2016 Winter Wetsuit Guide Presented by SurfRide

It’s January, 6:30 AM. A crispy, offshore flow grooms the dying end of a NW swell. You had a handful of great waves over the past couple days, enough to earn a lazy morning in bed, but it’s going to be flat the rest of the week. When weighing the decision between sleep or shred, you keep coming back to your tattered old wetsuit, still dripping from yesterday’s session. Discouraged by the frigid dampness, you retreat back to bed and miss a fun morning glide.

Repeat after me: This will not be my winter.

Want to know the easiest way to avoid the wetsuit blues? Buy a new one. The technology these days is top-notch. From quick-dry features to seams that even Moses couldn’t part, this year’s line of rubber will help get you out of bed and in the water every damn morning. Just the way it should be.
