"5 Star - Took it out for the first time last weekend in Devon and didn't feel any bit cold during a 4hr session. Keeps you very warm and doesn't hinder your movement too much. Great wetsuit for the colder winter sessions!" - Thomas G.


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 with an easier entry system and improved fit around the chest and waist

  • 6.5mm chest and back panel, 4.5 mm arms and legs

  • Designed for sea temperatures in the region of 4-10°C

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

  • Elongated back panel, improving heat retention

  • Extra 6mm 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 5mm wetsuit is designed for sea temperatures in the region of 4-10°C, suitable for winters in the north of England, Scotland, Ireland and Scandinavia.

Nieuwland 5mm Hooded Wetsuit

It's the middle of summer... air temperature is 28 degrees... water temperature is 19 degrees... there's a 1 foot swell down here on the south coast... however, I have been wearing my new Nieuwland 5mm hooded wetsuit around the house and you know, so far so good!

As usual, the build quality of the suit is exemplary, the design touches are well thought through and the fit is exacting, so trust that Size Guide!

So, I'm looking forward to the gnarly winter storm fronts rolling in, and I'm sure that whatever fury Mother Earth sends us, the new suit will look after me and rise to the challenge!

Great suit!

Is more flexible than the first version of the suit. Hope it turns out to be as durable (My first suit kept me toasty warm for 4 winters).

Nieuwland 5 Hooded Wetsuit Rocks!

With the opening of the UrbnSurf wavepool in Melbourne, Australia I needed a god fitting, warm wetsuit to get me through the Melbourne winter - the Nieuwland 5 Hooded Wetsuit has changed my life. It fits perfectly, is WARM and paddling has not been affected at all. If only it could help magically improve my surfing!

Ps if Finisterre made gloves and booties, it’s be the perfect kit...!

Excellent warm suit,

My third of these suits. The first ones were of less flexible rubber, but lasted very well. They have always been tight across the shoulders to get on and off, but offer fantastic warmth and great shoulder flexibility. Made for a surfer's shape so an XL does not come with a large amount of excess material around the waist, as is the case for most other XL suits. The most recent suit did not last for quite so long as previous suits. That could be down to greater use. Given the lifespan of just over a year my original reason for choosing Finisterre, being longer lasting and less environmental impact falls away to some extent so I will reconsider other suits this time, which I have not done at the end of the last 2 suits.
