Hansen Surfboards Kicks off Annual Year-End

Clearance Ski & Snowboard Sale Today



ENCINITAS, Calif., Feb. 6, 2014 – Just in time for locals to take advantage of recent snowfalls at Mammoth Mountain and Big Bear Ski Resorts, Hansen Surfboards today kicked off its annual year-end clearance Ski & Snowboard Sale. The sale features 20 to 50 percent off selected skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, adult and children’s clothing, helmets, goggles and more, as well as $100 ski boots on a limited inventory of 2012 to 2013 models.


“President’s Day weekend is one of the most popular times for people to hit the slopes, whether it’s locally or out of state,” said Josh Hansen, “and this sale is where you can come in and get some great deals on snow gear you’re missing, or to completely gear up from start to finish.”


The store, located at 1105 S. Coast Hwy. 101 in Encinitas, Calif., has been named one of the best core retail shops in snowboarding by Snowboard Magazine. Additionally, for the last two years, Powder Magazine has invited one of Hansen Surfboards’ sales associates on an exclusive ski trip during which the upcoming season’s newest ski gear is tested, giving the store an advantage in selecting the latest equipment for its customers.


For those who prefer to rent, Hansen Surfboards is the only retailer in North County San Diego offering rentals and full service repair on site.


“We have a lot of customers who prefer to rent before they go up the mountain because it saves so much time and hassle,” said Hansen. “Those who take their own equipment know they can bring it back here if they have a bad spill and damage it. Our repair shop is pretty amazing and can fix almost anything.”
