Ski & Snowboard Lovers Heading to Hansen Surfboards Nov. 2 & 3 for Annual Snow and Swap Event
ENCINITAS, Calif., Oct. 17, 2012 – It’s hard to think about snow when it’s still perfect beach weather, but ski and snowboard lovers know it’s the ideal time to get geared up for the upcoming snow season. Hansen Surfboards’ annual Snow Sale and Swap Nov. 2 and 3 is a unique event that makes it fun and easy for them to bring in their old, gently used gear and clothing (hats, gloves, goggles and other accessory items not accepted) between Oct. 26 through Nov. 1, and if their item sells, they’ll receive the proceeds minus 20 percent, which goes to Hansen Surfboards to cover management of the sale.
How good is the sale and what can snow aficionados expect? “We’ve got some epic deals during this sale,” said Josh Hansen. “Some people sell items they’ve never worn or used. If you’re looking to pick up anything to add to your equipment and wardrobe for this season, you don’t want to miss this.”Read More
