Hansen Surfboards Shifts into High Gear for Ski & Snowboard Season with Annual Year-End Clearance Sale  


ENCINITAS, Calif., Jan. 29, 2012 – Hansen Surfboards is shifting into high gear for ski and snowboard season with its annual year-end clearance sale. Beginning at 9 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 2 through Sunday, Feb. 5, selected skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, adult and children’s clothing, helmets, goggles and accessories will be marked down 20 to 50 percent.


“This is the perfect time to gear up for the season because the deals we’re offering are end of the season prices and we still have a couple of months of good snow left,” said Josh Hansen. “Customers have plenty of time to try out their new gear.”


Hansen Surfboards is the only retailer in North County San Diego offering rentals and full service repair on site.


“There’s still a couple of months left in the ski and snowboard season, so there’s still a big selection left of clothing and accessories and great deals,” added Hansen. “It’s not like in years past when we had sales at the end of the season and selections were limited. This sale is a big one.”


Founded in 1961, Hansen Surfboards is San Diego’s largest surf shop and credits the San Diego community, surf legends and brands that have been a big part of its success. With more than 16,000 square feet of retail space, it offers something for everyone in the family. Hansen Surfboards has been celebrating 50 years of success as a single-store, family-owned and operated retail business. The California Surf Museum is currently displaying “Hansen Surfboards – A 50 Year Retrospective” showcasing Don Hansen and Hansen Surfboards and their contributions to the surfing community through the end of February 2012.
