Wetsuit Outlet donate wetsuits to enable more women get outdoors this winter

It’s no secret that the price of winter kit can be a barrier to continuing or starting your surfing journey. Yet, having good quality kit means that we can get outside and keep surfing through all the elements, helping us stay mentally and physically well through our wet and icy Welsh winter. 

Tirion's PhD research around winter surfing in Wales really brought these issues to light. She was moved by stories from the community around women lending each other kit so they could try winter surfing. Women cited that having poor quality kit put them off surfing through winter or the fact that they were gifted gloves at Christmas meant they could stay out surfing for longer. 

When Tirion spoke to Wetsuit Outlet about this, they offered to donate a whole bunch of near-new winter wetsuits for our community. With this, they’re supporting our mission to break down the barriers around surfing and enable more women to get into nature, this winter! Please enter if you'd really benefit from this draw. If you're not successful this round, we're also able to bring you an exclusive Gower Women's discount on Wetsuit Outlet to all our members. 

More info:

The wetsuits are in a range of conditions, some of them have tags on still but it's likely they may have been tested or tried on or have a possible imperfection. Not sure about the different wetsuit thicknesses?
