About Us


We are an authorized dealer of everything we sell. You get your full manufaturer's warranty, when you shop with HBCSurf. We don't sell seconds or knock-offs - ever!


HBCSurf is a mom and pop core surf shop. When you shop with us, you are shopping local. We have almost the same employees today as when we started.

We have items you won't find at other online surf shops or a lot of brick and mortar shops and we're proud of what we have for you. Our items may be limited in numbers, but we carry quality.

Late in the fall of 2001, the idea for Hostel Board Company came into being. Since then, technology has grown and online shopping has grown with it. HBC6/HBCSURF are online shopping carts that have all the newer features you've grown to expect with online shopping.

Everyone at HBCSurf surfs, skates or and ssurfs and skates. We know our products well and are dedicated to the brands we carry: O'Neill, Quiksilver, Nixon, Hurley, RVCA, Vans, Brixton, Mad Hueys and more.


Customer service doesn't stop when your package arrives. If you have a warranty issue with any item, let me know. We keep all receipts available to you and are an authorized online retailer for all brands we carry.

For years, we've been helping people get the right items, at good prices and shipped quickly to their homes. We're proud and fortunate to have our customers and we think you'll be happy to become a member of the HBC OnLine community. 

Call us, whenever you have questions. Either myself, Phil or Angelo will be taking your call - there's only 2 of us. Our phones are often busy, because we take the time, with each customer, to ensure you get the service you deserve. Sometimes, that means you might get the answering machine, but if you leave a message, with your phone number, we'll usually call back within 30 minutes or as soon as we can. We are a small shop, less than 5 employees, we can't always get to the phone when you call, but we will get you what you need.

Help us keep prices low and still get high quality gear and leave a message. You'll save money, get what you need and be glad you did! 

Maybe you've heard of us and maybe you haven't, but you'll be glad you did.


I get asked a lot, "how can you have such low prices" and it's because we're a small shop, we're not spending our money on advertising and while we would like to be millionaires, I think it's more important to live a life you love and have the time to enjoy it whether you're in the water or spending time with family and friends. 

To all of you, from all of us at HBCSurf - Thank you and Happy Shopping!
