Perfect Staycation ~ Surf Safari Huntington Beach

For this month’s featured story, my good friend Stephanie is joining me on the blog today. I’m so excited to be featuring her cool little business, HB Surf Safari, that she runs out of her stylish, remodeled RV.

Whether you’re an OC Native or a recent transplant, you’ll definitely want to read on to learn more about how Stephanie has transformed the “typical day at the beach” into something much more hip, convenient, and totally memorable.

So, How Did HB Surf Safari Get Started?

A few years ago my brother-in-law was kind enough to give me his camper (although in its original state it was quite ugly to look at!) Our kids asked if we could paint it - so with the help of some neighborhood artists and many cans of spray paint later, the RV was quickly transformed. Our kids decorated the inside and collaged it with cool designs. We also upgraded by building a tiki deck on top so the kids could hang out on the roof. Routine trips to the beach in our revamped RV soon became a favorite family pastime. We would post up for the day while the kids enjoyed the beach - surfing, biking, long boarding, and then lounging in the camper every now and then for a little break.

Our little RV was gaining popularity in our neighborhood and at the beach. People began asking if we rented out the RV or if we offered surf lessons.

“Well no” I thought, “but what a wonderful idea!” 

My primary focus is actually in commercial real estate, so the thought of starting a family business out of our refurbished RV was not only a little unconventional (a little?!) but nothing I would ever have imagined doing. So when a thought became a reality, it was just as surprising to me as anyone else.

What is Your Main Goal at HB Surf Safari?

  

Our mission is to provide an amazing experience for all our customers, whether they’re from out of town or Cali locals. We make sure that their day is set up just the way they want it - from surfing, and riding bikes, to boarding on the boardwalk, fishing and more. We are really flexible with how we rent out the RV. Some people opt for an entire day extravaganza, and others just want to rent out the RV for a half day or just a few hours. Either way, we like to accommodate as needed (and since we have 40 surfboards and 50 wetsuits, it’s easy to do so!) In addition, we have a great relationship with Hamboards, a local company that sells an array of giant skateboards, anywhere from a typical longboard to a 6 ft skateboard.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing beach getaway, my son's girlfriend is a yoga instructor so we can set up yoga on the beach during the day, and then have a fun campfire at night, by setting up beach chairs and umbrellas around a firepit. The goal is create a special, fun day for family, co-workers or friends that would like to enjoy a day at the beach and try new things without the hassle of gathering all the miscellaneous equipment to make it happen.  

What are the Rates?

$399 half day - for a group of 4 people (3-4 hours)

$699 for full day - for a group (up to 12 hours)

It’s kind of like having a family member in Huntington Beach that has a full set up. Our favorite spot to take customers is down to Bolsa Chica - we know a lot people down there, the waves are good and the boardwalk is really fun for riding handboards!
