What are we wearing in the water this Winter?

Kate, the King of Watersports Kitesurfing genius will be out there, in the deepest darkest winter with her new Ripcurl Flashbomb. For Kate it is important to keep riding all year round and nothing is worse than the cold for ruining a session. With a warehouse full of wetsuits, Kate hand picked the Women’s Ripcurl 5/3 Flashbomb wetsuit in Fatigue. With temperatures just starting to dip she has not had a chance to really test it to it’s limits but all reports so far is that the wetsuit is “seriously warm”.

The Ripcurl Flashbomb lining runs through the suit from your neck to your ankles. The arms are kept free of the flash bomb lining to allow for extra movement and flexibility –  not a problem for Kate, she loves the wetsuit and the movement it allows. Cold arms are the last thing on her mind as she bombs across the harbour, testing out the latest kite kit for King of Watersports. Check out this Ripcurl Flashbomb video for all the tech specs –

The colours for winter are a little like marmite –  love them or hate them –  and they have covered all bases. The Fatigue is really 50/50 Coops and Kate love it, Katy and Charlotte would rather go with the Ripcurl Flashbomb in Turquoise.

Coops is usually the King of Watersports voice of our social media and behind the blog. Stand Up Paddle Boarder, Wakeboarding, skater and a one time kitesurfer, she has a more relaxed attitude to her board riding. If she is out of the office then she is probably carving up some badass jewellery.
