How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 1)
The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing wetsuit is the water temperature. Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year. Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range: Warm water above 68°F. Temperate water between 62 and 72°F. Cold water between 53 and 62°F. Very cold water between 44 and 53°F. Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your spot.
How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 2)
The 2nd criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models.
Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer (and more watertight) and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models.
Choose the right size
To make the most of the features of your wetsuit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the wetsuit gets wet. If you choose a wetsuit that is too big, folds will appear, you will experience irritation and thermal insulation will be reduced (letting in water).

How does neoprene work?
By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a wetsuit works in two ways:
1- The trapped water gradually warms up
2- The heat transfer from the body decreases.
The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
This Tribord 500 neoprene top is made with 100% neoprene to ensure even better thermal insulation.
The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear.
Neoprene thickness: 2 mm.
Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
We test and guarantee the thermal quality of our neoprene materials.
The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation. The application of grease (e.g. Vaseline) in friction areas (neck, underarms) is also recommended if wearing the wetsuit for long periods.
Our zips and fastenings are laboratory tested in order to ensure an optimal lifespan and good resistance to salt water. We position the opening at the front of the top to make it easier to get on. This configuration is suited to the female body shape and is suitable for the lying-down position while paddling.
Freedom of movement
The Tribord 500 women's neoprene top has a cut and materials designed to increase freedom of movement and make paddling easier: There are no underarm or armpit seams and the entire top is made from ultra-flexible neoprene with stretch seams.
Perfect for sun protection while doing water sports. The long sleeves limit tan lines.
Stay warm for longer thanks to our thermal accessories! Each temperature range has its own outfit...
When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head).
Consequently, here are the recommended accessories:
- in warm water and temperate water (>63°F) => neoprene low booties.
- in cold water (53 - 62°F): High booties (boots) and gloves.
- in very cold water (44 - 53°F): High booties (boots), gloves, hood and hooded top...Find our entire range of neoprene accessories at decathlon.fr
