwind has changed their policy since I last rented from them, you should be able to load a boat on your car and go where you'd like. Of course that assumes you have a kayak rack.
