Purchasing a wetsuit, especially if it is your first wetsuit, can be an intimidating experience. These suits cost a lot of money after all, and it's common to be filled with doubts.

This helps prevent bacteria from settling in your suit, which not only causes a bad smell but also attacks the material. Find out what you can do for your wetsuit in our care tips.
