Bill and Diane Staggs, founders of VW Surfari, make it easy to live out your endless-summer fantasies. Their Costa Mesa, California, company rents camper vans, including classic Volkswagens, perfect for road-tripping in search of waves along the California coast. Choose from a Winnebago pop-top to a Westfalia TinTop; some vans feature revamped interiors and come stocked with camping equipment such as propane stoves and potable-water tanks.

If a DIY surf safari sounds like too much work, the couple also offers organized trips—including women-only learn-to-surf getaways in San Onofre and a camping tour of the Eastern Sierra.

Rentals from $169/day; 3-day trips from $599.
