Everyone in the store was wearing a mask, except the clerk at the cash register. How rude and discourteous with a world wide pandemic killing millions. I asked him - do you have a mask? He said - yeah. But didn't put it on. This is the first business here in central Florida I have encountered where the employees don't wear masks.

Don't think you'll be saving any money here . They have a nice variety of shirts and hats and all sorts of beach wear accessories. the staff can be a bit grouchy at times . I like the variety but let me assure you that you can go to Walmart down the road and save at least 50% over their prices. Even Ron Jon is better on their prices for higher quality hats and shirts . Shop around its to your benefit. Most of the staff are helpful but I can see that the management only cares about the revenue and not the customer they won't see again. They have several stores all over Cocoa Beach area and some under different names but its all the same soup Go to Walmart. Walgreens Winn Dixie Publix or Ron Jons or next door to the Cocoa Beach Surf company

This store is close to the beach and pier if you forget beach toys, lotion, etc. It has typical beach store tourist items, like swimsuits, t-shirts, and beach towels. We had an issue with a coupon not being accepted. I got the impression that their policies are based on knowing their customers are one-time only visitors. On a positive note, their prices are low and they offer deals on buying multiples.

After purchasing 5 items for $171.00 and paying cash, I returned to my condo to find that wife had just purchased 3 of the 5 items. Upon returning to the store across the street... within 20 minutes of the original purchase, I was told that they could not provide a refund. I could only even exchange the items at that point in time.
I asked for in an store credit or gift card for use at a later date and was denied.
The only way return these duplicated and unused items was to do an even exchange for other instore items at that time. They were forcing me purchase unneeded items.

After discussing this with the store manager and their Corporate Manager, they both declined to work with me on the return. I strongly recommend all Cocoa Beach residents and guests to not shop at a store that does not provide any customer service. There are many other stores that sell the same sort of items, that care about their customers.

My wife and I are retired and live in Orlando for the past 20 years and go to visit Cocoa Beach often as we lived there for 13 years in the 80s. We have stopped at Beach Wave several times as my wife likes to shop for stuff. She purchased towels but they really were beach mats. She bought 4 for $80 and at checkout the printer for the receipt was out of paper so we got no receipt. I was fine with that as I never use or really return stuff. My mistake. After she brought them home she realized it is not what she wanted. Oh well. We never removed any tags and put them back in the bag. We went to the Beach a few weeks later and stopped in and asked for just an exchange and did not ask for our money back. They refused said no receipt no return. They could clearly see these were never used still in bag they came in I tried to explain we never got a receipt and could show them my credit card charge but NOPE. Extremely shocked and very disappointed taking advantage of 2 retired adults on Social Security. Lousy customer service. Be warned. They just lost all our business which is stupid in my opinion but they don't care the manager was rude probably paid by the hour not their business.

Horrible customer service. I've been shopping for 10 years. The items are cheap but the kids like them. Exchange only but that's not a problem for me. I understand that policy. We had two items that ended up duplicates. I asked the manager if we could exchange them (tags on and 1 day later with receipt). She was rude and said "I've heard your story a million times honey. You can exchange that for the same exact item darlin'. I bet you got that some place else. I'm not interested in hearing that same story again"!

I'm sorry to have had such a terrible experience. I walked right across the street to another store that I have also shopped for a decade. Gina, is a terrible "manager" and certainly doesn't give customer service. I will never go back. I walked across the street and spent $100 and got great service at Ron Jons.

My fiancé, 2 daughters and I are staying a hotel right next door and decided to get some souvenirs here. We each got a shirt.
When we got back to the hotel room, my fiancé questioned why there were 3 items at $12.99.
We had 1 shirt($16.99), 2($12.99) and 1($9.99) and there was another charge for $12.99. The receipts do not have the item description- only a price.
My fiancé went back to get his $12.99 back, literally 5 minutes later, and the employee(bleach blonde hair) was very rude to him and questioned if he brought back everything we purchased when we were JUST there and DID bring back all of the other items we purchased.
She eventually refunded the money and when he asked for a new receipt, she refused and said she would have to do a “re-ring”. The customers in line were shocked.
Why would we spend $100 on stuff just to lie about her scanning an item twice to get $12.99 back?

Spend your money elsewhere.
We definitely won’t be stopping here on our annual visit to Cocoa Beach & will certainly suggest our friends & clients steer clear.

I would give more than five stars if I could. Best store I've been to in quite a while. Not the typical tourists stores where every little thing cost like a night in a hotel. They actually offer a huge selection of anything and everything for the beach, I found wonderful souvenirs and even toys for my kids for less than half of what I expected to pay! I appreciate good quality and I got that too. Thanks Beachwave.

I have been in several shops in Cocoa Beach looking at hats and sunglasses. No mirrors. Must be something I don't know about marketing. A secret maybe as to why no mirrors.
Not Ron Jon's they know what they're doing.
