    Product feature
    1. Greater freedom of movement
      The Tribord 500 men's wetsuit collection has a cut and materials designed to increase freedom of movement and make paddling easier. The arms and the top of the wetsuit are made of stretchier neoprene to make paddling movements easier and limit the compression of the wetsuit.
    2. Materials
      Tribord 500 wetsuits are made of 100% neoprene to ensure optimal thermal insulation. They are lined with polyamide and with polyester on the legs for greater resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 2 mm Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles covered by two layers of textile, made from polyester or polyamide. We test and guarantee the thermal quality of our neoprene materials.
    3. How does neoprene work?
      By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a wetsuit works in two ways: The trapped water gradually warms up and the heat transfer from the body decreases; the wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a protective layer. In so-called "semi-dry" suits, the water gets in but then cannot escape.
    4. Fastening
      Our zips and fastenings are laboratory tested in order to ensure an optimal lifespan and good resistance to salt water.
    5. Sizing and fit
      A surfing wetsuit should be a tight fit to ensure the best possible thermal efficiency. The zip is at the back of the wetsuit for comfort during surf sports (lying down to paddle when surfing or bodyboarding).
    6. Anti-chafing design
      We designed this product with seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation due to the repetitive paddling movements associated with surf sports.
    7. Windproof
      We have added a windproof panel on the chest of the wetsuit ("fine mesh" component) to prevent the shivering which can occur as a result of windchill when surfing, bodyboarding, windsurfing or kitesurfing. This component improves the thermal comfort of the wetsuit.
    Product testing
    1. Composition
      Foam : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Inner fabric : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Outer fabric : 50.0% Polyamide (PA), 50.0% Polyester (PES)
    2. Storage advice
      In a ventilated area away from sources of heat.
    3. Cleaning advice
      Rinse with fresh water, do not machine wash, do not leave in direct sunlight as sunlight speeds up the ageing process of neoprene.
    4. Product restrictions
      Not recommended for use in water below 18°C
    5. Product catchline
      More stretch and more warmth! Stretchier neoprene on the upper body for greater freedom of movement. Windproof fine mesh neoprene on the chest to prevent shivering.
    6. Lab tested
      Designed and tested by our teams in Hendaye (France). Proper sizing is important in order to limit the amount of water trapped inside the wetsuit and thus provide good thermal insulation. It's normal to feel that the wetsuit is tight when trying it on, bu
