How to choose your SUP outfit according to the season ?
Stand Up Paddle is a very accessible nautical activity, you can practice it almost everywhere, at any age and in any season. It's fun, sporty, friendly... impossible not to be tempted by the idea of sliding on the water!
The first question that arises will be the choice of your equipment, but will come very quickly the choice of your outfit, which is not the same according to the seasons. Let's make a quick overview of your options according to the calendar!
Choose your SUP outfit for spring:
The weather is mild, the temperatures rise, the good resolutions of beginning
year are still here and you really want to stand up paddle.
If the weather seems hot for you, think that the water will be much less. That it is at sea, pond or river (the heated pools do not count). It’s essential to protect oneself from cold water but also from of the sun! For that we start with a full neoprene wetsuit in 3/2mm.
The season is progressing and the sun is definitely starting to show up. Take off the fullsuit and put on the Clovis 3/2mm long-sleeved neoprene shorty.
Choose your SUP outfit for the summer:
The summer season is here so as its heat. The idea of taking the sea air while doing a bit of sport delight you. What's more pleasant than slipin over the water?
This is the moment when the boardshort is essential, light and nice to wear.
However the sun is beating down and sunscreen is rarely sufficient for swim or long walks. Even if we really want to take the opportunity to refine your tan, we strongly advise you to wear a lycra t-shirt with UV protection. Prevention is better than cure.
Choose your paddleboarding outfit for fall:
It doesn't matter if the temperatures go down, you've fell in love with stand up paddle, a good way to decompress and get closer to nature after your work days.
Water is refreshes but the sun still makes us the honor of its presence and the heat could surprise you. So for the outfit we opt for the perfect combo : fullsuit neoprene in 3/2 or 4/3 mm according to your region that we complete with the zipped neoprene jacket Spencer Blue Line.
Choose your SUP outfit for the winter:
The cold season is here but you have not lost your taste for paddleboarding and nothing will stop you (anyway you are so trained that you do not even fall in the water no more right?).
Even if we blindly trust our stability and paddling, it's better in winter to opt for the full neoprene wetsuit for your SUP outings in 4/3 or 5/4 mm!
You are very sensible to low temperature? Then add the oversized unisex neoprene jacket!
