In 1984, The ProMotion Wetsuits Company moved operations from the surfing beaches of San Diego and headed north to open a factory and showroom in Hood River, Oregon. The new location on the Columbia River was fast becoming a well-known windsurfing and kiteboarding destination, called the "Gorge". It has proven to be an unbeatable location to design and test our wetsuits. Temperatures here range from below freezing in the winter, to above 100 degrees in the summer, giving us the opportunity to test and refine every product in the line.
With 1000's of ProMotion clad users getting on the water each season, our wetsuits get plenty of water time. SUP paddlers are finding the Columbia a world-class down-winder spot. On non-wind days, flat-water paddlers enjoy scenic views from the river. Triathletes and open water swimmers from all over the region converge on our store for the best selection of swimming wetsuits and the most knowledgeable staff in the Northwest. For surfers, the surf breaks on the coast can be elusive, often known but seldom shown. Finding the right surf wetsuit with us is the easy part.
In the middle of all this activity is our company showroom, the only place where you can find every wetsuit ProMotion makes in stock and ready to go. Here, customers are relieved to find our knowledgeable staff ready to help. With wetsuits our main business, the employees at ProMotion provide the kind of expert service and advice that can only be gained from years of experience. This direct contact with watersports lovers of all kinds and all abilities is very helpful to us as well. Feedback and Input from customers has a major impact in each new wetsuit we design.
Our Showroom and Factory Service Center combined under the same roof and helps us provide unmatched service. Stop by and say "hello".
