How to be happy in the surf

Two years or so ago, I had a chance to surf a Rip Curl heated wetsuit.At the time they were developing the suit to finally get to a perfect model which nowadays they call the H Bomb. Surfing in Canada is always cold,but in the wintertime the water gets really cold and so is the temperature outside.A few months ago i got the H- bomb from my wetsuit/clothing sponsor Rip Curl.All I can say is that the suit is super flexible and warm.It is heated with 2 small lithium batteries in the back providing the warmth you need in the frigid waters of Canada.Paddling is super easy due to great flexibility from the E3 material and also from the fact you are surfing a 4/3 mm suit when everyone else is surfing a 6/5mm or 5/4mm with 5mm gloves and 7mm booties.Since I surfed last time i went from 5mm gloves to 3mm and from 7mm boots to 3mm.If your core is warm during your session your body's extremities will be super warm as well. Anyway, i just loved to be able to have this suit and recommend anyone to get one. Surfing has being really good over the past few weeks and it is looking great for in the next few days as well. See you in the water. Cheers, Chris "Careca" Moutinho
