    1. How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 1)
      The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing wetsuit is the water temperature. Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year. Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range: Warm water above 20°C. Temperate water between 17 and 22°C. Cold water between 12 and 17°C. Very cold water between 7 and 12°C. Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your spot.
    2. How to choose the right wetsuit (Part 2)
      The 2nd criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models. Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer (and more watertight) and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models. NB: the 900 models are easier to put on.
    3. Choose the right size
      To make the most of the features of your wetsuit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the wetsuit gets wet. If you choose a wetsuit that is too big, folds will appear, you will experience irritation and thermal insulation will be reduced (letting in water). Try it on before you buy it!
    4. Materials
      OLAIAN 900 wetsuits are made of 100% ultra-stretch neoprene, guaranteeing thermal insulation and ultra-flexibility.The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 5 and 4 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties. The flexibility of the 900 range is provided by the super-stretch properties of the foam and the textile.
    5. Neck
      The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation. According to the sensitivity of the wearer, a UV top can be worn under the wetsuit to reduce the risk of irritation. The application of grease (e.g. Vaseline) in friction areas (neck, underarms, knees) is also recommended if wearing the wetsuit for long periods.
    6. Maximum freedom of movement
      The 900 OLAIAN men's wetsuit range offers a style and material specifically chosen to facilitate paddling and fully ease movement.The entire wetsuit is made from ultra-stretch neoprene. All the seams are stretch seams.The front zip totally frees up the back during use.
    7. Zip / Removable hood
      The 900 5/4 Switch wetsuit benefits from our new removable hood. Depending on the conditions and your preferences, you can choose between a normal collar or hood built directly into the suit. This variation is permitted by the two zips used in the opening system. The front zip that fastens across the front of the chest ensures freedom of movement while providing a better watertight seal than a traditional back zip. The zip slider is made of stainless steel to withstand exposure to salt water.
    8. Magnet fastening / Pacemaker warning Key pocket
      Magnets can interfere with the proper functioning of pacemakers and implantable defibrillators. • A pacemaker could switch into test mode and cause faintness. • A defibrillator may stop working. • If you wear either of these devices, keep a sufficient distance away from magnets. NB: There is a key pocket in the front panel under the zip.
    9. Watertight assembly
      The seams are stitched and glued to ensure a watertight seal and durability. The seams are "blind-stitched", meaning the thread does not entirely pass through the neoprene, preventing water getting through.To further enhance the watertight seal and durability of the assembly of our 900 ranges, they are fully taped on the inside.The absence of threads on the inside also avoids irritation and chafing.Patches for comfort and reinforcement are strategically placed on the inside in sensitive areas.
    10. Water stoppers
      The ankles and wrists feature silicone stoppers to help stop water getting in. They also help keep the suit firmly in place when using gloves and boots.
    11. Windproof honeycombed neoprene
      Windproof panel on the chest of the wetsuit (Fine Mesh smooth neoprene) to prevent the shivering which can occur as a result of windchill when surfing, bodyboarding, windsurfing or kitesurfing. Lined with a hollow honeycombed interior that provides even more insulation from the cold, this fabric improves the thermal comfort of the suit.
    12. Quick drying
      The 900 5/4 SWITCH wetsuit features a new brushed fleece inner lamination. This enables not only a minimal weight increase in the water but also ultra-fast drying. It can therefore be used several times a day while still keeping a dry feel when put on.
    13. Stay warm for longer thanks to our thermal accessories! Each temperature range has its own outfit...
      When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories: - in warm water and temperate water (>17°C) => neoprene low booties. - in cold water (12 - 17°C): High booties (boots) and gloves. - in very cold water (7 - 12°C): High booties (boots), gloves, hood and hooded top...

    14. Multi-water sports wetsuits
      Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
    15. What is the OLAIAN brand?
      Tribord surfing products have now become OLAIAN products, the new Decathlon brand dedicated to surfing, bodyboarding and skimboarding. Gradually, the branding of all our surfing products will be replaced. Therefore, your product may display a different logo to that shown in the image of the product.

      Me ha sorprendido la comodidad de este neopreno. Bastante bien sellado, ofrece una buena relación calidad precio.
      Pegas: La capucha con olas de cierto tamaño, se me ha salido un par de veces. No permitiendo olvidarme de este pequeño detalle cada vez que venía una serie.
      Por lo demás, buena calidad para el precio que tiene en un 5/4
    • Calidad a buen precio

      He gastado multiples trajes de neopreno, tanto para buceo como pra kitesurf.Y la verdad es que este traje no tiene nada que envidiar a otros de marca mas populares. Lo estoy utilizando este invierno haciendo kitesurf,y la verdad es que estoy muy satisfecho. No entra agua, es super elastico y cómodo y lo puedes llevar puesto todo el dia. Tengo que admitir que me hace falta un poco de ayuda para meterme en la parte superior, ya que entra muy ajustado. Se seca rapido.
    • Perfecto y de buena calidad

      Lo compré para que mi chico pudiera utilizarlo en aguas frías (en el cantábrico, atlántico y mediterráneo en invierno) y está super contento. El frío ni lo nota y no le limita en absoluto los movimientos.
