Another year, another wetsuit roundup, and this time we look back on the best-selling wetsuits of 2019. This year, we saw a lot of welcome upgrades from the wetsuit companies, most notably on a few Billabong and Rip Curl suits.

Now that the new year has passed, we’ve looked back and reviewed the numbers to find the most popular suits of 2019.
