Test Centre

Our moto is 'We never sell the wrong board to the right person'. So to back this up we offer a full hardware Test Centre at our second branch Cayton Bay Surf Shop,just 2 miles south of Scarborough.

Based above the beach at Cayton Bay we offer all day parking for £2, hot and cold drinks, changing rooms, toilets and free hot showers year round giving you the perfect opportunity to try before you buy. Surfable at all stages of tide and one of the few high tide breaks in the area, Cayton Bay is one of the most consistent breaks on the coast and also one one of the UK's premier beach breaks.

We offer an extensive range of products to for you to try and are the official test center for Rip Curl Wetsuits, O'neill wetsuits, FCS fins and Future fin's. We have a selection of demo wetsuits for trial to help you make up your mind before spending your hard earned cash.

With our FCS test centre you can try out various different set ups free of charge, such as the Stretch quads and signature series like the goods, and Kelly Slaters diverse range - "change your fins...change your surfing."
It's much the same with the massive selection on our future fin tree with all the latest designs from high performance Tokoro thrusters to the amazing Sea Shepherd, a light weight twin set up ridden and endorsed by David Rastovich. To help you decide each fin has information on rider height and weight, the type of surf and surfing they are designed for plus the type of board they are best suited to. This should help you narrow down a few to try out free of charge before buying the preferred set up...

We are an official O'Neill test center and have a selection of suits to try out including the Psycho Freak 4.5mm, the women's 6/5/4mm O'Neill heat, the men's entry level 5/3mm Epic and the fully sealed 5/4mm Mutant which includes a removable hood.
We also offer a range of Ripcurl demo suits to trial including the 5/3mm Dawn Patrol, 5/4mm Insulator with removable hood and the 5/3mm Elasto with the E3 neoprene currently one of the most flexible suits on the market.
The demo suits allow you to make sure of that perfect fit in and out of the water that really helps both comfort and warmth and is the ideal way to help you decide on your next suit it makes perfect sense to "try before you buy."
