We’re giving away a snowboard from Wilderness Sea n’ Ski
This week’s prize is an absolute ripper.
While The Snow Gauge is a skier he dips his lid to the snowboarding brethren out there and has managed to get hold of a TechNine T-Money Tie Dye snowboard through our good friends at Wilderness Sea N’ Ski, Liverpool. The RRP is a lazy $549.
More on the board in a minute but I want to tell you a quick story about why you should be supporting Wilderness Sea N’ Ski if you live in Sydney’s west, south or anywhere else for that matter.
Personally, I’m not that big on the whole marketing thing. I write stories and my strict preference in life would be to just worry about that. But I gotta eat. So you’re thinking. ‘well, he’s got a snowboard to give away here so he’ll say anything to plug Wilderness Sea N’ Ski’. Don’t have to because I was a loyal customer before I wrote anything about them.
Without Wilderness Sea N’ Ski knowing me from a bar of soap a couple of years back I bought a pair of Rossignol Soul 7’s from them. Fantastic price that was very competitive with anything from overseas. Then I bought my son’s ski boots – another great deal and some excellent customer service from store manager Deb Savvas to go with it.
At that point I realised this was the kind of place to be applauded. I’m not anti shopping overseas at all – but if you can get the prices you do here and the service to match why not give it a go? I even wrote a blog about my experiences there last year.
Anyway, after this I found out a little more about the business which, to no-one’s surprise has been family-run since 1978.
As Deb told me: “We are ‘Wilderness Sea n Ski’ and we love our job. No lies at all. We don’t have seasonal staff, as we all love to scuba, waterski, wakeboard, snorkel, ski, surf and snowboard. I can guarantee every season, and throughout the year, you’ll see the same faces.”
They also do plenty for the community, donating boots to the Salvos and also playing their part in XTM’s Heat the Homeless campaign.
So give ’em a go!
Oh and the board. Well, it’s pretty sweet. Check out the full specs here (board does not include bindings) and don’t forget to subscribe to win with The Snow Gauge!
