SAN DIEGO, California – After almost 25 years in the surf, SUP and paddle industry West Coast Paddle Sports owner Bob Long is going to retire and is putting the shop up for sale, and is ready to pass the reigns on to the next generation of paddlers to mind the shop.
In order to create the smoothest transition possible, Bob Long is offering an apprenticeship to the buyer to teach them the ins and outs of the shop and to give key knowledge and insights on how to be as successful as he has been these past two decades.
West Coast Paddle Sports is located in one of the most heavily trafficked areas of San Diego with easy access to both Mission and San Diego Bays. This shop has been and still remains one of the most sought after facilities and has become known as the place that caters to all paddlers and has all the boards, paddles and gear they need. At over 1,800 square feet with 16 foot ceilings in a warehouse setting, West Coast Paddle Sports offers the finest boards and paddles from the leaders in the SUP, Outrigger and Prone industry.

With all this square footage West Coast Paddle Sports has plenty of room for packing and shipping as well. West Coast Paddle Sports has become a destination for group gatherings and can also offer space for after paddle get togethers such as meetings, video screenings and guest lecturers.
