Technical information

YOU ARE AN INTERMEDIATE SURFER

You regularly go surfing. During your sessions, you paddle out to the line-up, duck dive under the breaking waves if you are on a shortboard, or turtle roll if you are on a longboard, then surf waves of less than one metre. You often fall and are used to being shaken about underwater. Your swimsuit must meet the requirements of your activity and stay in place for each of your movements. We have designed a range for you that is suited to regular activity and your body shape.

How to choose the right diving suit (Part 1)

The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing diving suit is the water temperature.
Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year.
Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range:
Warm water above 20°C.
Temperate water between 17°C and 22°C.
Cold water between 12°C and 17°C.
Very cold water between 7°C and 12°C.
Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your spot.

How to choose the right diving suit (Part 2)

The 2nd criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models. Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models. NOTE: the 900 models are easier to put on.

Choose the right size

To make the most of the features of your diving suit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing diving suit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the diving suit gets wet.

Fastening

Our zips and fastenings are laboratory tested in order to ensure an optimal lifespan and good resistance to salt water. We have put the zip at the back of the diving suit for more comfort during surf sports (when lying down to paddle).

Stay warm for longer thanks to our accessories! Each temperature range has its own outfit.

When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories:
- in warm water and temperate water (>17°C) => low neoprene shoes.
- in cold water (12 - 17°C): High boots and gloves.
- in very cold water (7 - 12°C): High booties (boots), gloves, hood and hooded top.
