rubber The 2011

Wetsuit Guide

to the nth degree

The 2011 range of wetsuits ALB recommends is certainly a long way from the footy jumpers the pioneers of our sport used to keep away the winter chills. Choose something from this range and you’ll even be warmer than the guys who used to gather around a burning pile of driftwood, or the acrid, black plumes of a car-tyre alight. And the warmth aspect is only a small part of their lustre, as each year sees developments that make the modern wetsuit perform more like a second skin.
