I use this suit for surfing in the Fall and Spring. I do not enjoy surfing in the coldest days of winter so this suit is perfect for me. I am a lifelong surfer and have not bought a wetsuit in about 10 years and I am amazed at how much better they have gotten. This suit is great looking and feels awesome which is most important. I have surfed for over 50 years (!!!!) so I remember using the first surfing wetsuits made exclusively for surfing but they were made ONLY for men! They were heavy, ugly and never fit me right. Eventually I got my suits custom made so they fit. But still the old suits were heavy and hard to get in and out of even when they fit perfect. So this suit is a revelation!!!! Off the rack it fits perfect, looks great, keeps me warm, and moves with my body. Like a second warm skin. I will be buying more Roxy products and for sure my wetsuits!!! So cool they make these just for women!!! We have come a long way baby.
