This year, take your New Year’s fitness resolution to the beach. In Surf City USA, the workout choices are endless. Catch some waves at the beach, bike, along the sand, check out a spin class, or hop on a paddle board in Huntington Beach Harbour. Here are a few of our favorite spots to get sweatin’ in the city.
Zack’s is your one-stop shop for bike and surfboard rentals right by the Huntington Beach Pier. Hop on a beach cruiser and ride along the shore, or peddle with friends and family on a tandem or double bike. If you’re surfing for the first time, no problem! Zack’s has all the boards, wetsuits, and equipment you’ll need. Be sure to book a lesson with an instructor before you ride the waves.
