Everyone has a moment when they need to stop and assess their life and ask, “Is this where I want to be?” and “Is this who I want to be?” In 2010 I faced these questions. I was living in Arizona raising a family and keeping my community safe as a City of Glendale Firefighter/Paramedic. I had what most people would call, “the perfect life.” Every year since I was a child my parents would take me and my two brothers to watch the US Surf Open at Huntington Beach and we’d rent foam boards and act like we were Sunny Garcia. And then it would end and we would load up and drive back to Arizona. It drove me crazy that every time I went on vacation to the beach that I would have to eventually come back home to a place that I just did not fit in. In 2010 I followed my dream, left it all and moved to Hawaii with a goal to open up a small business that focused on renting surfboards, stand up paddleboards, boogie boards, beach equipment as well as offering ocean activities where people could have a great time smiling, getting stoked and most of all making priceless memories while in the water.
This business is called Bob’s Boards Hawaii! It’s simple. My goal is to make your experience easy and fun. It’s made easy by working with you to drop off and pick your rental gear saving you the hassle of having to drive back and forth. We make it fun by providing you the equipment and activities to enjoy these beautiful waters where you will leave with forever memories.
Bob’s Boards Hawaii is striving to get you stoked while trying to think of creative ideas to offer you that will give you the ultimate ocean experience. Something new we are doing is a board rental photo shoot. I can’t tell you how many times we have had customers tell us they wish they could of had some pictures of them during their rental time with us. We now offer a surf photo shoot that includes board rental and photos of you in the water doing your activity. This is an awesome opportunity to capture your stoke!
