A and J Limousine chauffeurs intrepid travelers, tours, partiers, and wedding groups through the Santa Barbara area in the spacious, entertainment-enhanced environs of its large limousine fleet, with packages ranging in price from $100 to around $800. Birthday celebrations and bachelor partiers slugging Kool-Aid can usher in the event in the cavernous Super Stretch limo, an elegant, elongated vessel that comfortably entertains 10–14 passengers. Large groups and small countries can opt for the 14- to 16-capacity Lincoln Navigator limo, an enormous entertainment center on wheels that raises a full-chrome mirrored ceiling above passengers and lays a lighted dance floor below them, accompanying the heart-thumping music blossoming from 20 sub-woofed speakers. Airport-bound ascenders stretch their legs in the corporate sedan, a Town Car driven by a professional, fully uniformed driver who is prompt, punctual, and wearing a second, smaller hat underneath his visible one.
At Santa Barbara Seals Surf School, a Surfing USA accredited program, instructors teach the art of wave riding during private lessons, after school classes, and 10-week camps. Lessons can mix practice on land with time in the water, and cover a wide range of skills, from mounting a board to catching a wave without yelling “Hey, wait!” During camps, beginners spend most of their time learning to ride waves, while more advanced students also travel to select surf spots, and even get a chance to tour the famous Sex Wax factory and visit local board shapers to learn about the history of the surf industry in Santa Barbara.
