And, here are the best wetsuits in the world! Lovingly photographed, worn by some of your favourite surfers and garnished with fruit. And, accompanied by every tip you might need to ensure your new rubber lives a long and happy life, as told by those who really know. Now, just choose your flavour…

Daniel Jones: “I’m from the tropics and on my first trip to Japan as a grom, I was bogging putting on a wet fullsuit. This Japanese guy showed me if you put a plastic bag on your hand or foot you slide right through. I still do this with new 6mm and 5mm suits, but still haven’t figured out how to put wetsuit gloves and boots on quick enough. But, my biggest tip? Always have a dry back up for the afternoon session.”
