Further Information about Wetsuits
If you are considering Paddle Boarding or any type of Water Sports in cold or chilly conditions, a Wetsuit is a must. Wetsuits were first used by surfers in the 1950’s and have come a long way since then. The modern wetsuit is super light, stretchy and can keep you warm even in very cold water. They are made of material that can keep the body warm even when you are totally submerged in water. If you are a surfer and want to surf year round but it gets kind of chilly in your area, one of these suits is a must have. Wetsuits are available in varying thickness from 1mm to 10mm, although 2-4mm is probably the most commonly used thoughout the Spring and Summer months and 5-6mm most common for the Autumn and Winter months.
Wetsuits are made from a material called neoprene which is comfortable, although it’s important to ensure you purchase a good close fitting wetsuit to ensure it insulates correctly, a loose suit will allow too much water to circulate thus will not keep you warm, whilst a suit that is too tight will be uncomfortable and can hamper circulation. They come in all kinds of styles and you can wear gloves, boots and rash vests with them. Pricing and wetsuits can vary and it depends on the features that the suit has.
