Buying guide for ladies wetsuits

If you want to be 100% sure of the right choice, you cannot avoid fitting a wetsuit. This is of course easiest in the Telstar Surf shop, but otherwise do it carefully at home. On the one hand, your wetsuit must fit tightly, but it also must be comfortable. Comfortable means, among other things, that you have freedom of movement and that you can easily get in and out of the wetsuit. When buying a wetsuit you have to pay attention to a lot of things. We briefly describe the most important points.

Things you should pay attention to this when purchasing a ladies' wetsuit

Neoprene type: there is a difference between single and doublelined neoprene. The doublelined neoprene has a protective fabric on the outside of the surf wetsuit. This means that it has a longer lifespan compared to single-lined neoprene. A disadvantage of doublelined neoprene is that the wetsuit is less warm in comparison with the single lined neoprene.

Thickness of your wetsuit: ladies' wetsuits are for sale from 3 to 6 mm. The correct thickness also depends on the temperature at which you want to windsurf or kitesurf. In addition, your physical structure naturally also plays a major role. You only use 3 mm wetsuits in the summer. A 5 mm is as a rule the most general wetsuit for the Dutch circumstances.

Seams: with all the wetsuits you have to pay attention to the seams. The more affordable ladies wetsuits have a seam that is fully stitched. This simple method of suffocation has the disadvantage that wind and water pass through the surf suit easily, making it feel cold quickly. There are also glued seams. This way of keeping the neoprene together holds up much more water and wind than the stitched seams.

Sleeves: windsurfers want wider sleeves in the wetsuit, because the forearms set up while windsurfing. On the contrary, surfers want to have tight sleeves to prevent water inflow.

Waterblock: many women's wetsuits nowadays have a waterblock. This is a continuous piece of neoprene that runs over the back to prevent water ingress.

Value for money: more expensive ladies' wetsuits have a better quality neoprene which benefits the movement.

Insulation: more expensive wetsuits often have extra materials on the inside of the wetsuit to improve insulation.
