Wetsuit Hoods

WINTER WETSUIT HOODS AND NEOPRENE BEANIES

Wetsuit hoods are essential during winter, especially between the cold months of December and March when the water is at its coldest here in the UK. A neoprene hood provides additional protection and insulation and should be tucked under your winter wetsuit, allowing you to make the most of your chilly winter surfs when the swell is most consistent. Not only that, but they also protect against the dreaded surfer's ear, which can wreak havoc on your hearing and balance.

Our collection of wetsuit hoods comes in a range of thicknesses, from 1.5mm to 5mm neoprene, which form a heat barrier around your head. No matter what your winter water sport is, a decent neoprene hood will make your session more enjoyable.

Choose from top wetsuit brands like Rip Curl, O'Neill, Billabong, C-Skins, and Xcel. Plus, if you want to keep your head warm in style, a neoprene surf beanie will do the trick! Our wetsuit beanies come with elastic hoops that connect to your wetsuit zip so you won’t lose it when going through white water. 

Alongside your wetsuit hood or hat, you should also get a good pair of wetsuit gloves and boots for the best results, keeping you toasty and warm.

Advice On Which Wetsuit Hood I Should Buy?

Their is nothing worse than having a cold head or getting an ice cream headache whilst in cold water. If you have a water sport in the winter months and wish to enjoy your time in the water then a wetsuit hood can be the solution to keeping you happy in the water. Hood are used by all water sports enthusiasts including surfers and kite surfers especially in the UK cold winter months. Hoods come in various types including caps that cover the main part of your head and ears and usually have a strap that comes under your chin. These give you a good amount of head movement so you don't feel to restricted. In terms of thickness a cap will often come in 2mm and 3mm neoprene and the most popular being the 3mm. A full wetsuit hood is the next option which covers the head and neck and often has a piece of material that tucks into the wetsuit. Hoods are great if you are simply after staying as warm as possible, the only down side is freedom of movement. Surfers tend to want this movement more and the full wetsuit hood can feel a little awkward in the water. Saying that they are still very popular and tends to come down to personal preference. In recent years with the popularity of SUP and people still wanting to take the sport into the winter, a simple beanie in the 2mm version has also become very popular. This just covers the head and ears with no strap under the chin. If you need any help in choosing the right hood or cap then please feel free to call us for helpful advise on what to buy.
