Rip Curl Wetsuits and Channel Islands Surfboard Demo Revel in Fun Surf!

The Rip Curl Wetsuits and Channel Islands Surfboards Demo Tour made its most recent stop this past Saturday, September 8th at River Jetties in Newport Beach, CA. The skies were sunny and the waves were fun, producing 2-3 foot rippable peaks. Eager surfers showed up with the opportunity to test-drive the best wetsuits and surfboards on the market.


Although the water was still warm, surfers gave two thumbs up as they demoed the newest Flashbomb+ wetsuit.  Last years original Flashbomb was awarded the 2011 SIMA Image Awards 'Wetsuit of the Year.' This year's upgraded Flashbomb+ has new titanium airloc neoprene, E3+ flex panels to provide insane flexibility and Rip Curl stitchless seam technology. These features paired with Flash Lining prove the Flashbomb+ is the ultimate in wetsuits.


A surprise guest visit from RC and CI team rider Taylor Knox gave surfers something extra to watch in the water as he tore apart the forgiving conditions. Taylor was demoing his own new CI model with a four-fin set up and it sure looked good!


Be sure to check out the last stop of the Rip Curl Wetsuits and Channel Island Surfboards Demo Tour Saturday, September 15th 9AM – 1 PM at El Porto, Manhattan Beach.
