Derevko wetsuits team rider Greg Emslie has proved himself once again by winning the Mr Price Pro SA Open Championships in near perfect conditions at his home break of Nahoon Reef, East London.

After announcing his retirement from the WCT Greg has put all his focus into national events and has secured 4 victories in the past 5 events! Emslie is not only the current SA Champion, National Team captain and Cold Water Classic winner but can now add a the SA Open title to his list of achievements in 2010!

With almost all the events taking place in cold water conditions Greg has been putting his signature wetsuit, The Patriot, through its paces. The results bear testimony to the dedication between Derevko and Greg to design a wetsuit that can offer exceptional performance, durability and warmth.

“When Derevko approached me to get involved in designing their top end suit I was super excited to get on board,” said Emslie. “There were a lot of features I thought could make a difference to performance and warmth, and offer a truly South African designed product into the market.”

And the results speak for themselves…

What started out as an “affordable option” brand has quickly turned into a sought after product range that continues to offer surfers the very best value-for-money wetsuits available and exceptional after sales service.

Founder of Derevko, Donovan Marais comments: “Our focus has definitely shifted from a price point product to a brand that values quality and after sales service above all else, while still maintaining an affordable pricing structure.”

“Derevko is investing heavily into developing our new product lines for 2011. We have had tremendous success in launching last year in Australia and have just signed distribution into New Zealand…”

“We are also finalizing design of our new top end wetsuit that will feature environmentally sustainable materials that are exclusive to the Derevko brand!”
