As most Kiwi's know, Wellington gets more than it's fair share of wild weather. Surfers here demand a wetsuit that can not only handle 8 degree winter water but also big Wairarapa swells that often go double overhead. Of the 11 members of the Wellington Fire Boardriders club, 7 of us wear Seventhwave wetsuits—some for nearly two decades!
The suits are very flexible, especially the Viper 3/3 Ti ZB Steamers—no more 5/4 Michelin men! And are lighter when wet than many other competitors wetties which is great for those 3 to 4 hour sessions. But most importantly they are warm, an absolute necessity here during a windy Welly winter! Plus they have the feel good factor of being Kiwi made & provide a good back up & repair service if we get dragged over rocks & reefs.
For my money Seventhwave wetsuits are second to none & I'd never buy another brand again—I am that impressed. Thanks Seventhwave—keep up the good work."
