The Debut - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In this episode Seth, Ryan and Kirsten arrive at the country club in the Range Rover to get the boys ready for Cotillion. In the next scene we see Sandy with the surfboards in the back of the Range Rover as he has just come home and Jimmy arrives to apologise, soon after we go back to the country club where Seth and Ryan are trying on jackets and meet up with Marissa, Summer and Luke, proving that the Range Rover should still be there, not back home.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ryan and Sandy leave to take Ryan back home, it is supposedly the morning. But as they leave, the sun can be seen over Marissa's shoulder, which is the west (because her back is to the ocean). Since the sun sets in the west, it can't be morning.

Continuity mistake: At the part where Kirsten brings Ryan and Seth to help set up the hall, Seth starts to blow up balloons with helium.

The L.A. - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: The phone message that Ryan leaves on Luke's voicemail is different to what he originally said, which is "I want to make sure you took care of it. Take care of it," but the message recorded is, "I'm just calling to make sure you took care of it. Take care of it." Also the background sounds from the club - the music, people talking, etc, are missing.

The Escape - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Marissa leaves the bar, after downing the pills and tequila, she leaves her bag, but presumably Ryan found it. Then, when Ryan sees Marissa down the alley he runs to her, but his hands are empty, yet, in the next shot, where he kneels over her body, Marissa's bag is in his hand and he puts it down beside her.
