Surf Rentals FAQ

Do I need to reserve my rental?

If its just you and a few buddies you will be fine.  If you are a large group, then you may want to call us to make sure we have everything ready when you come in.

What kind of wetsuits do you rent?

Most of our rental fleet is Billabong 5/4/3 FOIL Back Zip Wetsuits, but we also carry O’Neill Wetsuits and Hotline 4/3’s.  If you are looking to buy a new wetsuit ask us about our Patagonia and O’neill demos.

Can the Rental/Demo fee go to the purchase of a new gear?

Yes, the first rental can be taken off the price, $20 off new wetsuits and $15 off new boards.

What kind of surfboards do you rent?

We rent all kinds of surfboards from soft tops to top of the line fiberglass boards.  Longboards, shortboards, funboards, you name it, we can rent it!

What surfboards do you demo?

We have a wide selection of surfboards available for demo at both of our stores.  Please see our demo surfboards page. Some of the links will take you to the boards on our website where you can see more details.  We may have other boards available than this list shows, or we may no longer have a board that is show so feel free to call to check.

Can I rent when its macking and 20 ft?

Unfortunately no, we care about your safety and do not rent when it is macking and 20ft.  Check our surf report page before you head down, or call one of our shops for up to date swell info.  Usually its safe to say if it is 10 ft or over we will not be renting.

What time should I bring my rental back?

We would be happy if you brought gear back an hour before we close, so we can clean and get it ready for the next day.

What happens if I get deep in the barrel and don’t make it out, and then my board gets snapped in half?

Unfortunately we do have to charge for broken, damaged or lost items, so please surf within your ability, and try not to run over your rental gear with your car.  We are not looking to profit from your misfortune, we just need to cover the cost to fix or replace the item.

I have a large group of people(6 or more) that want to rent, can you accommodate us?

We often rent to groups, but it is always a good idea to call in advance to make sure we have the rentals ready when you come in.  This will get you out in the water faster!

  1. Hey Carley,

    Normally you are responsible for transporting equipment. We can get you setup with racks and help with loading the boards on your vehicle to get you started. Also if you go Stand up Paddle locally we can sometimes help out with the transportation. Please call and talk to Josh if you have questions about getting transportation set up.

  2. Hey Billy,

    We rent everything related to Kiteboarding accept the kites. We do rent small trainer kites, like the B2 and B3. If you have questions about kiteboard rentals or anything kiteboarding, please call us at (503)-738-7888 and ask for Josh, the owner. The best time to reach him is in the mornings. You can try in the afternoon, but if there is wind, he is most likely out kiting. 🙂

  3. I’m looking for Kite-surfing lessons in the area. Do you guys do any kiting or know of any shops between Seaside and Manzanita (or a little to either side) that do kiting?



    • Hey Mike,

      Josh the owner here is the one to talk to about Kite Lessons, I know we have been able to find people to do lessons in the past, but I’m not sure about availability right now. Give us a ring and ask to speak with Josh, he should be able to point you in the right direction.

      – Matt
