Wetsuits

wetsuit cover

We think we’ve got one of the best selections of Wetsuits in Cork and we’re getting lots of enquiries lately about what we stock.   We decided to pull together a list of some of the highlights.  Bear in mind that stock is seasonal and subject to availability.  Regarding price, we make every effort to be competitive with online sites such as Magicseaweed and will do our best to price match any suit or surf accessory.

We’ll start at the bottom of the price scale and work up.

TWF.

Basic 3mm Summer suits. Not super stretchy but people find them comfy. The great thing about these suits is the price….€60 for a full adult suit is pretty good. However, they’re more for splashing around in the sea as opposed to serious surfing.

Alder

We love Alder at Wild Side Sports. Phil’s first wetsuit when he was a nipper (16) was an Alder suit and it lasted him until his early 20’s when the seams started to go. 😉

They do good quality suits at affordable prices.  We stock them throughout the year so we have Winter and Summer weights available.

best of all it drys in 15 minutes. The seams on the lower body are strengthened with S-Seal while the
duratec knees use specific foam and nylon for tough but flexible performance.

Great suit at a great price! You get a hood with each suit (detachable).

Billabong Surf Capsule Collection – new in for Summer 2014

The Billbong Surf capsule collection has just arrived into Wild Side Sports and we are in love with it, it’s retro, cool and most importantly, made from a super stretchy neoprene.

Looking for something a bit different this Summer? Do you mind having cold legs? No? Well this ‘Spring Suit’ from Billabong could be perfect for you!

Salty Spring Suit - €99.99

Salty Spring Suit – €99.99

This cutting edge shorty jane suit offers a hybrid design of a long sleeve sprint suit with a one-piece bottom. Made from 2mm of top quality neoprene, it provides the perfect amount of warmth and rash protection for the summer months (IF…..you lived in Oz).

Not for you but like the style? Then this one offers a bit more coverage but….your arms will be cold (can’t win can you?). So pretty…

Long John - €104.50

Long John – €104.50

Lastly, if having legs and arms covered while in the freezing Irish sea is important to you, but you still want to look good then this Spring Suit could be for you. Now, it’s only 3mm so don’t get too excited but imagine just how how fab you’d look in it!

Salty Daze LS Spring Suit - €179.99

Salty Daze LS Spring Suit – €179.99

The Salty Dayz 302 Fullsuit is a twin needle self tie blind stitch with 80% 10mm impact welded internal seams/triple glued and blind stitched internal seams. Heat tape stress point reinforced.

Hope you like them as much as I do. Sizes 8, 10 and 12 are all in stock now. No size 14 or above I’m afraid – Billabong haven’t made them in those sizes…booo (sizest or wha?)

Intruders

Intruders are the budget (or should I say ‘value’) option in the Billabong Range. Not quite as cheap as Alder Impact suits but not far off and some people prefer the fit of these – technology wise they’re pretty equal to the Impacts.  They come in Adult and Kids and in 5mm and 3mm.  We also do Kid’s Shorties during the summer.

Men's 5mm Intruder - €119.99
Men’s 5mm Intruder – €119.99

Fully glued and blind stitched winter wetsuit for €119.99 but bear in mind it’s not as flexible or as warm (lining wise) as the Foil.  Also available in Ladies (black and peach).

Junior Intruder 5mm Winter

Junior Intruder 5mm Winter Suit - €84.99
Junior Intruder 5:4:3 mm Winter Suit – €84.99

The Junior version of the Intruder is very popular. Glued and blind stitched. Features ZG400 Superflex, Drymax Back Zip and seamless suppratex knees.  Ages 8-16.

Xcel

If you’re looking for a serious wetsuit then Xcel is where it’s at. They have a reputation for exceptional product quality and performance: maximum stretch and durability, sealed-seam construction, and a fit that feels custom-made every time.

Xcel has been voted Surf Industry Manufacturer’s Association (SIMA) “Wetsuit of the Year” by its industry peers three times (2007, 2008, 2010).

Drylock Powerseam Hooded

Drylock Power Seam Hooded 5/4 - €499.99
Drylock Power Seam Hooded 5/4 – €499.99

The priciest wetsuit in the shop! The Drylock Power Seam represents the highest quality and most advanced seams and materials, with all new Power Seam technology. A stitch-free, durable Power Seam composite over all outer seams makes this the strongest, most watertight Drylock yet.  There’s a list of features as long as my arm but if you’re considering this suit you’ve no doubt already lusted over it on the Xcel website.  We don’t carry a large stock of these because they are so expensive but if we don’t have your size we can order it. Go on…you deserve it!

Drylock 5-4mm Hooded

Drylock5-4mm Hooded
Drylock 5-4mm Hooded – €390…ish

Similiar to the Powerseam Drylock above (but without the Powerseam!).  Waterproof Drylock Zipper, inner crossover neck entry, quick dry fiber, drylock wrist seals, thermocarbon lining…the list goes on!

INFINITI X-ZIP2 5/4/3

5/4/3 INFINITI X-ZIP2 - €284.99
5/4/3 INFINITI X-ZIP2 – €284.99

With premium seams and materials, including 100% UltraStretch neoprene, the Infiniti X-Zip2 delivers a watertight front entry system for extra warmth and stretch on the colder days.

Infiniti OS 5-4mm Back-Zip

Xcel Infiniti 5-4 - €289.99
Xcel Infiniti 5-4 – €289.99

All that is great about the Infiniti Suits but with a back-zip. Named for its smarter back entry design, the OS offsets the back zipper from your spine for superior comfort, with a Water Barrier Inner Dam to reduce water flow into the suit.

Women’s SLX OS ZIP 5-4mm

SLX - €159.99
SLX – €159.99

The SLX Series delivers excellent warmth and stretch, with a smarter offset back zipper and glued & blindstitched seams.  Thermocarbon lining mades it cosy, and less seams = more stretch.

So there you have it. 

Hopefully that helps you get a feel for the kind of stock we have.  It’s not an exhaustive list by any means so give us a call if there is something you are looking for not featured above.
