Purchasing a wetsuit requires thought and considerations. Your wetsuit is your number one ally against injury when you’re in the water. It keeps you warm and your skin protected. To accomplish this, the wetsuit you choose needs to be made or the right materials for the type of water you’re going to be in and it must fit properly. At Wetsuit Wearhouse, we receive a lot of surfing questions, SCUBA diving questions, and questions about wetsuits. As a result, we have created this wetsuit FAQ, so you can find the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. Remember, when you’re informed, you enjoy greater comfort and safety in the water.
