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…

Jordy Smith: “I’m lucky enough to always have a dry wettie these days but if I don’t have one on hand and it’s cold out, I’ll do the old towel trick. Lay your towel down, then lay your wetsuit on top of it. Roll the towel and wetsuit up so it looks like a fruit roll-up. The tighter the better. Take both sides and bend it into a horseshoe shape back and forth, stand on top of it, jump on it, whatever. After a few minutes, pull the wettie and towel apart and bang, you’ve got a semi-dry wetsuit that’s much easier to put on than the dripping suit you had before.”
