Even as a young surfer, you know that there are always going to be days when trunking it just isn’t an option. Luckily, Quiksilver has a wide range of kids wetsuits to get your suited for any conditions mother nature throws your way. As surfers, we want to be able to enjoy our sport each day of the year, which means weather can not be an issue - that is what wetsuits are for. Wetsuits are a barrier between you and the elements so you can continue to surf as long as you want while staying warm and comfortable.
Quiksilver wetsuits are some of the best wetsuits on the market, and our wetsuits for kids are absolutely no exception. When it comes to getting in and out of your wetsuit it’s all about personal preference which is something, as a young surfer, you will develop over time. Originally, none of us had a choice in the matter and wetsuits were all back zip. These days we have kids wetsuits that offer front zip and chest zip access so that as you learn more about your surfing style and what makes you comfortable on your board, your choice in zipper location can be a part of that.
Zipper access is not the only thing to be learned about wetsuit construction. Perhaps more importantly, it’s good to understand how to choose the appropriate thickness of your wetsuits based on the conditions you will be surfing in. Quiksilver offers some of the best kids wetsuits and, as a result, we have options for every ocean temperature. While extreme surfing isn’t always recommended for the younger surfers, a 5mm full wetsuit is what you will need if you find yourself surfing in bitter cold conditions. If you live somewhere where the water is often cold and warmth is a top priority, you will stay toasty in a 4mm wetsuit - often referred to as a 4/3. A 3mm wetsuit, or a 3/2, is a common thickness because it can be worn in moderate/mid season conditions to keep you warm while not being super restrictive on your motion. For days when the weather isn’t really an issue but you still need some light protection a 2mm wetsuit will do the trick easily. You can always opt for a 2/2 spring suit as well if the water is really nice! As you learn more about kids wetsuits you will come to understand the effect choosing the right thickness has on your time in the water, and we are here every stroke of the way to help.
What are you waiting for? Don’t spend any more time out of the water than you need to. Now that you know more about how to choose the right kids wetsuits, head to Quiksilver’s online store and find the best wetsuits for you today. Our convenient online shopping experience and great customer service make choosing us a no brainer when you need to buy a wetsuit.
