SurfersList is the ultimate online solution for buying and selling new and used surf gear. Our website is designed to help you find and sell your next surfboard, SUP paddle, kite, or windsurf sail.
SurfersList connects website members (the "Members") to facilitate the sale of surf equipment (the "Surf Listing(s)", "Surf Equipment", "Listings", or "Item(s)") between Members. SurfersList provides a venue for Members to create, showcase / advertise, and sell Surf Listings directly to other Members. This website contains Listings that are member-generated. SurfersList facilitates the purchasing of surf equipment between website Members. This may or may not include the the transfer of funds.
All Listings are supplied by the Members. SurfersList only lists information about Items for other Members to browse, view, ask questions about, and potentially purchase directly on the website or arrange for transfer and sale off the website. SurfersList has no control over the truth or accuracy of the Surf Listings, the ability of Members to sell Items or the ability of Members to pay for Items. SurfersList is a marketplace venue that facilitates sales of Items. SurfersList never owns and does not transfer legal ownership of the Surf Listings. Returns must be coordinated between members. Refunds must be coordinated with PayPal and can be initiated by submitting a dispute resolution following the PayPal Purchase Protection instructions.
If a Surf Listing is sold and/or otherwise becomes unavailable (e.g. exhuasted supply), SurfersList requires that the Member disable or delete the Listing. SurfersList reserves the right to cancel any Member Account in the event the Member fails to earnestly comply with this request. In the event that a Member purchases an unavailable Surf Listing, the listing Member will issue a full refund to the buying Member for that item.
Members must register an account ("Account Registration") with SurfersList in order to make full use of the Website Services. Members must register an account (the "Member Account") to track order status, create a wishlist, view order history, and more. Members must register an account (the "Member Account") as part of the Member Registration process and to list surf equipment for sale (the "Member Account").
The Website includes a Member Index and individual webpages (the "Member Profile Page" or "Member Profile") for each Member who completes the Member Registration and activates a Member Profile Page. Information collected and stored ("Member Info") in a Member Account for the Member Profile Page may include a Profile Image, Profile Name / Title, Profile Description, PayPal Account E-mail Address, Location (includes Country, State / Region, and City / Location), and Social links (may include personal Website url, Facebook page, Twitter page, Pinterest page, Google+ page). Member Info is provided and approved by the Members during Member Profile Page activation. All of this information is fully disclosed on the SurfersList website. Any and all potential Members and Website visitors can view the Member Profile Page; login is NOT required.
Listings are created by members who have activated a Member Profile. Both new and used surf equipment may be listed for sale. Listing type can be "Classified" or "Buy Now". "Buy Now" listings can be purchased by other members. "Classified" ad listings cannot be purchased on the website. Members must record a PayPal email address in their account to post "Buy Now" listings. New listings are posted immediately and expire in 45 days. Listings renew automatically when updated and can also be renewed manually.
Please read Anatomy of a Listing for more details.
SurfersList does NOT retain any exclusive right to list and sell the Surf Listings. Members retain the right to sell their surf equipment to others on any other additional venues that they so decide.
Members retain the right to sell their surf equipment at any other location!
An Member may cancel his/her Member Account with SurfersList and the owner of the Member Account may close his/her account with SurfersList any time by notifying the Website by e-mail. SurfersList will cancel the Member Account / close the Member Account as soon as possible. All Member Info will be removed from the Website.
