Wetsuits for men have been in existence since the early 1950's. The first ones were made of neoprene rubber and designed in the form of vests. Through the passion and skills of a certified surfer guy named Jack O'Neill, men’s wetsuit design evolved into different variations with stitches ranging from seam taping to gluing, to blind stitch sewing in order to boost its functionality.
Pro surfers require engineered wetsuits that provide enough coverage to protect them from extreme cold temperatures while in the water. These are made of lightweight neoprene with insulation and enough flexibility to allow them to move effortlessly.
Regular swimwear is only good for summer and spring, or when the water is warmer. Even non-professional water sports practitioners are advised to wear proper swimwear and wetsuits since they have protective features that regular shorts and tank tops do not have.
If you’re thinking of getting men’s wetsuits for your surfing sessions, here are a few benefits to consider:
Complementary wetsuit accessories are designed to provide extra protection especially when shredding in extreme weather/water conditions. Ensure that you have full suits, wetsuit boots, gloves and hoods or caps if you love surfing in various locations. For lighter shredding and short distance sessions, it’s ideal to have on-hand some shorty or spring suits, wetsuit top and jacket, rash vest and shorts.
