XTERRA Wetsuits strives to make your swim faster and more comfortable, and to offer you the highest performing triathlon wetsuit at the best value. We’ve been doing this all over the world since 2001. We confidently stand by our claim of making the world’s fastest wetsuit, and our sponsored athletes have the records to back it up: An XTERRA Wetsuit, worn by one of the world’s elite triathletes, holds the world record for fastest swim while wearing a wetsuit.
Our triathlon wetsuits were born in San Diego – the birthplace of triathlon. We begin by designing them with four key components in mind – comfort, speed, buoyancy and value. Then we test them ourselves, right here in Mission Bay, home of the first ever triathlon in 1974 – the XTERRA Wetsuits Mission Bay Triathlon. In addition, our owners are all triathletes and we understand our customers ‘ needs and desires when shopping for technical triathlon equipment.
When you purchase a XTERRA Wetsuit, know this: you’re not getting it from the second or third company to own it after they’ve passed it along through multiple distribution channels. You’re getting it directly from us – that means much lower prices for higher performing triathlon wetsuits with quick, personalized, friendly, and excellent service.
Sports Basement is a sporting-goods retailer with several locations (plus a pop-up) in the San Francisco Bay Area. We take pride in selling the best brands at basement prices.

Coffee Method is a new start-up coffee subscription initiated in San Francisco. We are obsessive about extracting the best notes from the coffee beans by methodically roasting them to reach a light, medium and dark roast, as well as creating custom blends from the individually roasted beans.
At Coffee Method, we are all about bringing out the characteristics of the bean by roasting them in a spectrum of heat and timing. We run each bean through 12 different points of roasting—from light to dark—to determine the best roast for that bean. To extract the best notes from the coffee, it’s all about heat and timing.
Each month we order three different green coffee beans from around the world. From mountainous terrain to coastal, with altitude spanning from 300–2500 meters and soil compositions varying from volcanic loam to vertisol clay. Our selection criteria is to have each bean to be different, so your palette is challenged every month.
