If you want to feel like a superhero, start surfing. If you want to dress like a superhero, start surfing now! 2016 has ushered in a new era in women’s wetsuit design. Gone are the days when wetsuit manufacturers could get away with slapping a floral print on an otherwise male-inspired wetsuit. Thanks to some fresh perspectives and strategic partnerships with designers who actually get it, we’re seeing the emergency of surf power suits that can only be described as ‘heroine chic’.
One of the most exciting partnerships this year saw Twelfth Street’s Cynthia Vincent team up with O’Neill to create one of the most stunning wetsuits to date. The O’Neill Cynthia Vincent Bara Springsuit adorns a powerful yet sexy bronze exterior that’s tailor made for the modern heroine. Not only is this intrepid wetsuit a full on head-turner but it’s also highly functional with 2mm neoprene throughout and long sleeves that will help keep the chill off well into late summer.
If being a real-life bronze statue isn’t superhero enough for you, step into The Hermosa Surfsuit by Seea. This wetsuit brilliantly combines a fun, flirty design with Lynda Carter power curves that will make you feel unstoppable. Lasso of Truth not included.
Want to turn your local beach into the world’s longest catwalk? With stylish laser-cut accents and a cheeky seat covering, the one-piece Rip Curl Cutting Edge Surf Suit will have you feeling on top of the world – before you even hit the waves! If Kim Kardashian were a surfer, we’re pretty sure this would be the surf suit she’d be wearing.
From catwalks to catsuits, if you’re looking for a sleek, sexy, sleeveless wetsuit, look no further than Billabong’s Surf Capsule Salty Jane. It has all the pedigree inherent with Billabong’s famous Salty Jane line plus the vivaciousness that can only be had with this new solid black, raceback, chest zip design. It’s gorgeous, highly functional and can be yours for less than $100!
