The top wetsuits compared to last years report have shifted a bit, but many of the same suits are still holding strong. When it comes to picking a new suit, there are plenty of ways to go about deciding which wetsuit is the best, but most come with some sort of bias.

Looking at the statistics I would say that about sums it up. The people have spoken, but I will put in my own two cents anyways. I really wish the O’Neill Pyrotech was higher up on the list because it is my favorite suit of all time(OK I’m done). It’s also worth noting that Rip Curl Wetsuits make up for half of the wetsuits on this list followed a bit over a quarter from O’Neill, while the 4th quarter is split up between Patagonia, Quiksilver, and Billabong. In the end it’s your decision on what wetsuit to buy, but if you ever need to talk wetsuits give us a call or shoot us an e-mail and as always feel free to browse our large selection online!
