Sell, swap or donate your old board and help send a kid to surf or skate camp this summer.


What is Board Swap?

Board Swap was started as a “spring cleaning” event to get rid of your old boards and stock up on your new ones for your summer surf trips. Recycle your old boards, donate them for a child in need, or upgrade them and get paid.

What Can I Sell?

At board swap all boards are accepted. Since, typically we can be a little picky with consignment boards….this is a chance for you to get rid of any board not matter how old or beat up it is. We also allow kayaks, wetsuits, wakeboards, skateboards, skimboards, cameras, housings, and almost anything water sports or action sports related. Each item is subject to a $3.50 listing donation if you print your form and fill it out before you arrive at the Island Water Sports or $5 when you fill out your form in the store.
100% of the listing donation will go towards surf and skate camp scholarships.

How Do I Sell My Items?

  • Drop off your items May 10th – May 17th. We will not accept any items the day of Board Swap.
  • All items are subjected to a Listing Donation. Download the contract here now to save you time. You must fill out one contract for each item listed.
  • All items must be picked up by May 20th. Any unsold items not picked up by May 20th will be donated.
  • Island Water Sports is not responsible for lost leashes, fins or any damages to your items.

How Much Will I Get Paid?

The commission on consignment sales will be based on the agreed upon sale price. Checks and donation letters may be picked up any time after May 20th.

Your Three Options:

  1. Get paid in store credit and get 90% of any sales made.
  2. Get paid by check and get 85% of any sales made
  3. Donate any item not sold and receive a donation letter for 100% of the value.

What is a Sample Sale?

Sample Sale 9 AM -3 PM on May 18th at Island Water Sports

Sample sales occur when a clothing sales rep unloads their samples that they have already shown their retail clients. This year shop brands like Salty Crew, Stance, Electric, O’Neill Womens, RVCA, Quiksilver, Roxy, Vans,  Simbi, and many more. The sample sale is held in the Island Water Sports parking lot. Find your favorite surf and skate companies underneath their branded tent. Each company will be giving back 15% of all sales for camp scholarships.
Island Water Sports will also have huge discounts on new and used surf and stand up paddle boards, apparel, wetsuits, shoes and more. Also, take advantage of Buy One Get One Free on all clearance items that day only.
  1. Arrive early to get the best selection. Reps usually only have one of each item and their inventory goes fast.
  2. Bring a friend or two to help you hoard items inside the sales tent while you are digging through the racks. Divide and conquer. Two is always better than one.
  3. Bring cash. Many of the reps do not take credit or debit cards.
  4. Since it’s Earth day, bring your own bag and get a special coupon from IWS. So shop smart and save some turtles & trees.
  5. Do not forget to take advantage of the Buy One Get One Free on all clearance and special in-store deals.
