The Surf Industry Manufacturing Award-winning Flashbomb 3/2 GB wetsuit from Rip Curl is a favorite among cold wave surfers seeking the ultimate in performance, durability, and lightweight flexibility. This season's chest-zip Flash Bomb has been updated with a streamlined E5 neoprene, making it lighter and stretchier than the original model. E5 still provides the same warmth-to-weight ratio but gives you the sensation that the suit is thinner than it is when you're surfing.
Warm and super quick to dry
The Flashbomb sports two layers of E5 Flash lining to help transport water out of the suit so it dries faster. Hang the suit up after a morning session and it'll be dry for the mid-afternoon swells.
The glued and blind-stitched construction delivers durability and strength at stretch points, while the E5 internal seam taping and Aqauban plus tape stop water entry without limiting your manoeuvrability.
Top quality seam sealing for water-tight performance
When you're out in the water, the Hydro-loc collar stops flushing, while the three-hole drainage system quickly leaks away any water that makes its way inside your suit.
The wetsuit also features s-flex kneepads, which are stretchy and provide protection where you need it most while you're surfing and paddling. It also has a magnetic stash pocket to store your keys in while you're surfing.
