Information about SecondSurf


Why did we set up Second Surf?

We’ve had plenty of first hand experience in trying to find good quality second hand water sports equipment at affordable prices, as well as trying to sell our used kit. We realised we had all faced very similar issues when trying to buy and sell second hand kit online. 

SecondSurf is our solution to these problems:  A one-stop-shop to buy and sell used watersports equipment online. SecondSurf will give buyers the best chance to find the perfect kit in the right location, while sellers (whether individuals, shops or schools) will have much broader reach, bringing in more views and quicker sales. 

Our Story

SecondSurf was founded by three friends who grew up by the sea in Dorset, UK. Most of our free time was spent either in or on the water, and we all developed an interest in a number of water sports and activities. After seeing first hand the direct effects of issues including pollution and global warming, we also became interested in conservation and want to help protect our coastal environments.

How will SecondSurf ‘Support our Oceans’?

As an online community focused on recycling and reusing old equipment, SecondSurf has clear environmental benefits. However, we want to go further to give back to the oceans that have given us so much fun! That’s why we have made a commitment to donate at least 25% of our profits to ocean protecting charities. 

We’ve partnered up with Surfers Against Sewage, supporting this fantastic marine conservation charity in their mission to protect the UK’s unique coastal environments. We’re always looking for other worthy causes to support so please do get in touch to see if we can help you too!
