I'm a local and I want to love this place, but will NEVER go back. The tall Brazilian woman can be impatient, bored, and unpleasant. On a few occasions she has been borderline rude and truly unhelpful (and pushy). She seems impatient and really does appear to care. One one occasion she was actually kinda nice.
I spent over $600 on wetsuits, body boards, and equipment. She was a bit pushy and salesy, but not too bad. She convinced me to buy a more expensive wetsuit than I was planning to buy. I believe that the guy helped me with the fit. He was fairly insistent that the large was the best fit, even though I always wear medium. After some conversation they convinced me that it was the right size and I trusted their experience. As it turns, the suit leaks through the top and I get a cold rush of ocean water down my back everytime I get water over my head.
A couple of weeks later the guy told me to bring it back and try it on for him (seemed fair). A week later I came back with the suit, but he was not there. The Brazilian woman was talking on the phone--not business--and made me wait for 5 minutes. During her conversation she barked at me in front of other customers that my wetsuit was dropping sand on her merchandise (it was really not a big deal). After she hung up, I explained the situation and before I could finish she interrupted me with a loud ""Sir, that is not possible, we NEVER sell wetsuits that are too big..."" and continued to lecture me loudly in the store. I tried hard to be nice and keep it civil, but she kept repeating, quite loudly, that I was wrong and this cannot happen (i.e. they sell wetsuits too large). She then tried to sell me a hood to cover the back of the suit. The phone range, she answered it, and I walked out quite upset. I will never go back. Later, I discovered Aquaon in San Mateo and found fantastic customer service and a much larger selection of equipment.

Ive been to most of the local shops in this area including Santa Cruze and this shop rates top! The owners are awsome when it comes to customer service. They have always made sure I had the best suit and board and always had and acurate comment on the local surf. Rental boards and suits are extremly resonable and high quality. This place looks right out of one of the Surf Mags. I would recomend this place above all others!
