Seventhwave Wetsuits is a New Zealand company dedicated to innovative high-performance wetsuits for water-sport enthusiasts. 100% New Zealand-owned and operated, we’ve been providing specialized wetsuit solutions for people since 1987. Surfing in New Zealand is a major sport and players of all ages frequent our amazing beaches throughout the North and South Islands. Our manufacturing plant and headquarters are based in Bromley, Christchurch — the cold water temperatures of the South Island are our testing ground.

Seventhwave Wetsuits are made from the world’s most technically advanced neoprene — Japanese Yamamoto neoprene — and are exceptionally warm, super light-weight, and extremely flexible. Research and development are continually undertaken to bring you products designed for functionality and performance, and to give you the warmth and endurance to "SURF ALL DAY". Custom-Fit is our personal fitting service where we can tailor our wetsuits to your specific measurements. If you want the best, then Custom-Fit is it.

Custom-Fit = 100% Performance + 100% Comfort = 200% Satisfaction!

Advanced Japanese materials and our custom fitting service — coupled with our Lifetime Warranty — means we offer a unique, amazing service delivered directly to you anywhere in the world!

See you out the back!

Our Guarantee

Our warranty fully covers your gear for any faults in workmanship or materials. Our Lifetime Warranty is on stitching and workmanship. Materials are covered by a one-year warranty, but with careful use, you should expect 2-4 seasons (or more) from your Seventhwave wetsuit. If you are not happy with your product, send it back to us within 30 days of the date of purchase, in the original packaging and we will refund or replace it.

Sales Support

Our aim is to provide efficient and prompt sales support and service. Please contact us for any assistance or advice you may require.

Repair Service

We repair all brands of wetsuits for all kinds of problems. "Fin cuts, reef grazes, dog bites, heater burns!" You name it, we've seen it before. Our razor-sharp repair service gets your suit back to you before the next swell hits your local break!

Just pack your suit into a box or courier bag and send it to us with your contact details. Upon receipt, we will assess the damage, contact you with a quote, then repair and deliver it back to you.

Custom-fit Service

We've found approximately a third of people don't fit a standard-sized wetsuit, so if you want the best fit, maximum warmth, and top performance then our Custom-Fit option is it. A Custom-fit can be applied to any of our wetsuit models.


Have your kids grown out of their old seventhwave wetsuit?  Our Trade-in service means you can send in your Kids Seventhwave wetsuit they have outgrown and trade it in on a new one! As long as it has some life left in it, we'll give you a trade-in value or discount off your next purchase.
