Picking The Right Wetsuit For You
Thickness, style and size are the 3 key points we tell all our customers who are in need of wetsuit, add in a budget and you have a winning combination to find the perfect wetsuit best suited to you!
Offaxis recommend choosing the right thickness for you depends on your geographical location and when you will be using the wetsuit the most. This wetsuit shorty is 2mm, which means 2mm thick panels of neoprene throughout the shorty. The benefit of this is that you get the flex throughout but maintain the warmth in the core of you body when it comes to doing your watersports. Here in the UK we recommend a 2mm wetsuit shorty is ideal for the summer, as the water temperature is at its peak especially if the sun is shining and you dont need fullsuit. We find the 2mm wetsuit Shorty are essential when surfing abroad, just incase the forecast is not as great as you hoped and it also offers a little more protection than what your rash vests and boardies would.
When it comes to choosing the right size it is very important to get the fit correct. If your wetsuit top doesn't fit right t will not do the right job! Offaxis recommend your top ideally should fit like your second skin and feel comfortable to wear. If your suit is too large air and water will fill in the gaps and cool your body down very quickly. If the top is too tight then it will be uncomfortable to wear and you will put stress on the seams which will stretch and damage the wetsuit. We recommend if you own a wetsuit then get your wetsuit top the closest size to your suit. If unsure take a peek at the Size Chart to see which top ticks the box for you.
