STEVE THORP LOOKING TO XCEL IN 2008

The current number 2 on the UKWA Wave Tour and WaveJammer extraordinaire has picked up sponsorship from Daniel Surf Ltd, the distributers of Xcel wetsuits.

Said Steve:

'As I spend most of the year in the UK, including a lot of windsurfing on the East coast during the winter, I need some pretty good rubber to keep me warm. Xcel wetsuits are widely regarded as the best on the market, so these are the perfect choice and they look amazing! I'm really stoked to be wearing their suits and I'm actually looking forward to next winter knowing how warm I'll be.'
