Northern California Surfers Launch Surfbreakrentals.com: A Niche Beach Vacation Rental Website

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) December 01, 2011

Surfbreak Rentals publicly announced their new travel website this month, which is dedicated to helping traveling surfers find great places to stay near the worlds best surf breaks and beaches. The entire site design and navigation is based on more than 1500 global surf breaks, which makes surfbreakrentals.com the first vacation rental site that allows users to search for accommodations based on specific beaches and surf breaks.

Surfbreak Rentals has already attracted over 1500 property listings and sparked a buzz among surf communities worldwide. Their rental coverage in certain hard-to-navigate surf destinations, like Nicaragua, is already among the best in the world. And properties are rapidly filling in around other top surf breaks and beaches as the word spreads about this long overdue travel resource.

A New Tool for Casual Beach-Goers and Professional Surfers Alike

Surfers have a knack for finding the best beaches, often years before the rest of the world. This makes Surfbreak Rentals an incredible resource for anyone looking for that perfect rental near one of the worlds most famous or most undiscovered beaches. Surfbreak currently has listings for homes, condos, B&Bs, surf camps, hostels and hotels, so there are options for travelers on any sort of budget. There is also a section to list Local Services, where traveling surfers find things like rides, local hang outs, and after surf activities.

As helpful as Surfbreak Rentals is for everyday beach-goers, the site was originally designed for traveling surfers, so this is where the site really shines. Professional surfer and world traveler Timmy Reyes jumped onboard to help promote the site as soon as he was introduced to it, calling Surfbreak the ultimate surf destination website. Renowned big wave surfer Peter Mel had a similar reaction once he saw the site; After all my years of traveling to the globes premier surf destinations, wishing I had an effortless tool for accommodations, here it is finally - a rental site dedicated to the worlds best surf breaks." Professional surfer and traveling dad Ken Skindog Collins said it most succinctly of all; That site is sick!

This sort of feedback is incredibly important to the Surfbreak Rentals crew because the company views the professional surfing crowd as some of the most critical and demanding in terms of their travel needs. Pro surfers are always searching for a great place to stay near the next big swell or contest, and they often have to make their travel arrangements at a moments notice.

A Valuable Resource for Coastal Property Owners - and Currently Free to List

Surfbreak Rentals has proven to be extremely attractive to coastal property owners and managers because it provides them a platform to showcase the unique location of their property to a targeted user base that is already looking for exactly what they have. With beach rentals making up the single largest category in the vacation rental market, it is often difficult for a home with a prime location near a great beach to stand out amongst the flood of other rentals in their area, at least until now. Initial feedback from property owners is that they are receiving fewer inquiries, but more bookings, from their Surfbreak Rentals listings compared to their listings on other vacation rental sites, which is a testament to Surfbreaks active and targeted user base. Property owners have also enjoyed an incredible deal so far, as they can still list a property for free on Surfbreakrentals.com, which is a $ 300+ value on other vacation rental sites.

Founder Matt Belden Explains the Idea Behind the Site

Ive always dreamed of a super user-friendly site that let me search for rentals by surf break rather than region or city, because finding a great place to stay is a challenge on almost every surf trip I take. For example, a lot of people know the surf spot Colorados in Nicaragua, but not many would know to search for rental listings in the Tola Province. So with Surfbreak Rentals weve streamlined this clunky search process by building the whole site around specific surf breaks. Its a simple twist, but it makes all the difference in the world to people that care first and foremost about the beaches or surf breaks theyre traveling to.

About Surfbreak Rentals

Surfbreak Rentals was founded by a group of Northern California surfers with a passion for traveling and technology. After years of struggling to find great places to stay near their favorite surf breaks while on the road, they finally decided to do something about it by creating surfbreakrentals.com. Their long-term goal is to also help localize the tourism industry, by making it easier for travelers to connect directly with the communities they visit instead of getting stuck in tourist traps. Surfbreak Rentals currently operates out of the back of one of their local surf shops, Proof Lab, located in Mill Valley California.

Simcoe, Grey and Bruce County Beach Towns Draw Millions to Lake Huron Shoreline

Sauble Beach, ON (PRWEB) July 05, 2011

The Lake Huron shoreline in Simcoe, Grey and Bruce Counties comes alive each summer with the arrival of millions of tourists and summer residents to Beach Towns that have come to shape the shoreline since the 1920s. With over 89 beaches with public access located in the region just a short drive from the Greater Toronto area and 1,000 kilometres of Lake Huron shoreline, the Simcoe, Grey and Bruce county beaches are considered the Florida of the north for Ontario beaches. Wasaga Beach boasts 14 kilometres of white sand, making it the longest freshwater sandy beach in the world while 11 kilometres of golden sand afford Sauble Beach the enviable title of the world’s second longest freshwater beach. Wasaga Beach alone draws over 2 million visitors each year to the rapidly growing community and the kitschy beach shops, beachy accommodations, cottages and beach fries make Sauble Beach the quintessential beach town.

Many festivals and events take place on substantial public urban waterfronts in Simcoe, Grey and Bruce County. Visitors are drawn to the water to experience the unique atmosphere only found in a lakeside town, to take in the vista, play water sports from kite surfing to jet skiing, swim, jog on the kilometres of pristine beaches and enjoy time with family and friends over a locally inspired meal at an outdoor café. Other notable beaches include Kincardine’s Station Beach, Port Elgin Beach, Southampton Beach and Balm Beach. There is even a nationally recognized Grotto in Bruce Peninsula National Park, the most popular attraction in the Ontario park. Carved out by the waves of the Georgian Bay, visitors hike to the Grotto where they climb down through the natural chimney in the rock of the Niagara Escarpment. The cave itself is stunning, with sunlight from the outside revealing a brilliant underwater tunnel on the inside. Tourists can walk along a ledge inside its cavity or swim in its cool, clear, turquoise water.

The Lake Huron shoreline is also noted for its incredible beach sunsets. Be sure to catch the Phantom Piper in Kindardine that sends chills down the spines of visitor’s each evening or the sunset behind Chantry Island in Southampton, rated the 2nd best in the world by National Geographic.

Kites Fill the Sky for Annual Huntington Beach Kite Party

xml:lang="en" lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Kites Fill the Sky for Annual Huntington Beach Kite Party

Huntington Beach, Calif. (Vocus) February 17, 2009

Scores of kites will fill the skies over the Pacific shoreline during the Annual Huntington Beach Kite Party Saturday and Sunday, February 28th and March 1st. The free event takes place just north of the historic Huntington Beach pier (approximately 405 Pacific Coast Highway at Main Street) and takes off each morning at 11:00 a.m. with an awesome display of colorful, high-flying, high-tech aerobatics. The Kite Party continues until dark each evening.

Some of the best professional kite fliers and teams in the world converge on Surf City USA® to flaunt their skills, not to mention their colorful stunt kites, for this annual family-friendly event. Kite fliers participate by invitation only, but beach goers have a front row seat for this fabulous event. Spectators will be amazed by the kites as they loop, dive and dance across the sky under the control of expert kite enthusiasts from all over the country.

"People who live and visit Huntington Beach love to fly kites. But their passion goes way beyond what children do with a piece of plastic and a tail of knotted cloth on windy day in the park," according to Kite Connection owner, Dave Shenkman. "If you've never experienced professional kite flying, or even if you have, you will be in for a treat at this event."

The Huntington Beach Kite Party is a casual, family-friendly event. Although the event draws more than 100 kite fliers each year, including some of the country's best professionals, even kite noobs (beginners) are welcome to take flight and soar throughout the weekend.

There are several professional demos planned throughout both days of the event and, new this year, there will be free Sport Kite lessons offered by professional kite fliers. Kites are available to purchase and the beach area adjacent the roped-off kite arenas is available for public kite flying. There is no specific schedule of the day's festivities, which is one of the great things about the Kite Party - it's a day filled with folk who like to hang out and fly kites.

Kite flying has evolved over the years from a passive pastime into an active sport. The American Kitefliers Association (AKA), founded in 1964, now has more than 4,000 members in 35 countries. In the next three months alone, the organization lists 272 kite festivals and competitions worldwide.

Kite Connection, which has been supplying sports kites for 25 years from its location atop Huntington Beach Pier, sponsors the Kite Party. Owner Dave Shenkman has taught more than 500,000 elementary students about aerodynamics through a program called Kites for Kids. He also offers free sport kite flying lessons to those who wish to brush up on their skills. Kite Surfing lessons are also available.
