While the time I spend in the islands is filled with boardie-surfing, the southern Pacific Ocean is frigid!
Mind you, I am known for my spontaneous polar bear swims as far as Mason Bay in the middle of Winter! That could have been the reason I purchased a MAX 3/3 ZB
from Seventhwave nearly two years ago and she’s still going strong showing very little wear!
As a Sumner resident for nearly two years I grew to love living on Scarborough Road. A short jog down with my Sadhana
South Island fish in the middle of winter, sweating my arse off in my wettie, had me riding the long rollers most of the stalwarts still in Christchurch love! I guess I shouldn’t go into how hot after a run to Taylor’s was! But does it matter? Nah, body heat was always up therefore I stayed in the water longer. Being a Dunedin resident, with occasional trips to the islands, over the last two years I’ve gotten used to everything southern: the swell, the wind and the bloody cold current!
This wettie can take it all. Oh, did I mention it’s been on quite a few dives in that time? At 10m, it even keeps me warm for those valuable moments I can hold my breath hoping for a bigger fish than the one I saw on my way down. These suits are worth their weight in gold.
