MANLY BEACH, NSW, Feb. 25, 2015 — Shop.surf officially launches the world’s largest online marketplace for surfing and action sports gear, fashion and related products. Over 150 retailers have already signed up and the platform is looking forward to welcoming hundreds more over the coming months.
Imagine walking through a mall where every store sells only surfing related gear, fashion, home decor and other cool surf-related products; Where big retailers like Swell.com, Surfstitch and Pacsun sell right alongside branded shops like O’Neill, Hurley, Quiksilver and Roxy; Where all the small kiosks are run by boutique surf retailers and emerging brands in the surf space. That’s what Shop.surf is – it’s a place where hundreds of surf retailers (+ more in the SUP, Skate and Snow space) sell more than 50,000 products directly to surfers and surf fashion consumers. Equally, it’s a place where shoppers can simply type in the product they’re looking for and find out which retailers are selling that product for the lowest price at that very moment.
Looking for a pair of Sanuks, a Hurley wetsuit and some Ray-Ban shades? On Shop.surf you can buy directly from Sanuk, Hurley and Ray-Ban or with one click you can shop a dozen different retailers selling the same products – often for less!
Founder of Shop.surf, David McIntosh, explains: “We created Shop.surf as a way for consumers to easily find and compare surf and action sports products while offering emerging brands and retailers the opportunity to reach a larger audience. There are so many amazing surf fashion designers, surfboard shapers, emerging surf brands and retailers who’ve been looking for ways to effectively sell online. But, then they usually run into problems either in getting the technology piece right or because they don’t have the capital to compete against larger retailers. Shop.surf solves both of these issues by offering even the smallest retailers the chance to advertise and sell their products alongside major brands and by providing the technical platform on which to do it. Large and small retailers all coming together to sell through the same website is really makes Shop.surf such a vibrant marketplace. It’s a win/ win for retailers, brands and consumers alike.”
Shop.surf is currently operating in the USA, with Canada, Australia and UK sites debuting April 2015.
