Funky and Colourful Wetsuits

In the past,it has been far easier to find wetsuits with funky and colourful designs.

In the 60s you had the era of ‘flower power’ and then the 1980s was the era of the brightest and most colourful wetsuits. Although these appear to have fallen out of fashion in adult suits in recent years, there is still a fair variety of choices for children.

Fortunately for those of us who are bored with the lack of identity or individuality in black on black wetsuits, over the last year or so, even the mainstream manufacturers have been adding in a bit more colour.


If you really want to stand out though, there are a handful of manufactures that provide some great colour schemes.

Currently The options for adults seem to fall into a number of groups as follows.

Camouflage patterns
Funky wetsuits – Images and patterns
Look like…a superhero etc

Why is the industry dominated black wetsuits? Are we afraid to stand out?  Is it because we thing we might look foolish if we aren’t that good at a particular sort?  It’s time to get over it.  Have fun, give yourself and others something to smile about choose an outrageous colour scheme!
