Harbor location makes it easy for beginners, because there aren't any waves to topple you over. Great for an upper-body workout, with a very relaxing ambiance.

Huntington Harbor is the perfect location for an easy and relaxing stand up paddle board session. Here you will get to enjoy the view of the houses by the harbor, some boats sailing by, and some low bridges you'll have to paddle through while ducking on your board (fun!).

There are several stores close to the harbor, which offer board rentals as well as classes. If you're a beginner, I highly recommend trying this out. You will not have to worry about falling off, because there are no waves that get in your way, just calm waters. When your arms get tired, you can simply lie on your board without worrying about floating in the middle of the ocean.

Once done, you can grab a bite in one of the restaurants near Sunset Beach, along Pacific Avenue, and you can also wait for the sun to set near the shore line.
