XCEL 5/4 Powerseam On Sale – $424 w/ Free Shipping & No Sales Tax
As I’ve mentioned in previous rants, I love XCEL Wetsuits for Nor Cal cold water surfing (48F – 52F). I’ve been in the market for a new wetsuit recently, but don’t quite have the funds to pull the trigger yet. However, if I find the right suit on sale this cyber Monday (tomorrow), I might just put it on a credit card. I was perusing around today and found what might be the best deal ever at Seaside surf shop. The new XCEL Powerseam 5/4 is on sale there for $424 (normally $530), with Free Shipping & No Sales Tax. I love supporting local surf shops when I can, but no one even has these powerseam suits in stock up here on the north coast. In my defense, I did recently buy new gloves and booties at a local shop.
A few weeks back at a secret mysto spot on the lost coast, I saw one of these suits in person(on person) for the first time. It was a pretty big day and I didn’t feel like bothering this dude I didn’t know about his suit while we were trying to manage slabby overhead surf on a rocky point break. I tried to catch him afterwards, but he was long gone. Today was the first time I’ve seen the XCEL powerseam on sale, let alone in my size. While it looks a bit Tron-ish with those white seams, I bet it’s an awesomely warm and comfy wetsuit. I have a feeling I’ll know first hand in a week or two.
