A Friend in Marina del Rey


Commitment, tireless dedication and passion are three moral values that can be used to describe Action Watersports business owner Russ Carrington. He awakes early every morning, mounts his bike and navigates to the Marina to work. Once the key turns into 4144 Lincoln Boulevard a little piece of history is opened. After inheriting the original Dewey Weber factory store in the early 60’s, Action Watersports has remained a steady backdrop of the Marina Del Rey neighborhood.

The self-proclaimed aquaholic couldn’t stay away from the water if he tried. Born and raised in the Marina, Russ attributes his love for water to his love for the community. After graduating from USC’s Business school he sold yachts in the Marina as a way of life. Then he happened to stumble upon the hidden treasure of watersports and as they say – the rest is history.

Fast-forward 30 years and Russ hasn’t slowed down at all. On any given day you can catch him giving demo programs or hosting events on the water. Not far behind him, you will find his beautiful wife Lisa and their two beautiful daughters Alexa and Amber, who also help out at the shop. Action Watersports operates as the perfect family affair and a true gem to the Marina del Rey community.
