O'Neill's Epic wetsuit has gone through a redesign for 2010, and has come away with some of the high end features from O'Neill's ranges. The new Epic II CT has an Ultra Flex Firewall chest, double seal neck inclosure and Lumbar Seamless Design. The suit comes in a variety of thicknesses: 4/3mm for 10 - 15 degrees C and 3/2mm for those balmy 15 - 20 degrees C days.
Good value for money, Billabong's Foil summer wetsuit combines its Furnace thermal chest panel with its Airlite Superflex G3 fabric to give you more manoeuvrability in the water. The design includes 3D Moulded Supratex Knees to help prevent bruises from one too many pop ups, plus Billabong has thought about where they have placed their seams to help prevent chaffing.

Super stretch with a recore thermospan inner made from bamboo and recycled polyester- Gul's new summer wetsuit is environmentally friendly. The neoprene is non-petroleum, whilst still retaining warmth through blind stitching all the seams to help prevent flush. The shoulders are seam free, and wrists and ankles have the G-lock feature, so you can keep warmer and surf for longer.
