We are fast approaching that time of the year where we are changing from our winter wetsuits to summer wetsuits.
On-line and in-store winter wetsuits are coming on sale. At Triocean our full range of summer wetsuits are on the shelves; Triocean Surf’s Tom has even been seen out surfing in his 2 mm short arm long leg Xcel wetsuit last week. So what should we be doing before we pack away our winter wetsuits for hopefully a long hot summer?
To increase the longevity and freshness of your winter wetsuit it’s best to rinse them out with wetsuit shampoo before we pack it away for the summer.
This is what we do:
1. Get your wetsuit, wetsuit bucket (filled with cold fresh water) and wetsuit shampoo ready.
2. Add the wetsuit shampoo into the bucket (2 capfuls per 4 litres of water).
3. Give the water and shampoo a stir.
5. Throw out existing shampooed water and add fresh clean water to your bucket. Rinse your wetsuit as you do normally after each surf.
6.Hang to dry out naturally.
To eliminate further odour from wetsuits, boots and gloves you can use Odour eliminator.
