There isn’t much gear when it comes to surfing. It is just you and the surfboard and of course the wetsuit to protect you during the cooler days. Unless you are only surfing in places with a warm climate you will need a wetsuit that will keep you warm. Thankfully the modern wetsuits are much softer and offer much more comfort and flexibility than the earlier rubber ones. The Neoprene suits are much softer, that you get full freedom of movement with them. Let us see how you can get a wetsuit that is most comfortable for you.
Buy From The Experts
You can get a wetsuit from any of the shops. But, like you seek advice from the surf shop for the local weather and stuff, it is always better to buy from someone who is a surfer. There are popular brands created by those are surfers themselves. It is better to buy those brands because they know exactly what you need as a surfer.
Get A Good Fit
All wetsuits stretch over time. When you buy them, get the one that fits you snugly. You don’t want them to be baggy in a few days causing rashes because of rubbing against your body. A tight fit will also prevent water from getting in through the holes for your hands, legs, and head.
Spend More For Comfort
There is no use buying cheap if you are going to be swimming in the cold season and in colder areas too. You may have a budget, but you can stretch it a little to get something that is really comfortable. You don’t want to sacrifice your surfing because of the wetsuit. Spend a little more on the one that will keep you most comfortable. The neoprene suits weigh less which makes it comfortable while paddling. They are also much softer than the older rubber ones.
The thickness of the wetsuit is totally your preference. How warm you need to be when you are in the water will decide on what thickness you want to buy. It is totally a personal choice. Some people like to be really warm when surfing while others may surf in the shorts and a top even in slightly low temperatures. You can check with the shop in your area as to which is most suited for the waters there.
Follow the above broad guidelines, but always put your comfort on the top priority.
