Rugged and tech, without burning through your bills.
Even when the weather is warm, the water's probably cold at your local break. We're not talking better-bring-an-axe-to-chop-through-the-ice cold, but chilly enough to make you think twice about staying out for six hours straight. Fight through the briskness with the Billabong Men's 302 Foil GBS CZ Wetsuit, which has a Furnace thermal lining on the chest and back to keep your core warm, and fused ankle and wrist edges that help prevent flushing, so you don't have to get warm from scratch every time you get out of the water. Maybe most importantly, the Foil has a fully-dislocating chest zip, which makes it easy to get on and off and reduces stress on the zipper.
The suit itself is made of super-flexible but rugged AX2 Airlite Superflex neoprene, and has strategically placed seams and pre-shaped panels so you can move with complete freedom when you're lining up all-time barrels or catching small local swells. Even if you do get worked, the Foil's glued and blindstitched seams will hold strong (the knees are impact-welded and seam-sealed for extra flex and durability), and the contour collar will stay comfortable even if you're getting mashed face-first into the sand.
