Wetsuits keep you nice and warm in the water. To find the right neoprene thickness, it is good to know in which water temperature you will be surfing. A 3/2 mm wetsuit is sufficient for the Dutch summer. But for the real winter sessions you must have a 5 mm wetsuit. The longest surfable thickness in our North Sea is a 4/3 mm wetsuit. This allows you to surf from April to October. If you are still feeling chilly, you can purchase a cap
or a vest. These accessories can give you that extra bit of warmth you’re missing!
