Sharon and Tanya wanted to take up surfing this winter on Vancouver Island. Sharon tried with her summer kiteboarding wetsuit at Jordan River and was too cold. Looking at new winter wetsuits in town the prices were $550+. Then we noticed that Promotion had women’s winter surf wetsuits on sale for $216USD. All of our kiteboarding wetsuits are from Promotion, a small company in Hood River OR, and we are very happy with the fit, quality and functionality of them – plus they have great customer service. So they ordered a couple up. With the strong Canadian Dollar the price for both was less than the cost of 1 comparable new suit locally. After try them on the girls were happy with the fit and are now scheming up a plan to take surfing lessons at Tofino BC with a girl’s surf school called Surf Sisters.
If you are a lady looking for a warm 6mm/4mm hooded surf wetsuit check out Promotion’s sale. They actually have the same suit in men’s XL if you are a bigger guy and want one. You’ll notice I’m wearing a hooded surf wetsuit in my last few surf related posts. I got a Xcel 6/5/4mm suit used for $150 at a surf school in Tofino. If you are in the area the Tofino surf schools are clearing out their 2010 wetsuits and boards to make room for the new 2011 stuff and deals can be had.
