Seventhwave stitched me up with my first custom wettie in 2009 and since then Paul has been onto me to write a blog/testimonial/sales pitch. I thought it was premature as my experience going back a few years is that wetties may last three winters max but usually two.
Well here we are going into the 5th winter for my Viper 3/3 and with the addition of the Titanium Hot Top I am toastie in 12º water and air down to 0º.
So here is my take on what’s good about Seventhwave wetsuits and of course why I am such a tragic kiwiphile!
Background is that I live in Tasmania and some say I am the oldest bodyboarder around which is not really true but close.
Here are some pics of local waves:
I found Seventhwave through the Isolated web site and I also found the southern part of the South Island.
Last year my son, Joe, and I stopped off in Christchurch to pick up custom Max wetsuits – he got a hooded version and I got a special 4/4/3 – that is legs in 4mm. Well we had a ripper of a time so this year we did the first ever Pemberton Family Vacation outside of Tassie to celebrate Karmen’s Birthday and to do quality control on all those Kiwi beers (that’s a whole another blog)."
Here are some kiwi pics.
