Our wetsuits made in the UK

posted on Tuesday, 7th September 2010 | find under 

I haven't told you about my trip to see our wetsuit supplier, snugg, in newquay yet have I? Well it is an awesome set up right by Fistral beach so they can check for wave action all the time! They do bespoke wetsuits as well as off the peg for triathletes, surfers and open water swimmers. I was wanting mine for future triathlons (?!) so the owner (and pattern cutter) measured me up. He had just come back from a Parisian race course where he had been measuring up a sultan's daughter for her Jet ski wetsuit,  and then me! Catering for all sorts. 

Anyway he explained exactly what sort of thickness and stretchability you needed in which areas for maximum efficiency and speed. Then we incorporated the technical spec into beautiful panelling detail. This is for next summer's tri wetsuit. Watch this space...
