How does it work?

Bring your surf/beach-related items to check in for the sale on Thursday & Friday, Nov 2nd & 3rd, from 9am to 4pm.  We'll advise you on a sale price (think garage sale pricing if you really want to sell it!) and get it tagged and ready for sale. You don't have to be there for the sale -- we do all the selling for you!

What can I sell / what items will I find at the Swap?

  • Surfboards
  • Soft-tops
  • SUP boards & paddles
  • Boogie boards
  • Swim fins
  • Wetsuits & boots
  • Board bags
  • Anything else you might use in/around the water!

What's my cut?

Seller gets 75% of sale price in the form of a check or 100% in the form of a gift card!  All payments are issued within 2 weeks of the sale.

I have a board on consignment. Can I put it in the swap?

No need to!  All consignment boards will automatically become part of the Swap madness.  If your board sells that weekend, we'll call/email you to find out if you want the check or gift card payment option.

If I see something I want to buy on check-in day, can I buy it before the sale starts?

No, sorry. You can scope out the goods, but in fairness to everyone, we don't sell any Surf Swap items until the sale starts on Saturday morning.

How do I buy swap items?

Arrive early and queue up to score the best deals! Front gates will open at 9am Saturday, November 4th. Once you've found your treasures, bring them inside to check out as usual.  Be sure to peep the discounts on all the great new gear inside, too.  Everything will be on sale! Except new surfboards -- you know we don't ever discount those beauties.

I don't live in the area. Can I still buy Swap items?

Unfortunately we can't facilitate phone/online purchase & shipping of Surf Swap items, so you must be here in person to score those. But, we email coupon codes and early access to sale items in our online store so be sure to sign up for our mailing list (at the bottom of our homepage) to take advantage of that!

If my sale item doesn't sell when do I have to pick it up?

All unsold items must be picked up by 5pm on Sunday, November 5th.  We call all sellers whose items have sold, so if you don't hear from us, plan to pick up your stuff!

More questions?

Give us a ring at the shop -- 949-492-1085 -- 9am to 5pm every day. Or shoot us an email
