Shorty wetsuits

Shorty wetsuits

Summer temperatures, sun and water? Time to put on your shorty! A shorty is not made for the warmth but to protect you from the sun and the anti-slip of your board. The ladies shorties are made in a simple way which is not bad when it is warm outside but less pleasant when the wind gets stronger. The seams of the shorty's are not glued, this means that with wind comes easy through the wetsuit.

What to look for when purchasing a shorty ladies' wetsuit

Size: When buying a ladies shorty wetsuit, the size is the most important part to look at. 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 if you have the correct size before you go on the water to prevent unpleasant situations.

Comfort: A comfortable ladies' wetsuit is perhaps one of the most important things to look for when purchasing a short wetsuit. If the comfort is not good you won't go on the water with a good feeling. Because of this, there is a good chance that your performance will also decrease, 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 lot of choice in all kinds of ladies shorty wetsuits and you can expect personal advice.

Zipper type: There are different shorty wetsuits with all kinds of zippers. The Back-Zip, Front-Zip and Zipless shorty wetsuits are available in the Telstar Surf shop.
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 do not have a zipper. At first glance you will probably think that water can come in through it, but that is not the case at all! The No-Zip wetsuits are becoming more popular because they not only hold back much water, but also because the zipless shorty ladies 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 are the glued shorty wetsuits. 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 shorty wetsuits is that they are a lot more expensive than the stitched versions.
