A fast-drying and super flexible cold water wetsuit

The 5/3 Rip Curl Flash Bomb is one of the fastest-drying cold water wetsuits in the surf industry. The wetsuit features a strong chest zipper, along with Rip Curl’s patented E4 neoprene. E4 has been designed for enhanced flexibility, and feels ultra-light and streamlined when you’re surfing, while still remaining extremely durable. 

The 5/3 ratio gives your extremities more lightweight maneuverability with 3mm neoprene, while your body’s core is kept warm with the thicker 5mm layer.

The Flash Bomb has Rip Curl’s glued and blind-stitched seamless tech, along with an Aquaban Plus seal. The seams have been further reinforced with E5 taping at stress points and on the extremities, which along with the GBS seams makes the wetsuit stretchy, well-sealed, and highly water resistant. It also has Rip Curl’s drainage hole technology, which quickly drains any cold water that makes it inside the wetsuit when you’re duck diving or you take a wipeout.  

The two-layer E5 Flashdry lining wicks and funnels water out of the wetsuit while keeping you warm in the water. Along with a front and back mesh panelling, the lining helps the sun to warm the suit up while you’re sitting on your board waiting for waves, and helps the suit quickly dry out when you’ve taken it off and left it hanging.
