Differences in stretch in wetsuits and why you need to pay attention

16 may 2017

Flexibility in wetsuits: it’s all about the material.

Why you should pay attention to the degree of flex of your neoprene? Riding your PWC requires less flexibility than performing a back roll to revert on your wakeboard. But no matter which one you choose, at Jobe we understand no one wants a wetsuit that feels like a cardboard.

We design all our wetsuits with the finest, most flexible neoprene around.

- Regular neoprene.
Normal flexible neoprene. Perfect for day-to-day watersports that do not require a lot of flexy moves. This wetsuits are medium-flexible and very strong, though, and are therefore perfect for rental locations , where there is continuous pressure on the wetsuit. You’ll find these kind of neoprene in our basics like the Atlanta and Savannah.

- Full stretch.
One of our designers stood up and said: you can never have enough flex & stretch. After a long search the first wetsuits with the most flexiest and luxurious neoprene where born.. These wetsuit are perfect for flex leg-in-neck moves, like with wakeboarding. You’ll find this super stretchy neoprene in our Steamers, in the Portland, Perth, Victoria, Vienna, Sofia and SUP-wetsuits. Super comfortable, easy to get in and out and suited for all watersports.
