“While on vacation about a month ago, we came over to rent bikes from Tony. Which we found out was a pro surfer, after my daughter said she got surfer boy vibes from him! Lol
About 20 minutes into our bike ride, we got hammered by a rainstorm! Not only did they come pick us up, but Tony offered to let us rent the bikes until the next day! They dropped the bikes off to us later that evening! I mean talk about going above and beyond!!! Tony and his staff were super friendly, polite, and professional! Highly recommend these guys!”
