If you are interested in winter surfing but dont have a good wetsuit, this article was written just for you...
So for those of you who have to settle for hitting the beaches of California and Hawaii during the terribly cold winter months they have there, Rip-Curl has introduced a new wetsuit designed to keep you warm. The H-bomb (hopefully no indication of future nuclear fallout) attaches two Li-Ion batteries to your back to generate heat throughout.
The wetsuit has two different heat settings, low (120-130 degrees Fahrenheit) and high (140-150 degrees Fahrenheit). Heat is dissipated through thin layers of internal fabric to spread heat evenly over your skin, no hot spots. So while we're not sure this will start the water sports rush in Alaska, it may extend the surf season a little anyways.
