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.

Fabric Sourcing & Sustainability

Excellent

Moved to Aberdeen and needed something to deal with slightly chillier winds and waters. Fits beautifully and barely feel the water, gorgeous suit, tricky to get into at first but improving with every session.

Excellent Quality and Fit

Brilliant winter wetsuit that will keep you very warm in an Irish winter. The build quality is amongst the very best I have ever seen.

Seems good So far

Only two surfs in but warm, really warm. Pretty flexible. Getting in/out is ok once I’d worked out the right series of contortions.

Quality is good, hoping properly stitched and taped seams etc hold up better than a liquid seamed suit as that’s where both my Patagonia suits have failed.
