How do kids wetsuits work?

It doesn't matter if your child or toddler wants to go swimming, surfing or body boarding in the water - they will have a more enjoyable time if they are warm!

Kid's or childrens wetsuits are made from Neoprene. The flexible neoprene rubber traps a thin layer of water between the skin and the wetsuit, using body heat to warm the water, hence keeping the suit and the child warm. Junior wetsuits provide extra warmth in cold water and, in the summer, protect them from harmful UV rays.

How should a kids wetsuit fit?

Do wetsuits keep children warm?

Yes a wetsuit will help keep your child warm. The wetsuit must have a snug fit reasonably tight on your child for a thin film of water trapped between the rubber and the skin to be able to warm up. The dilemma is that most parents want to save up to future-proof the wetsuit, as they know their child will grow out of it quickly. The trouble is the wetsuit needs to fit snugly for the child to enjoy the warmth of the wetsuit. We always recommend buying the same price, right size kids wetsuit.

What are kids shorty wetsuits?

Shorty wetsuit for warmer days

A kids shorty wetsuit is designed to cover the torso, arms or upper body. A shorty style wetsuit will have short legs and short sleeves and are ideal when the water temperature exceeds 20 degrees.

Another benefit of shorty kids wetsuits is that they protect against the sun. Most children don't like wearing tight clothes, and shorty wetsuits are a good compromise as they are easier to get on and off and warmer than not wearing a wetsuit at the beach.

Why choose a full kids wetsuit?

3mm full wetsuits are a little warmer than a shorty and are perfect for watersports in the United Kingdom in late spring. This style is the most common choice for sports like kayaking, paddle boarding or surfing.

How do I choose a wetsuit for my child?

You will choose your child's wetsuit depending on the water temperature range they will be wearing the suit in, be it a shortie for the middle months of the summer in the Uk, or a full 3mm wet suit for late spring to autumn, or a winter 4-5mm suit for the winter.

How thick should a wetsuit be for kids?

If your child wants to be in the water to enjoy their water sports through colder months, buy wetsuits designed specifically for winter. These suits are usually 4-5mm thick and will have seams that don't let the cold water in.

Full junior wetsuits provide good insulation and keep the core of the body warm. Children love to spend a lot of time in the water and are more susceptible to hypothermia, so a full-length wetsuit is ideal for colder water.

If your child is a little accident-prone in the sea, a full wetsuit will give them some protection and make it easier for them whilst swimming, as the neoprene rubber has a small amount of buoyancy.

Children's rash vests are great to go under kids wetsuits as they are super soft and can also be worn on their own in the summer.

Can kids wear wetsuits in the swimming pool?

Yes, wetsuits are perfect if your children are finding a swimming pool water temperature cold. The suit will give extra buoyancy to aid swimming and added warmth, and suddenly, an outdoor pool becomes a year round play area. It is very important that the suit is thoroughly washed out in freshwater, as chlorine is very harmful if left on kid's wetuits UK.
