Does anyone know about Derevkow wetties? Seen a few in the surf. Looks like they have a massive sale on.
They seem like another needs style setup, a mate has a 3/2 and likes it but it’s only new so can’t comment on quality.

I’m pretty much only ever going to buy Cskins again. Still running a zipless 3/2 rewired that’s 18months old. In Vic in the middle of July and still comfortable after a couple of hours in the water with a hood but no booties.
Good to hear.
I bought a CSkins 3/2 about 3 years ago and agree they make good stuff.

Back zip though. 😁

Check out Sideways in Brookie. Plenty of smaller kids stuff and not overly expensive given they will grow out of it in 6 - 12 months.

ha ha I went to that shop yesterday just out of curiosity. It's a weird world, the discount vertical surf retail establishment. Kind of like Aldi.

Just saw that Dane penned a deal with Buell. Giving him complete control over a sub brand, like Air Jordan with Nike.

Mainly been in there only to ogle the Free Flight channels bottoms but ended up buying my young one a cheapie steamer to get him through the winter.

As opposed to a horizontal surf retail establishment I assume
Erase.

From memory buying a wetsuit for an 18 month old is a bad idea. They will grow out of it in a matter of weeks...not months.
