What is the Adventure Co-Op?

Think of us as your outdoor fitness club.
Adventure Co-Op community members can pay dues to receive convenient and affordable access to paddle sports equipment ( KAYAK | SUP | SURF ). Members who opt to pay as they go receive special discounted access to adventures and lessons, and special rental discounts for themselves and guests! We have removed the obstacles to using this bulky gear so that you can get on the water quickly and easily in Santa Barbara and Goleta Beach. The Co-Op allow members to progress at their own level, while having the extra benefit of profession instructors. We have locker, water, and towel service, not to mention a hot shower on chilly days! Come down to the Paddle Sports Center and learn about what we can offer.

    Co-Op Benefits:
  • 25% off all rentals for you and your guests.
  • 10% OFF on ALL CIO Adventures & Courses for you and guests.
  • 10% rewards on all Paddle Sports Center eligible spending (just like REI)
  • Social events
  • Access with current dues paid

Just a one-time fee of $25
