I had heard about the elusive lightweight, extremely warm and flexible Yamamoto neoprene, but had never actually seen or tried it before
. I was apprehensive at first about purchasing something I knew so little about, but was admittedly, very curious. After researching the famous Japanese neoprene and discovering Seventhwave Wetsuits online, I become even more curious about this alleged breakthrough innovative neoprene material. I began reading various testimonials from users that were overwhelmingly positive, and began to think there must be something to these innovative wetsuits.
I surf in New Jersey, located in the northeast area of the US, where frigid water temps typically drop to the low 30's F in the wintertime here (almost 0˚C). I finally made the decision to order the 3mm Viper Ti Steamer
last fall and surfed the entire winter using my new 3mm Seventhwave wetsuit, and never had the need to pull out my old standby 5mm winter wetsuit — which by the way was much bulkier, less flexible and not as warm. I am very pleased to report my new Seventhwave wetsuit outperformed my old 5mm Rip Curl winter wetsuit and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a high performance, lightweight, exceptionally warm wetsuit for the most extreme conditions!
As a result I've rediscovered the stoke of winter surfing. I used to dread putting on a bulky, non-flexible, or very warm wetsuit to surf in the middle of winter. But now with my new Viper Steamer I once again look forward to winter surf sessions.
When it came to customizing the wetsuit, I was overwhelmed how accommodating the Seventhwave team was with all my requests — from logo/branding positions and orientations to material colors. Every design detail was accurately captured per my requests. Not only does my Viper Steamer provide outstanding performance, it looks crazy awesome as well! I also love the lightweight, flexibility and warmth provided by Seventhwave wetsuits.
I would absolutely recommend your 3mm Viper Steamer to anyone looking for added warmth, flexibility and lightweight in extremely frigid winter conditions.
Keep up the great work!
