TIM BESSEL: www.besselsurf.com
"Inspired by Bert Burger's Firewire line and a Ron Church photo of Corky
Carol holding his parabolic in 1963, I decided to combine yesterday's
technology with today's. And now it has come together as the best board I
have ever made." That's Tim talking about his REFLEX model- which has a
parabolic stringer (two stringers are located along the boards rails instead of
running through the center of the blank), which provides directional spring
for more responsive turns. Tim also makes a VAST line of different shapes.

Matuse uses Geoprene to make their suits so warm yet flexible. Geoprene is exclusive to Matuse and is made by the Yamamoto Corporation in Japan. It is derived from 99.7% pure limestone so it is not petroleum based neoprene. It has a denser cell structure than most neoprene which keeps cold water out.
Suits that are consistently built well, warm and flexible. Xcel has won wetsuit of the year, two years
in a row. More importantly for us in SF, Xcel has
continually kept us warm in Northern California's
frigid waters. Favorites our the 4/3 Infinity and 4/3
