World Barefoot Center no longer an Eagle Dealer

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

As of January 2, 2014

WBC NEWS – Company growth outpaces supplier’s production ability!

Every successful company reaches thresholds of increased demand, of elevated customer expectations and of heightened responsibility to their industry. The WBC has just been informed by Chuck Gleason of Eagle Sports that he will no longer be able to meet the barefoot wetsuit production demands of WBC.

In a letter to the WBC Chuck states “You guys have ordered a lot of product, and I know our product fits well within your business…….It’s with regret that I have to inform you that Eagle Sports will be unable to fulfill your wetsuit production needs for this coming season……..we don’t feel we can deliver product to WBC in a timely enough manner for you to adequately support your clients………. ”

The WBC is grateful for the relationship we have had with Eagle Sports during our growth. This was an expected phase, to outpace some of our suppliers, however we did not forecast being at this point with our wetsuit demand at this time.

Ben Groen – WBC Manager Product Development & Manufacturing is excited about this new step “I look at it as an opportunity to learn from our growth and ultimately enhance delivery with higher quality products. By partnering with a more established manufacturer that has closer ties to global markets we will position our company with the leaders within the industry”

The WBC wishes Eagle Sports continued success.

The World Barefoot Center would like to apologize to our customers as we go through this transitional period. We are excited to say we have been working with a respected company and well known wetsuit manufacturer to bring a new line of custom WBC wetsuits soon. We will follow up with an announcement shortly.

KSO Wetsuits, Stocked and Ready at the World Barefoot Center

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Another load of KSO wetsuits has arrived at the World Barefoot Center, including the David Small Signature wetsuit!   You can order your KSO Wetsuit online or by calling the World Barefoot Center at 863-877-0039.

“We hear it’s been a cold spring for our Northern footin’ friends,” said Keith St. Onge.  “We’re shipping out lots of heater shirts with the wetsuits!”

For those of us up north, we’re still waiting for the water to warm up– but some of us are out there braving 45 degree air temps and putting the feet on almost-frozen water.  A dry suit is a definite plus– and you can add one to your wetsuit order at the World Barefoot Center Pro Shop.

If you’re aiming to add new tricks to your footin’ skills this summer, try out a pair of WBC Shoe Skis and build up your skills confidently on the water.

If you’ve got a KSO Wetsuit, send us some pictures of you having fun on the water and we’ll post them on the blog and Facebook.  Tell us your footin’ story with the picture!  Send your picture and story to Karen Putz at wskier22 (at) aol (dot) com.

Happy footin’!
