The innovation for the retail vending machine was derived from a number of experiences:
1. Customers needed surfing basics when they could not be serviced by an online or retail format,
2. Early morning and weekend runs to the coast or last minute before a morning flight to Bali can now be accommodated by the vending machine.
3. Also at peak retail times, there is an opportunity to bypass the store customer service representatives if you are just after surf wax or a leash.
Contactless retailing was the silver lining presented to Melbourne Surf during the 2020 covid pandemic. The vending machine made a debut at our Thornbury store (Raleigh St side) and features surf wax, wax combs, ding repairs, sun screen, leashes, lock systems and skate bearings / trucks. With planning permits now being passed the Newport store will also include the now infamous surf / skate vending machine.
