• Surfing/Bodyboarding in very cold water is considered an extreme sport and it is essential to load yourself with the right neoprene for the conditions. Not having the right gear could spell disaster. You will need a thicker wetsuit—at least a 4/3 with Glued & Sealed seams and Titanium for the colder temperatures. Most of our suits can be made thicker, or you can add our special Aero Zirconium fluffy/plush lining on request.
• ZB (neck entry) suits are made for surfing and bodyboarding, as they stop cold flushes down your spine and almost completely eliminate water entering your suit. Many don't like mesh (smoothie) on the chest as it can split and wear, so we can replace the mesh with standard neoprene. This option will also last longer than smoothie.
• Wind can be your worst enemy, so wearing more layers is the best way to combat it. The only problem with this is that it restricts movement. The Titanium Hot Top is an ultra warm, lightweight (0.5mm) layer designed to reflect bodyheat and remain flexible. Hood, gloves and booties are necessary. We offer a fixed or detachable hood on our zipless models, and this stops annoying drops of water flushing down your collar and is less bulky than a standard hood.
