    The Surfshop Natural High gear check!

    Who doesn’t know the salesmen that tells you, this car is as new and only been driven by an old lady?

    We at Surfshop Natural High believe that when you buy a piece of used gear, you should exactly know what you purchased and feel 100% confident to directly start riding with your gear!
    For that reason we created the: “Surfshop Natural High gear check”.
    The “gear check” is an inspection protocol which gives us the ability to rate every piece of used gear, a higher rate belongs to a product with less wear and tear.

    We at Surfshop Natural High know all the inns and outs about kite- and surf gear, this will make sure that all used items that we list online go true a detailed inspection and will be fair priced!
    We rate the value, wear and tear, repairs by following the Surfshop Natural High 17 point inspection protocol.
