Wetsuit Centre stocks a vast range of kids' shorty wetsuits from respected brands such as Ripcurl kids wetsuits, Rip Curl children's wetsuits & Billabong Kids Shorty Wetsuits. A shorty wetsuit will give your child maximum flexibility whilst keeping them warm. Short limbed wetsuits are perfect for the UK summer months of July and August when the water is generally warmer or for a holiday abroad. Smooth skin is used on the front and back to reduce wind penetration through the wetsuit on those sunny but windy days. They are an excellent option for a first-time wetsuit for your child, as they are often more budget friendly. This isn't because a child's shorty wetsuit is of worse quality but because they require less neoprene to create compared to a full-length kids wetsuit.
