“Was a great idea to rent bikes to see the island!”

Ocean Motion Surf Co
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We rented bikes for a few hours and were able to get around pretty easily! You get to know the island a little more when you're not stuck inside your car and can really see all around you! There are places to park bikes nearly everywhere you go! The company was very nice and helpful.

We tried to rent kayaks on the beach from Ocean Motion and due to bad weather bands coming through and were unable to do so. It took a while for anyone to notice we were standing there wanting to rent something so that was kind of off-putting. Once someone finally helped us, they were nice and informative.

We rented 4 adult size bikes for the day for our family. Our day of biking on the island was one of the high-lights of our week at SSI. Ocean Motion bike rental was pretty good. We called ahead and found that we did not need to make a reservation. We arrived and selected our bikes. The rental price includes a locking cable, a helmet, and a detachable handlebar basket if desired. We were only supplied 2 baskets at first and were told that they were all out and we could stop by later for more if we wanted. That was not pleasing but one more arrived before we headed out so we were good with 3. The employees were friendly. They did have a guy outside wiping the bikes down and providing some assistance when you asked him for help. The bikes were in fairly good shape but did show the wear of being rentals. We did not have any breakdowns though and we rode most of the day. The bikes do have large comfy seats but if you are riding all day and are not used to it your bum may be a little soar in the evening ;-)

They offer adult size bikes, kid size bikes, and several different bikes for multiple people or for a parent and child to ride together. They offer partial day rentals, day rentals, and I think weekly rentals.

This was a great way to see the island as there are many bike paths and you can ride on the beach when the tide is low. We parked our car in their lot for the day while we were out riding.

Friendly service. It was the very end of the high season and right before Georgia/Florida and the holidays. Bike rentals could have been better maintained (brakes oiled, seats tightened).

We had wonderful experience with our first kayaking trip. Luke was our guide. He was professional and very helpful with questions and any help we needed. We always tip when using a guide however, the other couple that went along were very rude and did not tip him at all. Keep up the good work we enjoyed the trip.

My family rented from Ocean Motion on a recent trip and the bikes clearly had not been cleaned, oiled or otherwise serviced in a long time. We cleaned the bikes as best we could with hand wipes, literally they were coated with grime. After setting out on our ride we soon realized a couple tires were nearly flat, we returned to the shop. When i explained the tires were flat i was handed a hand pump over the counter and told 'try this.' We pumped the tires up but one tire still deflated over the ride by quite a bit. As we rode the seats turned and tilted of their own will and could not be fixed with tightening. These bikes were in need of servicing - rusty bolts, chains needing oil, handlebars not square, etc. It all gave the impression of a business which doesn't care about the service it provides.
