Adventure IO and Park Hyatt Aviara’s partnership provides unique opportunities for guests to learn how to shape their own surfboard, hone their watersports skills and explore Southern California with local experts.

SAN DIEGO, CA, (TK 2021) - Adventure IO (AIO) is taking customer engagement to the next level through a new partnership with Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa, the AAA Five-Diamond and Forbes Five-Star luxury resort located in Carlsbad, California, just minutes from San Diego’s world-famous beaches. AIO, the proprietary technology platform offering Adventure experiences led by professional athletes, brand ambassadors, and local experts, has partnered with Park Hyatt Aviara to curate one-of-a-kind Adventures hosted by some of Adventure IO’s top professional athletes and guides, including wakeboarding legend Shawn Watson and lululemon™ surfing ambassador Chris Clark.

Clark’s Adventure offers guests a one-of-a-kind opportunity to design and hand-shape their own custom surfboard in his mobile shaping studio, set up on the Park Hyatt Aviara grounds. Watson will host private wakesurfing and wakeboarding experiences for a select number of guests on nearby Carlsbad Lagoon, complete with all the latest gear from the world’s leading wake brand, Liquid Force. Other Adventures include private surfing instruction on Moonlight Beach, e-bike tours of the quaint towns along the Pacific Coast Highway, and a coastal tide pool excursion where the entire family will get an insider’s view of California marine life.

“Adventure IO was founded to allow ordinary people to experience the extraordinary Adventures top athletes and brand ambassadors enjoy every day,” said Jeff McKee, President of Adventure IO. “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with the Park Hyatt Aviara - it’s located in the heart of one of the world’s top outdoor destinations, and we know that guests are in for a truly unique experience whenever they book an Adventure with the Park Hyatt Aviara.”
