Smooth-skin is the warmest and lightest material for surfing - period. It neither absorbs water nor allows the wind to pass through it. That means you are lighter and you dont use energy pulling water around thats trapped in your wetsuit nylon. You cut through the water like a seal and any sunshine warms the surface of the neoprene as it stays dry - all the time. Genius? Not really - its the original way of making wetsuits.
Simple, Warm & Smooth.
Produced in Yamamoto Number 39 this is a suit which is extremely modern in terms of fit, comfort and weight while retaining the retro styling of a classic smooth-skin (single lined) wetsuit. The suit features the nylon underarm panels to allow freedom of movement and less resistance but the real secret of the Nineplus wetsuit range is in the weight of the materials used. The RFS weighs in at just 1kg. The suits have a minimal water retention as the outside cannot soak in any water and the lining being a nylon will dry out in under 10 minutes when left to dry.
