In 1983 we stitched together our first padded trisuit and have been at it ever since! This year marks our 30th Birthday!!! We are so excited to celebrate it with you in the place where it all began: The Big Island!

On Saturday October 12th, thousands of athletes will toe the line at the 35th Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii and we could not be more proud of every one of them for all the hard work and effort they put in to get there.

And we can think of NOTHING better than to celebrate our 30th with our athletes, friends, family and YOU….so we decided to throw a giant party after the race.  We have a handful of tickets to the invite-only Zoot Kona After Party we’ll be giving away throughout the week, so be sure to stop by our booth, check us out on Facebook and tune in on Twitter to find out how these could be yours (hint: may want to brush up on your Happy Birthday singing voice… 🙂

You’ll find us at the Expo all week.  We’re taking it back to the 80’s with some totally gnarly, limited edition performance apparel.  So swing by – we’d love to see you and we’d LOVE to giant high-5 your totally rad self!

*If you’re NOT in Kona, no worries, we got you covered.  Look for updates and behind-the-scenes shots from the expo, the race and the after-party:  #zootkona2013
And if you’re digging our 80’s gear, be sure to ask your friend/training partner/random local Kona-qulaifier to pick-up a kit for you.
