Bumps Ski & Surf cel­e­brates 35 years

Alpine News - - Property Guide -

BUMPS Ski & Surf was es­tab­lished in March 1982 and over the past thirty-five years has proved to be a stayer in the ski in­dus­try.

Peter and Glenda Ha­ley opened the doors on Bumps Ski and Sport (now called Bumps Ski and Surf), at 465 Glen­huntly Rd El­stern­wick on March 15 1982.

Their goal was to de­velop and main­tain a grow­ing ski and sport re­tail busi­ness by pro­vid­ing the high­est pos­si­ble level of cus­tomer ser­vice in the in­dus­try, which un­doubt­edly has been achieved.

Their motto, “the right prod­uct for the right rea­son, no ex­cep­tions” still rings true, with their highly trained staff al­ways ad­vis­ing what is best for the in­di­vid­ual.

Bumps were pi­o­neers within the ski in­dus­try and in­tro­duced many ideas that have been adopted across the board such as the Boot Fit Guar­an­tee and ex­tended win­ter trad­ing hours (to al­low for eas­ier ski rental).

The store have also in­tro­duced many new ideas such as the An­nual Kids’ Re­cy­cle Sale and the An­nual Race Ex­hi­bi­tion – both of which are widely at­tended. This year Bumps cel­e­brates the 21st an­niver­sary of the Kids Re­cy­cle sale.

Bumps have a pol­icy of be­ing at the fore­front of in­no­va­tion and pro­vid­ing their loyal cus­tomers with such tech­nol­ogy. Bumps was one of the first to in­tro­duce the ex­clu­sive Win­ter­steiger fac­tory fin­ish ski and snow­board tun­ing ser­vice to metropoli­tan Mel­bourne and the first in the world to take de­liv­ery of the Mon­tana In­frared Race Waxer ma­chine.

In an era where many shop on­line, there are cer­tain things that can­not be bought that way and that in­cludes a qual­ity fit and ex­per­tise. Bumps have all of the above and are the only Snows­ports store in Mel­bourne still run by the orig­i­nal own­ers.
