I was looking for a new summer suit today, and saw a great review. www.secretspot.co.uk posted an indepth article about the new ripcurl e-bomb pro, and the excel infiniti. http://www.secretspot.co.uk/Blog/spring ... d-196.aspx Definitely worth a read if your in need of a summer suit: http://www.secretspot.co.uk/wetsuits/mens/mens-summer/

Sorry but those aren't reviews, they are bullshit hype posts based on "alleged" properties of the wetsuits. A review is where someone actually goes and tries something out and then comes back and writes something constructive and informative about it. Your links are just shit attempts to garner some traffic to secret spot!

Sorry if I sound a bit cynical but seriously!!

i would'nt buy a rip curl again if i was paid, and thats after wearing them since the mid 80's. flexy yes, but sodding fragile and you will be lucky if the seams last a few months... warranty, yeah right! what warranty!!

besides which, compared to my swim suit, all surfing wetsuits are a joke. we are being so ripped off folks, there is way better out there.

Press releases. Not reviews. And if the poster has anything to do with secret spot, this amounts to thinly veiled spamming and they should thus be spurned.

As Secretspot is one of my local surf shops Id like to say that the guys are all top people. The shop offers great impartial advice and thats whether it gets them a sale or not.

Personally I find it very hard to believe that they would plug so shamelessly on here.

And it's not like Secretspot is not known to people, when you search for a surf-related items / shops online they pop up on search engines quite often.

It really does look like a shameless "discreet" publicity, but surely the shop people would notice that it's quite blatant to do so? Especially on MSW forum?!

Or is it...

unusually catchy title, first post, overkill links to the website... alarms ringing.
