Only surf shop in the area that consistently puts it's wetsuit on sale!
Nov 3, 2009
There are a ton of great surf shops in the Southbay, I've already written about one of them, ET Surfboards. Generally though, you don't get a lot of sales or discounts in from these types of stores because 1) the margins aren't very good 2) competition is fierce 3) most of these shops are run by individual owners and not large corporations. Generally speaking, Spyder surfboards doesn't have a whole lot of surfboard inventory, clothes, or surf gear in general. For the most part, what they do have is full priced and over priced if you ask me. What they do have is a lot of is wetsuits and they're one of the few stores who are willing to put those wetsuits on sale for a nice 30% discount throughout the year. I really don't recommend this place for anything else other than buying wetsuits. I've bought two wetsuits from here at 30% discount each time. Anytime you can get a discount on a wetsuit, you're in business.
I recommend Spyder surfboards if you're in the market for a wetsuit. The only trick is is that you'll have to wait out a sale to happen which they put on 2-3 times a year. This is far more frequent than any of the stores I've seen in the Southbay.
