Wetsuits Online at Alpine Beach
We’ve been surfing all over the world for 40 years and so we know a thing or two about what makes a wetsuit perform and we know that it can never be overrated. There is nothing worse than having to paddle in because shivering on your board is becoming unbearable.
Our stock of wetsuits in Australia take a whole lot of factors into consideration and no matter what your budget or skill level you’ll find what you’re looking for from Patagonia, Peak, Quiksilver, Roxy and Xcel.
Types of wetsuit
Different conditions call for different wetsuits and we’ve got them all. These are your options in our online surf store:
Full suit steamers and short sleeve steamers: Full suit for complete warmth in cold conditions, half sleeve steamers that leave your arms free for comfortable paddling.
Long Jane and Long John Suits: Exactly what you think it is. Warm wetsuits without the arms that go long down the legs.
Spring suits: Long arm or short arm. Free legs and arms to get that mobility, but a torso that stays warm. Great for warmer weather.
Vests: Long arm or short arm wetsuit tops or rashies to keep your chest and stomach scratch-free and protected from the sun when you are out on your board. Perfect for tropical waters.
Choosing Your Wetsuit from Alpine Beach
Whenever you are buying a wetsuit online it’s important to keep a couple of things in mind. Always get a wetsuit that is going to keep you warm and comfortable, make sure you get the right suit to match the water conditions, so if you’re surfing in really cold temperatures ensure you don’t head out with just a rashie.
Finding the right wetsuit fit is super important, a poorly fitted wetsuit can be very uncomfortable and ruin your fun, so make sure you know what size you are (use a sizing guide) at least try one on before you spend your hard-earned cash.
Lastly, wetsuits aren’t the clunky, boring things that they once were and it’s important to identify key features while keeping your personal style in mind. Modern suits come with different features such as chest zips, various neoprene’s, fully sealed seams and a variety of colours. All these new features can be confusing so our team at Alpine Beach can assist when it comes to finding the perfect wetsuit for you.
