Wetsuit technology has come a long way since surfers first started exploring colder waters. Today wetsuits are warmer, more flexible, and more comfortable than ever before. Each year brings new advancements to make surfing more enjoyable, and 2019 is no exception. We’ve reviewed our hooded suits and after talking to customers, employees, and team riders, these are the 6 best wetsuits for cold water surfing.
The Flash Bomb Heat Seeker is one of the most unique suits we’ve ever carried at the shop and one of our most asked-about pieces of gear. After years of research and development, Rip Curl released the Heat Seeker to a lot of hype. Now that the suit has proven itself in the water, we’re excited to present a full in-depth review.
We’ve gone through the numbers and have now updated our best selling booties list for 2019. Between the six boots mentioned below, every type of surfer can be satisfied. Whether you are looking for quality, comfort, warmth, durability, or affordability, Cleanline has your feet covered.
To boil it down even further, we’ve organized the list into 3 categories, overall popularity, performance, and value.
Another year, another wetsuit roundup, and this time we look back on the best-selling wetsuits of 2018.

The old favorites still fill out much of this list, however there’s some newcomers like the Furnace Absolute, which despite being out for only a couple months, has held its own here. Now that the new year has passed, we’ve looked back and reviewed the numbers to find the most popular suits of 2018.
*For this list we’re including less common thicknesses like a straight 3mm or a 3.5mm in the most similar category. In this example, the 3/2mm section.
