How to care for your Wetsuit
Properly caring for your wetsuit will ensure that it will last for many sessions to come. Our suits are designed with longevity in mind, but it’s essential that you wash, dry and store your wetsuit correctly to lengthen its life span.

Core Store: Surfe-Sjappa, Norway
Surfing in Norway isn’t for the fainthearted. With the recent bout of snow we’ve seen scattered across the UK, we might think we know what it’s like to surf in freezing conditions, but Norwegian locals and those that venture to Scandinavian shores know that the cold of England has nothing on the biting air and sea temperatures of Norway. If you’re planning on heading over on a surf trip, you’ll need to be prepared.
