Winter surfing may sound daunting especially for beginners, but for those who are up for a challenge this is the time to test the waters, literally. However it takes more than just guts and skill to overcome the chilly waters in some of the world's popular winter surfing locations. It takes a lot of preparation - physically and mentally, and, most especially, externally (meaning, your attire) before you dip your foot in the water.
Wetsuits especially designed to protect riders from cold water and wind made it possible for these guys to go out and tackle the waves without worrying much about the low temperatures. These suits are made with innovative materials that offer warmth, ample stretch for movability, and light weight.
It's much better to go for winter-specific wetsuits, instead of wearing anything inappropriate that can hamper your performance on the water. Men's winter wetsuits are usually available in black, grey or any variation of these hues, so finding matching accessories are easy. But with renowned wetsuit brands like Hurley and Xcel, you will also find other colours available in the market. Same goes for women's winter wetsuits especially today, as there are stylishly designed suits that come in different colour tones.
For extreme conditions, it's ideal to wear wetsuits gloves for added comfort and warmth, so you can easily grab your board whenever you need to. Also, don't forget about wetsuit boots that are especially designed for winter surfing. These accessories are a must to protect your hands and feet from the cold waters, so you can ride the waves without worrying and feeling any discomfort.
