Anyone with proper identification can rent from Outback Adventures. A current UCSD ID or a government issued ID such as a driver's license or passport can be used for identification.
Only currently enrolled students at UC schools can get student rates. Extension students do not pay UC student registration fees, so do not qualify for student rental rate.
All customers except enrolled UCSD students must leave a deposit. A deposit is a credit card imprint, signed travelers check, a check written to UC REGENTS, or cash equal to the approximate retail replacement value of the equipment rented. Your deposit will be returned to you upon return of all the equipment and payment of any and all late fees, repair and/or replacement costs.
Yes, we have a Used Gear Sale in the Fall and Spring quaters in front of the Outback Surf Shop. We have a selection of items from our rental inventory and discount on our retail items. Final selection of gear we will be selling does not happen until the day before the sale.
You may reserve any item as far in advance as you like. Reservations for equipment that requires fitting e.g., skis, snowboards, must be made in person at the Rental Shop. All other equipment can be reserved over the phone: (858) 534-0684. Reservations must be paid in full at the time they are made. All other rentals are first-come, first-served based on availability.
Rental fees must be paid in full at the time of reservation or pick up.
There are NO REFUNDS for any unused equipment or equipment not picked up for any reason.
You can rent as much equipment as you like, but advance reservations are recommended to ensure availability.
You don't. Please inspect all equipment before your trip. If you find any damage or missing parts, immediately bring it to our attention so we can help you. You are responsible for any cleaning, damage or missing parts upon return.
Please be sure to request instruction if you are the slightest bit unsure on how to use the equipment. Knowing how to use the equipment correctly will help save your time and help you avoid spending money on damage fees resulting from inexperienced use of the equipment.
