Dear Xcel Wetsuits:
I am a big fan of your line of surf wear and UV protective gear ever since I started surfing over 12 years ago. Although I have tried other brands and manufacturers over the years, it has been a tried and true experience that your brand far exceeds in quality and durability. Much like other styles and fads in this ever increasing surf-oriented market, you have played with graphics, colors, and designs … but always maintained a steady and true dedication to comfort and durability. Bravo!
I am writing this letter in hopes that you can indulge a surfer’s wish to proudly wear his colors and designout in the water, like no other brand or manufacturer has been able to provide: my very own customized design on my very own rash guard!
Sitting in front of my computer for what seemed like hours, busily tasking my poor computer with insane Adobe Photoshop requests to create a vision, I mocked up a design … NO a dream that I will one day wear proudly in the lineup at my surf break in Hawaii …
Trouble is that there is no one out there in this ever-so-customizable personalized market that allows me to actually design my own rash guard. So I call upon you, makers of all things waterman-oriented, and plead with great urgency to join forces with do-it-yourself and design-it-yourself websites and open a form for us creative-types who wish to proudly wear our own designs on quality rash guards that bear the Xcel brand!
I am not alone in this wish, as I have come to discover. Hundreds of other surfers have voiced a similar desire to don their own designs while surfing … all the while wanting to retain the Xcel quality on their backs. Sure, there are a few design websites that will entertain the idea of creating your own shirts and water-themed clothing designs (such as zazzle.com) … but we continue to struggle with the quality of the rash guards, having been spoiled with your specific brand!
What sayest you, oh great Xcel gods of water wear? Will you listen to the voice of a surfer and loyal follower especially this surf season?
Aloha and Mahalo …
