HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT 3/2 NEOPRENE WETSUIT FOR SPRING

Spring is showing up, days are starting to be longer and temperatures warmer.

Even if it is not completely established, it will soon be time to pack hoods, gloves and boots.

For this time of the year, the neoprene fullsuit in 3/2mm is often the most adapted and will be the best transition for the summer.

It is the must have thickness in surfer wardrobe as it allow to ride through spring and autumn, and even summer in some regions. Like in the early morning sessions in the South West of France, the windy ones on the Mediterranean coast and very often in the North :)

We use a 3/2mm for water temperatures from 15 to 23°C.

The 3mm thickness on the torso and 2mm on the arms is very comfortable as it is easy to put on and allows a great range of movements. Wether it it for surfing, kitesurfing, wingfoiling, windsurfing or swimming, it is the wetsuit to have!

As there is a large choice of options for those famous mid season wetsuits, we are helping you to understand better our Saint Jacques range in order to chose the right model adapted to your needs.

As a reminder, here are the important criterias to take in consideration on a wetsuit: neoprene quality, seams type, taped seams, inside lining and finishes.
