Watersports at Hotel Del | Paddleboarding, Surfing & More Skip to Main Content

Enjoy paddleboarding, surfing, skim boarding and more

Located at the Boardwalk Pool near the Ocean Towers, this central hub is home to all the toys and equipment needed for fun in the sun. Grab a skim or boogie board, or sign up for a surf lesson—we’ve got wetsuits, boards of all shapes and sizes, and the best SoCal instructors like Stingray Steve, who can teach you to hang ten in those perfect waves. Or get a great core workout during a stand up paddle boarding lesson from our resident expert, Gnarly Neal. GoPro rentals are available, too.



Available daily year-round, except for major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter). Guests may also add on the Del Surf Photography Package to any lesson. Photography and videos are captured by a surf instructor during the lesson. SD cards are available for 450.
