Online version of store offers deep inventory & core shop vibe
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 15 April, 2015 - 58 Surf, the legendary company located in Peniche and Ericeira, has announced its expansion through Europe via the digital platform 58surf.com
As part of their commitment to provide the same quality goods and services of their physical stores, 58surf.com wants to remain linked to that retail store vibe.
Their new online entity offers more than one thousand stocked boards, a great variety of technical equipment, the best wetsuit brands (Billabong, Xcel, Rip Curl, O'neill and Hurley), as well as offering textiles, accessories and an extensive set of specialized services.
The founder of the 58 Surf, Ivo Nisa, created the online store design and was sure to include all the niceties and attention to detail necessary so that this project would mirror what the 58 Surf space is - a place where surfers feel right at home.
"58 Surf has evolved naturally and the online store is another step in this evolutionary process,” says Nisa. “We always sold for Europe and now the online store will make the entire process easier for supply an demand.”
Artur Fernandes, Retail General Manager, explains why they took 58 Surf online. “We have a clear indication that there is a void in the European marketplace for an online entity such as this, and we believe that 58 Surf will fill this void,” says Fernandes.
“We will always have as a primary objective the sustainability and authenticity of the brand and we will continue to evolve commercially.”
