We are in the process of designing our logo. I'm not very good graphic design so I put up a "contest" on Freelancer to fix up our current idea, or create a new one entirely. if anyone on here is decent at that sort of thing and wants to make a few bucks, put in your entry here:

The other one is good, it's just too close to played out themes like Endless Summer and such. Sampling parts of established branding that the mainstream is already familiar with can be very effective and simple to do with some creativity, but it's good to avoid themes that are played out to avoid a generic feel.
You can have 2-3 different logos that are all related. You'll need a word mark logo for apparel, signage and letterhead, a logo that's web-ready (not too complex but can be rasterized/pixelated) and one that's simple and vectored (composed of lines and curves and can be enlarged or reduced infinitely). Professional graphic design firms may have other standards for their logo suites, but these are what's worked for my experiences.
Good luck with the marketing and project! Looks good! PM me if you'd like to talk further.

As a graphic designer, I would say that you are not going to get much quality for $40...

Thanks! yea we really like the idea of the palm/wave thing. this is our original (attached). but it needs some work. the cleaned up version that someone submitted i think is too smooth clean, i like the textured clean look of the mainstream one, would work well on t-shirt, coozie, biz card, sticker. but i think our palm wave stands out and were pretty stoked on it, so were definitely going to try to stick to it
thanks for the feedback

Talk to the GD's and be willing to trade up to spend more on your logo/marketing budget and less on a lighting fixture or two. Business is all about delivering the need to have and less of the nice to have. Dealmakers and dealbrakers are your livelihood.

I like the one on the right more than the wave/palm tree combo. The wave/palm tree is a cool idea, but I feel like it might be to cartoonish or something like that. I feel like the other one just looks a lot more professional. They are both good though.
