We understand the importance of staying warm in the winter months so you can enjoy your chosen water sport. This is why we have invested in one of the largest ranges and stock of suit in the UK & Europe. As technology has progressed from the early days of the first wetsuit made by Jack O'Neill in Santa Cruz, it now means we can all enjoy even the coldest of waters. A winter wetsuit is made from a thickness of either 4mm, 5mm or 6mm neoprene. This ensures that your body retains it's heat and you are happy in the water. The really good thing over the past few years in that even though a winter suit is thicker the materials used are so flexible that it now feels like you are wearing a summer suit. The only choice you need to make is to go fro a chest zip or back zip suit. The major benefits of the chest zip version is that when you are in the water you have no restriction across your back giving you complete freedom of movement. If you are new to water sports a back zip makes it very easy to get on and off so you are not struggling in the car park.
In terms of which sports you can use the wetsuits, it is pretty much the case that all suits are multi purpose so can be used for surfing, kitesurfing, jet skiing and much more. If you are unsure of how much to spend then it comes down to the more money you do spend the more flexible the suit will be and generally the warmer as it will have additional thermal linings.
