Features include an extra 5mm lumbar patch and high pile lining for increased heat retention, wide internal seam tape and our signature calf loops to aid entry and exit.  

Wetsuits ship worldwide for free.


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 to get the right 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 Paige is wearing a size 8 and is 5’8” / 173cm tall, chest 35” / 89cm, waist 29” / 73.5cm, hips 35.5” / 90cm

  • Please note we use UK sizes

Details

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

  • Designed for sea temperatures in the region of 8-14°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 in key areas, reducing water penetration; also adhering better to the suit, improving the durability

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

  • Made in Taiwan

Gorgeous

In all honesty, I haven't worn it yet. I live in Wisconsin and bought this for year-round surfing and swimming in Lake Michigan. I can comment that it is truly gorgeous and feels wonderful to the touch. I am really happy with the customer service process that I went through before purchasing. Shipping was fast and secure. I can't wait to try out the suit and will have to update after. I have been really satisfied with all my Finisterre produts, the company's ethos and values, and I am so happy to support them with my $.

Best wetsuit I've owned

I was in need of a new winter suit so after doing a fair bit of research decided on the Nieuwland 4. I was keen to have a wetsuit from an environmentally conscious company and of course, one that keeps me warm. The size options are great, I settled on an 8s, (I'm 5'3" 27' waist 34'chest) and the fit is perfect. (I don't have large hips and I know this has been an issue for some customers) It is tight the first time you try it but you feel a slight loosen after the first surf so after a few sessions its not difficult to get on or off. (I didn't need help getting it off :) I've not owned a hooded wetsuit before and I won't be going back, I also like the fact that the hood rests under my chin. I thought the calf straps were a nice addition and do help with getting it on. The closed-end zipper is hidden so zipping is super easy. No cold flush on my wrists. It's a 10/10 from me.

Great suit but not the easiest to put on or took off

Really good suit and very warm , very good fit

Only problem is that I can't take it off on my own ... might get easier later

Best wetsuit I've ever worn but watch out for sizing

Buying this wetsuit was a hard decision between this one and a similar Billabong one that was made from recycled tyres. I went for the Finisterre one as I ethically agreed with their values and there seemed to be a lot more research behind it. I used it for the first time surfing at Perranporth in October, and was not even cold! Didn't feel the need for the hood or boots or gloves, and I didn't get any flushing. October is still probably quite a warm month of the year in terms of sea temperature, but the wetsuit did also feel lovely. I normally wear a size 12 clothing, but I bought a size 10 wetsuit after reading the size chart, and the size 10 fits perfectly. Very snug and well fitted and dries quickly. Would definitely recommend. The only downside I'd say is that it's a bit difficult to get out of (a two man job or a 10 min job on my own), but that could be because it's still new and I haven't worn it that much.

Great fit, thoughtful touches, I love it!

I absolutely love this suit. It fits really well. I guess everyone's body shape is different but this fits me perfectly. I particularly like the tension wrist bands - they are fab! And the calf loops - godsend in a car park! It sounds weird but I love the inside too. It's got lovely colours that just make you feel good. It is really warm and easy to surf in.
