Last month we asked our Facebook Fans, Newsletter Subscribers, and people visiting our Blog a question:
Which zipper type do you prefer in a wetsuit, Back Zip or Chest Zip?
Not surprisingly the amount of people preferring Chest Zip Wetsuits was more than double the people who preferred Back Zips.
Check out #7 in our Misconceptions About Wetsuits article for more on the Back Zip vs Chest Zip debate.
Why do you like the zipper type you like? Let us know in the comments section below.
The Rip Curl Flash Bomb Wetsuit has done it again. Winning the SIMA Wetsuit of the Year Award for the 2nd year consecutively. Here’s the press release from Rip Curl, followed by a trailer video for the SIMA Awards that were held a few days ago.
Costa Mesa, CA (February 9, 2013): The Best Just Got Better. Rip Curl’s extremely honored and humbled to win the 2012 SIMA Image Awards’ “Wetsuit of the Year” for the FLASH BOMB for the second consecutive year. The awards took place this past February 7 at The Grove Theater in Anaheim, California.
The award, which aims to recognize the wetsuit that “featured the most exciting design, appeal, or innovation”, was a true credit to the Rip Curl wetsuit department who took the success of the award-winning Flash Bomb and worked diligently to improve it.
Boasting Flash Lining, which wicks water from the interior of the suit within seconds of being exposed to the air, the FLASH BOMB is dry to the touch in roughly 15 minutes after surfing when hung up; hence, “World’s Fastest Drying Wetsuit”.
Rip Curl would like to thank and recognize all the valued specialty retail partners nationally who have contributed to the success of the FLASH BOMB, as well as our world-class roster of athletes who have played a major role in the development process.
This will be the first time the contest has been held in Puerto Rico since 2010. Check it out live over at Rip Curl’s website starting tomorrow Feb, 9th.
John John Florence, brothers Ivan and Nathan, Kiron Jabour, Koa Rothman, Matt Meola and more. Big airs, barrels, beach breaks, and a bit of skateboarding. Sick. Sick. SICK.
