Sports Basement has everything you need at reasonable prices. The store at Crissy Field has many water sports gear available for purchase or for rent.

Great service and great idea. We rented bike to cycle the Golden Gate Bridge. On payment we received $70 store credit for sports basement which we used on trip. Bikes were in good condition and staff very friendly and helpful.
