Wetsuit season is upon us.....here's your need to know wetsuit guide for winter 2018

It’s been a long hot summer here in San Diego and WOW, we have been so lucky with these water temps! After endless months of throwing on the lycra, these early November dawn patrol sessions have got a little teeth chatteringly tough. recent strong and chilly offshore winds and the arrival of new NW windswells keep dropping those water temps weekly. So, if it’s time you upgraded your neoprene to keep the goosebumps at bay this winter …. we’ve got everything you need!

Here at Progression Surf we carry O’Neill and RipCurl wetsuits and accessories in store and stock a variety of styles and price points for all your needs. Whether you’re sticking to local SoCal breaks, taking a trip south of the border or heading to more tropical climates this winter we have a huge selection of neoprene for you to choose from.
