Investing in a wetsuit is exciting as it can result in prolonging your adventures out on the water. Like all sporting equipment, a wetsuit needs to be cared for in order to get the best from it.
Maintaining your wetsuit is essential to its longevity. Although it might seem like an inconvenience, it’s worthwhile caring for and storing your wetsuit properly. If not, it can greatly hinder its quality and potential performance.
It doesn’t have to be difficult at all. Following a few simple steps, you can maintain your wetsuit’s shape and ensure it lasts for many more surfing adventures.
It’s common for watersports fans to develop skin rashes or inflammations when out on the water. There are many causes of such skin aggravations, particularly when the skin remains unprotected from the wetsuit material and seams. Where the material bunches up or when your body moves inside the suit, this can cause constant rubbing and result in abrasions – especially under the arms or around the neck. Rash vests (or guards) were therefore initially created to prevent such rubbing and potential skin rashes from forming.
