Know what to expect, without any surprises. We do our best to provide as much reasonable pertinent product details as possible.

No minimums. Ever heard of aloha? Shipping is free in the contiguous US because we are currently able to help.  Please enjoy and share the aloha.

Competitive prices. Prices are listed as is, averaging 50-80% below MSRP (US). We do not believe in so-called “fees.” If the price says $19.99, that is all. Please enjoy and share the aloha.

Clear conditions. We do not edit our photos to hide details or make pretty. We may use stock photos for purposes of item recognition. We provide our own photos in the item details, and we only adjust for clarity’s sake. Our product details are specific and informative, so you SEE what you are getting. We encourage you to contact us, if you need further details.

Clean. All items are professionally cleaned and properly stored to the best of our ability, in a clean, pet-friendly, smoke-free, controlled environment. Almost all items are exposed to perfume-free, dye-free cleaning agents because we like to keep our products as useable as possible.

Feel really good!  You’re doing something good! City of Surf benefits from and is supported by warm-hearted individuals who support rescue animals, and strive to reduce our planetary impact by reusing & repurposing where we can. We get that reducing is our first answer to minimizing our own impact. Make it your answer too!
