Shorty wetsuits

Buy shorty wetsuit

Temperatures above 20 degrees, sunshine, hot water. Time for a summer wetsuit! At warm temperatures you no longer need a shorty for the warmth. A summer wetsuit mainly protects you against the sun and sand on the anti-slip of your board. You will not have much warmth from a shorty, this is not a big problem because thats not why a shorty is invented.


What to look for when purchasing a shorty wetsuit

Size: The size is very important when purchasing a shorty wetsuit. With a wetsuit that is too long or too short, you have the chance that the performance during your water sport will be less than if you have the right size of wetsuit on. That is why we recommend that you check carefully whether you have the correct size before you go on the water.

Comfort: A comfortable surf suit is perhaps one of the most important things to look for when purchasing a short wetsuit. If the comfort is not good you don't go in and out with a good feeling. As a result, your performance will also be reduced so that you will ultimately get less pleasure in the water sports that you practice. To find the right wetsuit we advise you to visit the Telstar Surf shop where you have a wide choice of all kinds of wetsuits.

Zipper type: There are different wetsuits with different types of zips. The Back-Zip, Front-Zip and Zipless wetsuits are available at Telstar Surf.
A Back-Zip wetsuit has the zipper on the back of the wetsuit, this is also the most common type of zipper because you can easily get in and out of your wetsuit.
The Front-Zip wetsuits have the zipper at the front, an advantage of these wetsuits is that the connection is very narrow which results in less water coming through the suit.
The Zipless wetsuits have no closed closure. At first glance you will probably think that a lot of water can come in, but that is not the case! The No-Zip wetsuits are becoming increasingly popular because they not only hold back a lot of water, but also because the zipless wetsuits are a lot lighter in weight.

Connection: There are two different types of connections in the wetsuits. One of those two connections is called the stitched connection. This type of connection ensures that your neoprene stays together properly through seams. A disadvantage of this connection is that it makes it easier for wind and water to get through.
The other type of connection is the glued type. We strongly recommend this connection if you are going to sail with colder weather or if you want a very solid suit. A disadvantage of the glued summer wetsuits is that they are a lot more expensive than the stitched versions.
