Spencer Says:

The Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded is the ultimate wetsuit when it comes to cold water comfort. If you could only have one wetsuit for cold water, this is your suit. It literally feels like you're wearing a fleece blanket body suit. The new E5 neoprene is super flexible, while the strategically placed E5 taping ensures you remain dry. The Flash lining really does live up to its name. If you wake up early for a dawn patrol session your suit will be dry and ready for the evening glass off. It's a breeze to get on and off, the hood fits snug, what more do you need? I'm really stoked on this finely crafted suit from Rip Curl.


Start your session with one of the best, the award winning Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Wetsuit. Offering premium features for paddling into frigid waves, and a proven performance driven design, this is the ultimate suit for surfing balmy, hostile conditions. Delivering more stretch and a faster drying time, the improved Flash Bomb Wetsuit has a lighter weight and lower profile for a snug fit and incredible comfort. Rip Curl's E5 Neoprene, combined with their award winning Flash Dry Lining, provides a soft and cozy interior and creates a flexible suit that moves and stretches comfortably with your body. Offering a warm, cozy hood, a secure chest zip entry and a watertight, slimline bead of Aquaban + seam seal on the lower three quarters of the suit, the Rip Curl Hooded Flash Bomb Wetsuit ensures warmth for your entire session.

Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Sweet!Review by LittleG LittleG
I surf the Atlantic Northeast and this suit has been super warm and flexible. The fleece lining is great and it's pretty easy to get into. I wasn't sure about size but the M fits fine (I'm 5'-9" 145lbs.) I went with this suit after reading many reviews but I purchased from Cleanline because their reviews were by far the most helpful, so glad I did because not only did I get my suit super fast they threw in a free t-shirt, a personal note and some Starburst!!

Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit SickReview by Greg Greg
I’m super happy with this suit—so far it’s been total serene comfort surfing for 2-3 hour sessions in the northeast in December (water and air temp in 40s). Very flexible and dries overnight. Medium fits me perfectly (5’10” 170 lbs). Customer service at cleanline is indeed very very good.

Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Awesome Suit Extremely WarmReview by KenyonBauer KenyonBauer
I just bought this suit and tried it out the day after it came in the mail. It's amazing, it keeps me extremely warm and toasty in the cold winter PNW water. I really love the flashlining, and the fact that it covers the entire inside, unlike the 2016 flashbomb. If you want an extremely warm suit, with amazing flexibility, the FlashBomb 5/4 is for you. But don't forget Cleanline's awesome service, I got my package in 3 days with free shipping. And with a 15% off code, I got 70$ off the suit, they even threw in a shirt and handwritten note.

Rip Curl Flash Bomb 5/4 Hooded Chest Zip Wetsuit Epic suitReview by salmonbaypaddle salmonbaypaddle
I purchased the 2015 version of this suit a few years back and it's been a problem solver for those cold PNW fall-late spring sessions in surf and whitewater. The suit is completely dry and despite its apparent thickness feels like a 4/3.
