I was lucky enough to get a Seventhwave MAX 3/2 GS Titanium Custom wetsuit. This suit has proven to be the warmest suit I have ever owned. I got the suit in October thinking I would get October and November using the suit before the water warmed up—this proved to be incorrect. The first day I used the suit was a chilli October southwester in Taranaki, & I was amazed how the suit was. I spent a lot of time flushing water into my suit to cool down. The combination of a perfect fit and the Titanium lining made me feel like I was surfing in an electric blanket. The previous day I was using a O'Neil Psycho2 4/3 and was far from hot.
Having less rubber around your shoulders and nice flexible material makes this suit a pleasure to use. It is great to be able to use a 3/2 wetsuit all through winter. The ability to keep warm but not have to fight the bulky rubber around your shoulders is perfect.
Also in my first surf I had in the suit, I had three different people come up to me and say how amazing Seventhwave wetsuits were. This is a great testimonial for the brand and the quality of Seventhwave wetsuits.
With the water temp starting to drop here in Taranaki and the magic South Easters starting to blow, it's time to start thinking about pulling this suit back out. I am looking forward to being toasty and warm in this suit in the coldest of winter days.
