Rip Curl answers to Quiksilver’s Neo Goo Boots with their own Rubber Soul 3mm Split Toe Boot. Dipped boot technology is new to the wetsuit world, but it is catching on fast. Dipping boots and gloves in liquid neoprene is said to provide the best seal, allowing you wear a thinner boot or glove that remains flexible and warm. These wetsuit boots aren’t quite available in the states yet, but we’ll have them this fall when they are released.
Here is Rip Curl’s blurb about the boots…
The new Rubber Soul boot has been dipped in liquid neoprene resulting in the ultimate in seam sealing technology. More warmth, durability, flexibility and simplicity gives surfers a great solution to the search for the ultimate surfing boot.
Expected to be arriving in the next few months, so stay tuned, they will be up on our Rip Curl Wetsuits page as soon as they get here.

ESPN.com just came out with the most in depth article on Lib Tech Surfboards to date. Checkout the article, there are some pictures of Josh and Mike, and a brief mention that Cleanline Surf Shop was the first to receive the boards. Stoked!
After more than three decades spent refining an eco-alternative to the traditional high performance surfboard, Mike Olson and Lib Tech have officially announced the release of their long-anticipated line of surfboards: Lib Tech Waterboards.
Lib Tech is highly regarded in the snowboard and skateboard industries for its environmental board building practices and original, artistic board designs, but the company’s roots are actually in surfing. It is a little-known fact that Mike Olson, co-founder of Lib Tech, generated a large portion of the original funds he used to finance his early snowboard projects by shaping and selling surfboards in the Pacific Northwest in the late 70s and early 80s. Unhappy with the toxicity of the materials used to create surfboards, Olson set out to find alternatives.
