I must apologize first off for the lack of pictures, but my digital camera broke about three weeks ago.
I got this set today in an exchange that I sent in and I am very glad I did. This is the first beach themed set I've ever gotten. I should have gotten the cabana and stuff. It all would have gone nicely with Jess's tree.
Anyway, there are pink and gray swim flippers, snorkel gear. These remind me of Kailey's snorkel equipment but the colors are more muted light green and pink and gray. Little bit of purple thrown in.
The beach towel is bright pink with blue and green flowers and yellow/light green stripes with American Girl in white letters.
There is a set of purple sunglasses. (Just like the red ones from the Beachside outfit)
The surfboard is the best part. It's heavy and very realistic. Purple, aqua, light green and white with a purple stripe down the middle. The wrist band is velcro for the doll's wrist and connected to the plastic lead. The stickers are all purple, yellow, pink, blue and white and consistent with the Hawaii theme on the island vacation outfit.
I recently got this new from ebay and it is great. We have Kailey's beach snorkel set and boogie board so if you are familiar with those then you pretty much know what this set will be like. Very cute colors, I love the sunglasses, the set also comes with removable hawaiian decals for the surfboard. The towel is just like the larger girl's version and it is so sweet. The surfboard is the most impressive item - it is heavy and sturdy and slick. I will post photos later - I haven't taken any yet. You do get a lot for your $$ considering it is ag.

Pros: Cute, lots of pieces for what you pay Cons: The surfboard is very heavy. It's good that it's substantial, but there is no way the doll can pose with it standing up without leaning against a wall or something.
That being said, I do love this set. Some pictures:
