  • Guide to a Summer Wetsuit

    A Guide To Your Summer Wetsuit

    It looks like the warmer weather is coming and with the school holidays not too far away now either, some of you may be lucky enough to be heading west to Cornwall for a week or two! (jealous!)
    One of the main things that is a must on a holiday regardless of where you are is getting into the sea and have a go at Bodyboarding or surfing.
    So we thought we would give you a heads up on what might be ideal for our dear English sea. Below you will find a few wetsuits and bits and bobs that we have picked out and are quite popular amongst our customers and staff to make your time away that bit more awesome!

    What Does The 3/2mm Of Wetsuit Mean?
    All wetsuits we have picked are 3/2mm wetsuits ideal for the summer months. What does this mean you’re probably thinking? It simply means the 3mm part is the thickness in millimetres of the neoprene around the core of your body to keep your organs warmer. The 2mm area covers your legs and arms. The reason for the difference in thickness is simply so the thinner neoprene offers more flexibility so you can carry out the sport in hand with ease of movement.

    Starting with the kids, we have a wide range of colours for the O’Neill Reactors, both in  shorty and full length suits. These offer a full dose of performance for a great value with technology such as FluidFlexTM (improving the movement in the shoulders and sleeves), and an adjustable super seal neck with a YKK back zip to keep the water out and you warm. These suits are an ideal entry suit for anyone that wants to get in the water!

    Some of the O'Neill Reactors Avaliable O'Neill Kid Reactors

    Sunsuits for toddlers are perfect for wearing on the beach and dipping between the rock pools. They even offer UV protection so just like a rash vest would,  their skin is protected. With a back zip entry, they are a no hassle suit and won’t irritate. These are made out of neoprene and don’t offer the same warmth as a wetsuit would, but are a great all round suit. It’s ideal to get an O’Neill Toddler Reactor if you intend to head into the sea, these are 2mm thick and provide a bit more warmth.

    If you’re likely to give surfing a go then the Rip Curl Dawn Patrol is ideal. This suit is available in a chest zip or back zip style. Again another high quality suit for a great price. These suits are ultra-light with Rip Curls E4 neoprene offering all the stretch you need in the right places!  A great feature is the batwing system, this has been designed to combat those coldwater flushes (water entry) and get rid of the water so you can surf for longer without getting colder quicker.

    Finally ladies, there is the Womens O’Neill Bahia 3/2mm wetsuit. This suit was designed for those which wanted to bring beauty personality and confidence to the water. This suit is 100% super stretchy and has flatloc stitched seams so water can move in and out discreetly and most importantly keep you warm!

    All full length suits mentioned above have the right padding and support that your knees need to protect them from friction against the sand, pebbles or your board.

    Some people like to keep their feet warm too! We stock a range of boots and shoes for completing that summer holiday in the sea!

  • Great news for C-Skins as Glenn Hall joins their team

    For Micro the decision to align with a fresh new wetsuit company that manufactures world class wetsuits was a no brainer. After penning a 2 year deal, Glenn remarked “I'm thrilled to be on the C-Skins team and look forward to working with the crew to keep up the amazing quality of wetsuits they already manufacture. Knowing I will be wearing the best wetsuits, boots and gloves this year makes me more confident than ever competing at all the coldwater spots on tour.”  

    C-SKINS have said that “Micro’s talent and pure drive is unquestioned. We are stoked to align ourselves with such a great talent and we look forward to going forward with Glenn as one of the key players in our International Team”

    Glenn Hall C Skins

    Micro was born and raised in Australia and remains a proud Aussie, but his decision to surf under the Irish flag has meant he is the first surfer to fly the Irish flag on the ASP WCT. In a recent interview on, Hall states that he is proud of both his Irish and Australian heritage and when the opportunity to surf for Ireland came up a few years ago he liked the idea of representing the country and trying to give the younger generation in Ireland someone to follow in competitive surfing.

    Micro wants to get the most out of his equipment and wetsuits is a key part of this. “Micro’s ability to relay feedback on our wetsuits and test our product will also help keep C-SKINS at the forefront of wetsuit design & innovation and as the wetsuit of choice for core surfers”.

  • C-Skins Team Rider takes 2nd Place at 3-Star Protest Vendee Pro!

    Vincent Duvignac, C-Skins FRANCE team rider came second place at the 2012 ASP 3-Star Protest Vendee Pro in a close fought low scoring final in shifting 4-5Ft wind affected peaks. Progressing solidly through the early rounds of competition, Duvignac, labeled the events ‘overall standout’ was finally beaten to the top spot by Marlon Lipke (DEU).

    Vincent Duvignac, 24, only needed a small score to overtake his opponent but never found the wave that he needed. Duvignac has been on top form during the whole event netting the highest single wave score and heat total of the 2012 Protest Vendee Pro.

    It was frustrating because I had a good score and I just missed a second decent wave, Duvignac stated. It’s been a really hard contest with difficult waves breaking everywhere and the luckiest guys got two good waves in the previous heats. I’m a little disappointed because I was that close to winning my first Star event. But a second place is a great way to start the year, winning ranking points and a little prize money to allow me to travel to future events.

    With an excellent first result this season, Duvignac hopes to capitalize on his ranking which will help him demonstrate his talent and fulfill his potential as a pro surfer. The young natural footer displayed a fantastic flawless style in Vendee this week and will soon export his abilities to compete against the World’s best in California for an ASP Prime event.

    Vincent’s next event is Trestles where he hopes to continue his success with a good result, and from there he will be focusing on the European Tour where he will make a run for the Title.

    Needless to say, C-Skins are stoked for Vincent and are sure this is just the first of many great results in 2012.
