"5 Star - The quality is impeccable, super warm and flexible, the fit spot on and you know it’s been designed by people who care. What’s not to love." - Kingsley H.


Fit

  • A good fit is essential for keeping warm. Our suits are made to a bespoke pattern and may vary from other suits you have owned. See the size guide above to get the perfect fit, and if you're still not sure which size to choose give us a call on 01872 554 481

  • Your wetsuit should be a tight fit when new, and will loosen off slightly after 10-15 wears

  • Studio model Paulo is wearing a medium and is 5’9” / 176cm tall, chest 38” / 97cm

Details

  • Updated for 2017 with a wider zip opening for easier entry, improved fit around the chest and shoulders, and increased stretch calf panels

  • 4.5mm chest and back panel, 3.5 mm arms and legs

  • Designed for sea temperatures in the region of 9-14°C

  • Higher internal pile in over 80% of the suit for greater heat retention

  • Elongated back panel, improving heat retention

  • Extra 5mm neoprene lumbar patch over lower back, providing key warmth

  • High proportion of flexible neoprene across shoulders and through upper body to aid easy paddling

  • Double needle blind stitched throughout suit: a safer stitch that will better weather the wear and tear of the suit (no need for a seam sealant that often ends up cracking)

  • 50% wider seam tape, reducing water penetration; also adhering better to the suit, improving the durability

  • Finisterre custom neck pattern – reduced flushing as well as helping entry / exit

  • Tension wrist bands, improving wrist seal

  • Bespoke calf loops – a design feature to help suit entry

Working with a master in his field, we have looked at areas where we feel suit design needs improving and after three years of refinement plus direct feedback from over 300 surfers on our tester programme, this is the result.

The 4mm wetsuit is designed for sea temperatures in the region of 9-14°C, suitable for winters in southern England, Wales, and Europe.

Great Wetsuit that could use subtle improvements

After trying several different wetsuits from big brands, Finisterre's Nieuwland 4 is my new favorite in terms of comfort, durability, and price.

Surfing in Northern California several times a week, a warm wetsuit is essential. This wetsuit remains toasty, and the lumbar patch is an added bonus of warmth. Minimal flushing and a tight fit around wrists and ankles keep the cold out and the warmth in. Additionally, the neoprene's durability is great. After fin slices that have left other wetsuits worse for wear, the Nieuwland remains strong.

While I would really like to give this suit five stars for my experience thus far, there is room for improvement. Notably, the chest entry is quite difficult to exit and strains a concentrated area of stitching. This is more a result of wide shoulders than a fault of the wetsuit. Certain glued areas are also beginning to separate slightly. While these are components of regular wetsuit wear, given my location in North America, I have no Finisterre sponsored repair options.

Overall, at a price half that of competitors, general functional durability that is on par, and a comfort level that is just as good if not better, this is a great wetsuit!
