Care Instructions

Proper care of your wetsuit is critical to ensure its longevity. Here are some care instructions to keep in mind:

    1. Rinse your wetsuit thoroughly with fresh water after each use. This will remove salt, sand, and other debris that may cause damage or odor.

    2. Avoid exposing your wetsuit to direct sunlight or extreme heat (e.g. washer and dryer) as this can cause the neoprene to break down prematurely.

    3. Hang your wetsuit by the waist or lay it flat to dry in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Contrary to popular belief, hanging your wetsuit on a hanger (even if it is a wide arm hanger) will cause the shoulder panels to over-stretch and thin.

    4. Never use a washing machine or dryer to clean your wetsuit as this can cause damage to the neoprene and materials.

    5. Store your wetsuit in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.

    6. Avoid folding or creasing your wetsuit as this can cause permanent damage to the neoprene.

    7. Lastly, but probably most importantly, always put on and take off your wetsuit carefully, to avoid tearing or damaging the materials. This includes changing on rough surfaces. Also, avoid using sharp objects near the suit, and/or be aware of things like bushes and sharp tailgates.

By following these care instructions, you can help extend the life of your wetsuit and ensure that it continues to perform at its best.
