CARLSBAD, Calif. - Cape Rey Carlsbad, a Hilton Resort, has partnered with iconic San Diego retailer, Surf Ride, to bring 40+ years of authentic surf culture into the heart of Cape Rey. The new custom Surf Ride Adventure Lounge is now open to hotel guests and locals alike, seven days a week. This one-stop surf shop provides everything from private surf lessons with complimentary GoPro rentals, to guided group surf excursions and even coastal helicopter tours.

The new retail space and surf emporium at Cape Rey caters to everyone from vacationing families and surf novices, to enthusiasts who now have the convenience of traveling without their board and never missing a session. Plus, locals looking to up the ante on adventure will find easier-than-ever access to all things surf-related, right in their backyard - including lessons, equipment and the best gear in town.

You can book private, semi-private or group surf lessons with a skilled professional instructor; escape with a guided 4-hour surf excursion to the best surf spots along the San Diego coast (transportation, board rentals, and wetsuit rentals included); get an aerial view of the pristine So Cal coast with Waverider Helicopter Tours scenic "Surf Check" tour; rent surfboards, and shop the latest retail from all the top surf manufacturers in the world - all in one convenient destination. Didn't bring your board? Test-ride some of the latest performance shaped boards and get insight from Surf Ride on the best breaks in the area. Surf Ride Adventure Lounge also offers complimentary GoPro® cameras with surf lessons, along with a take-home video of your session.

Surf Ride's longstanding relationships in the surf industry means Adventure Lounge guests also get premium access to a curated mix of the best retail brands, including Hurley, Carlsbad-based RAEN, Volcom and many more, alongside an assortment of Surf Ride custom products. From sunglasses, hats and beach bags, to the latest surf apparel, Surf Ride has all the beach essentials covered.
