Deciding on best surfing wetsuits can make an immense difference in your total enjoyment when you hit the waves. There are some essential criteria to consider in deciding on the best of them. In this post I’ll take you through the various wetsuits designs, sizes, depth, and accessories for a comfortable surfing experience.

There is a variety of some design versions

Normal water temperatures for the place where you surf in the wintertime will give you a base line for the neoprene depth. Booties are optional above 60 degrees water temperatures,and many surfers do not wear them because they need the hold that naked feet offers. I pick to wear booties since I enjoy the additional heat and protection from coral and stone on the ocean floor.

Getting these suits in UK is not challenging. If possible to get the perfect size, try on wetsuits UK. If purchasing on-line then do the best you can to match your size up to the particular brand size charts.

Additionally, in water temperatures below 60 degrees, you may discover wetsuit hat works or a hood, particularly for rolling under waves, when the water is extremely cold you can get a head ache with without a hat or a  hood. Gloves may be another great option, even though surfers do not enjoy them in handling the surf board because they can hamper a firm grip of the board.

Wetsuit Gloves and Booties
There are some distinct styles of wetsuit gloves available on the market; in the UK and every part of the world. It’s possible for you to try webbed wetsuit gloves, fingerless wetsuit gloves, the five finger complete wetsuit gloves and mitten design wetsuit gloves. For water temperatures over 60 degrees I often enjoy the fingerless for the additional handle. Some advantages can be added by the webbed gloves for better paddling operation.

Wetsuit booties are accessible in designs that are like thick socks without booties that are more like wetsuit shoes and the tread on the underside. I favor the booties that have a treaded underside with a velcro strap that keeps water from filling and cinches the top of the booties. The heavier booties are better for wading out at reef rests through tide pool areas where there may be lots of sharp rocks or other dangers under the water.

Warmer or summer Water Wetsuit Equipment.
For some individuals who surf in the UK, no wetsuit is required when surfing warm waters; especially during the summertime. For temperatures over 70 degrees there are some great options for adding only a bit extra heat. It’s possible for you to attempt 1mm to 3mm wetsuit vests, zip up coats, trousers, tee shirts and wetsuit short pants. Besides, there are short johns can be sleeve or short sleeve. The warm water wetsuit parts may also be used under your full winter wetsuit in the winter for additional heat.
