Zhik and Ocean Leisure have teamed up, for the second year in a row, to support the new format London Boat Show, where they will be demonstrating the award winning new Isotak X Ocean gear, supporting British talent, and some promoting some exciting special offers on stand LA030.

Ocean Leisure is one of the UK's leading watersports specialist retailers and are actively promoting the Zhik range through their stores in London and Cowes. Ocean Leisure's Federico Da Sie comments, "The new London Boat Show is the perfect time for us to showcase some of the new 2018 Zhik products, for the breadth of visitors we meet there, from youth sailors and performance dinghy sailors to cruising sailors and offshore racers. We've designed the stand to reflect the retail experience of our store, so it's a nice environment for visitors to come and explore.

"It's also an opportunity for us to create some special offers. So instead of Black Friday, we'll have some 'Black Show Offers' running. Expect some exceptional deals on Zhik Superwarm and Microfleece wetsuits and an amazing deal on original Isotak Ocean for our Show visitors."

The 2018 stand will feature examples of Zhik's award winning Isotak® X Ocean range, including the new Drysuit. The range is currently being put through it's paces in the Southern Ocean on board Dongfeng Race Team and Team AkzoNobel in the Volvo Ocean Race.

This is a great opportunity to see the new innovations that will soon be available for all offshore sailors, including the new Isotak Hydrovision™ hood featuring a clear, 'see through' visor, and the 'Adaptive™' hood and collar enabling the entire hood-collar unit to be inter-changed with alternative balaclavas for different weather conditions.

Zhik's UK Manager Tristan Hutt adds, "This Show will be particularly special for us. Zhik has increased its presence dramatically over the last few years and 2018 will be no exception. We are delighted be featuring some of Zhik's latest innovations and once again working with top London marine retailer Ocean Leisure to provide a world class retail experience.

"We are also thrilled to be supporting Britain's Susie Goodall, who will be launching her Golden Globe Race 2018 campaign during the Show, and talking about her incredible challenge on the main stage during the Show."

Susie will be visiting the Zhik stand on Friday 12 January at 1pm, where she will be interviewed by Mark Jardine, editor of
