FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT

How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 1)
The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing wetsuit is the water temperature. Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year. Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range: Warm water above 20°C. Temperate water between 17 and 22°C. Cold water between 12 and 17°C. Very cold water between 7 and 12°C. Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your spot.
How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 2)
The 2nd criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models. Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer (and more watertight) and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models. NB: the 900 models are easier to put on.
Choose the right size
To make the most of the features of your wetsuit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the wetsuit gets wet. If you choose a wetsuit that is too big, folds will appear, you will experience irritation and thermal insulation will be reduced (letting in water). Try it on before you buy it!
How does neoprene work?
By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a wetsuit works in two ways: 1- The trapped water gradually warms up 2- The heat transfer from the body decreases. The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
Materials
Tribord 900 wetsuits are made from 100% ultra-stretch neoprene to ensure thermal insulation and ultra flexibility. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 5 and 4 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties. The flexibility of the 900 range is provided by the super-stretch properties of the foam and the textile.
Neck
The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation. According to the sensitivity of the wearer, a UV top can be worn under the wetsuit to reduce the risk of irritation. The application of grease (e.g. Vaseline) in friction areas (neck, underarms, knees) is also recommended if wearing the wetsuit for long periods.
Maximum freedom of movement
The Tribord 900 men's wetsuit collection has a cut and materials that were specifically chosen to increase freedom of movement as much as possible and to make paddling easier. The entire wetsuit is made from ultra-stretch neoprene. All the seams are stretch seams. The front zip totally frees up the back during use.
Zip / Removable hood
The 900 5/4 Switch wetsuit benefits from our new removable hood. Depending on the conditions and your preferences, you can choose between a normal collar or hood built directly into the suit. This variation is permitted by the two zips used in the opening system. The front zip that fastens across the front of the chest ensures freedom of movement while providing a better watertight seal than a traditional back zip. The zip slider is made of stainless steel to withstand exposure to salt water.
Magnet fastening / Pacemaker warning Key pocket
Magnets can interfere with the proper functioning of pacemakers and implantable defibrillators. • A pacemaker could switch into test mode and cause faintness. • A defibrillator may stop working. • If you wear either of these devices, keep a sufficient distance away from magnets. NB: There is a key pocket in the front panel under the zip.
Watertight assembly
The seams are stitched and glued to ensure a watertight seal and durability. The seams are "blind-stitched", meaning the thread does not entirely pass through the neoprene, preventing water getting through.To further enhance the watertight seal and durability of the assembly of our 900 ranges, they are fully taped on the inside. The absence of threads on the inside also avoids irritation and chafing. Patches for comfort and reinforcement are strategically placed on the inside in sensitive areas.
Water stoppers
The ankles and wrists feature silicone stoppers to help stop water getting in. They also help keep the suit firmly in place when using gloves and boots.
Windproof honeycombed neoprene
Windproof panel on the chest of the wetsuit (Fine Mesh smooth neoprene) to prevent the shivering which can occur as a result of windchill when surfing, bodyboarding, windsurfing or kitesurfing. Lined with a hollow honeycombed interior that provides even more insulation from the cold, this component improves the thermal comfort of the suit.
Quick drying
The 900 5/4 SWITCH wetsuit features a new brushed fleece inner lamination. This enables not only a minimal weight increase in the water but also ultra-fast drying. It can therefore be used several times a day while still keeping a dry feel when put on.
Stay warm for longer thanks to our thermal accessories! Each temperature range has its own outfit...
When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories: - in warm water and temperate water (>17°C) => neoprene low booties. - in cold water (12 - 17°C): High booties (boots) and gloves. - in very cold water (7 - 12°C): High booties (boots), gloves, hood and hooded top...

Multi-water sports wetsuits
Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).

    Best wet suit I have ever used
    Nice fit, warm,well built Putting in on / taking off is a bit tight

    I have had hundreds of wetsuits and this one was by far the best.
    Good movement and most important keeps you warm, I had it on for 6 hours in cold Atlantic water and felt like I was in a warm swimming pool :)
    Then when I used it in hot water it felt like the same tempature do I don't get over hot.
    A bit tight putting on and taking off, you might need some help, however this is the same on all neck entery suits :)
