About Shopping & Shipping

A message from City Of Surf:  Shop with aloha. Find what you need while helping someone in need.

Let this be your personal gearhead and value source. The lineup ranges across brand new super discounted deals, new and used business, casual, and sports attire & accessories, plus big savings on useful everyday gear. Contact us (email) if you are hunting for a specific something that is not listed yet here.

No surprises. We do our best to provide as much reasonable pertinent product details as possible. When available, bonus gifts are added to your order.

Competitive prices average 50-80% below MSRP (US). Enjoy and share the aloha.

Clear conditions are outlined here and in every item description. The photos and product details aim to be specific and clear. Stock photos may be used for item recognition. Actual item photos are provided, and may be adjusted for clarity. You are encouraged to contact us, if you need further details on condition, use, care and storage.

Item stock is usually limited to one of each, unless otherwise noted. Item replacements, returns, refunds and exchanges are available only when arranged with City Of Surf in advance of your purchase. Exceptions are held for purchases damaged or lost by the shipper, where USPS/UPS/FedEx is able to help us issue a recovery via the claims process. 

Cleanliness is a given. All items are professionally cleaned, maintained and properly stored to the best of our ability in a clean, pet-friendly, smoke-free, controlled environment. Only perfume-free, dye-free cleaning agents are used, because it makes sense to keep products as useable as possible for as long as possible. We are very much against the use of harsh dry-cleaning chemicals including fabric softeners that deteriorate performance materials.

Feel so good! Together, we are making it good! No need to donate — Know that you find what you need while helping someone in need. 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. City of Surf donates monthly to select charities, rescuers & do-gooders. You are likely here because of your own aloha! Stay tuned for updates on our list of beneficiaries, or contact us to include ones you support. 

Shipping is included because we can, and it helps! Ever heard of aloha? Shipping is free in the contiguous US. Note some exceptions (like the item minimums on Garage Sale specials) clearly stated in each item’s description. Please enjoy and share the aloha!

“Why waste a perfectly useful box,” said every cat ever. Like some merchandise here, Packaging will be reused whenever possible. Reducing is our first answer to minimizing our own impact. Make it your answer too!

Shipping is via USPS within 10 business days of complete payment receipt. Business days include Mondays to Fridays, excluding US Federal and California state holidays.
