StayNSurf is a community marketplace for listing and renting spaces in surf destinations.


StayNSurf is an online marketplace for renting spaces in surf destinations.  Founded and built in 2013 by Elon University Entrepreneurship and General Assembly graduate Phil Manning, StayNSurf makes it easy, affordable, and community-based to list and rent spaces.  Some of the key features include:

  • Listing spaces for free - anything from a couch to a castle.
  • Surf destinations from around the world.
  • Online messaging system for hosts and guests to communicate
  • Rating and review platform
  • Safe, secure payment systems that hold onto the hosts money until 24 hours after the guest has checked in.

We have a web product, now we need your help to get it out!

What We Need & What You Get

For the countless surf destinations around the world(discovered and yet found), we need marketing materials and global advertising to get people to list their spaces.  Our web application is built and ready for release.  Our budget will give us the opportunity to build the mobile end of our application and market to popular surf destinations around the world.  This will give you, our community, the ability to search for surf around the globe!

We need your help for:

  • Promotional materials and advertising funds
  • Mobile application development
In return, we'll give you the first batch of some of these materials and a special shout out for our first year on our website, on a 'Special Thanks' page.

StayNSurf's Impact

We've partnered with 1% for the Planet to give 1% of all our sales revenue to the Surfrider Foundation.  We know StayNSurf is going to be a successful surf-travel community and at the backbone of this community is going to be our contributions to global surf communities.


Other Ways You Can Help

We understand if you can can't help us out for the time being but there are some things you can do to help our brand.

On behalf of the StayNSurf team, I'd like to personally thank anyone that can help StayNSurf become the forefront leader in surf travel.  We have the product, now you, the community, are what can make StayNSurf the easiest, cheapest, and most-fun way of surf travel.
Thank you!
