Gonna be in San Diego for awhile. Any good trips with rentable gear I should check out? I do flat water canoeing and open water kayaking but open to whatever is available.

I second Aqua Adventures. They are the highest level paddle sports shop in the area. Jenn Kleck, the owner, is BCU 5 star. Means she also even knows how to canoe, which isn't common out here.

I third aqua adventures. If you're looking for a fun trip, see if she'll take you around Point Lomo, from the port of San Diego to Mission Bay.
A fourth vote for Aqua Adventures|

Good equipment, Jen's knowledge, reasonable rates, and a great on-water location.

IF you are up to it the Baja Paddle Fest would be great. I can highly recommend the trips to Todos Santos or the Baja sea caves. Unclear on the webpage when they go. But both are trips you would never forget.

Believe me, I want to go. In fact, I had set aside money and planned to attend. The same day I was printing out the registration forms and other info was when I hurt my back and hip.
Sorry to hear you had an accident...|

Hope things improve quickly .
It's like cars|

Another paddler was lamenting how despite his excellent cardio health his skeletal parts were getting creaky. I had been noticing the same thing with myself and joked that we were like cars or trucks with good engines but suspensions getting (ab)used into an early demise.
if you can make it, hope 2 see you there|

I am going for the first weekend.
It's a nice arrangement, the weekends|

Allows the southern CA residents to bite off a chunk around their work schedules, which in turn (I think) allows the festival a better chance of being financially viable. I hope so.
actually coming from NorCal|

I am probably driving down (which is 8+ hours from here to San Diego) and my girlfriend is flying in.
