A 3mm wetsuit is perfect for summer surfing in the UK and Europe, the Xero Gold from Billabong has some great features to keep you warm and make sure the suit lasts, built with durability and warmth as the main priorities, if you like to surf often and for long sessions, this is an ideal choice.

The seams are sealed on the outside with liquid rubber material, this gives you better durability on the seams and makes sure there's less chance of water getting inside the wetsuit too.

Billabongs furnace lining is relatively thick and does a good job of locking in warmth when you're in the water and allowing the water to drain off quickly when you're waiting for the next session.

The slick skin style neoprene on the chest, back and kidney panels has been re-named this season as Solar Mesh, the idea behind it hasn't changed though and you'll see it on many other wetsuits, it allows water to run off not soak in to prevent the wind chill factor, this makes it warmer than standard nylon lined neoprene.

A few other smaller details add up to make it a comfortable wetsuit to wear, the collar drops in the middle to make it more comfortable, the cuffs have a bevelled edge rather than just being cut off and the zip opens wide and zips from the outer edge towards the start of the zip, which can be a bit fiddly to get used to but allows you to open it wider whilst putting less stress on the neoprene than a bigger zip that's attazched at the closed side of the shoulder.

Choosing the right thickness for you

This is a 3/2 wetsuit, it has 3mm panels in the torso and legs and 2mm panels in the arms, this ensures you get the warmth in the core of the body and the flexibility to paddle in the arms.

The best thickness of wetsuit for you depends mostly on where and what time of year you will be surfing, 3mm is the most popular thickness for summer wetsuits in most of the UK and Europe.

We wear our 3mm wetsuits from Spring to Autumn in the South West of the UK.

We have created a guide which goes into more depth about choosing the best thickness for you so if you've got any doubts take a look at the msw wetsuit thickness guide

Choosing the right size for you

Getting the right size wetsuit is critical, the wrong size will not keep you warm and could end up putting more stress on the seams, different brands use slightly different size charts so you may not be the same size across different makes of wetsuit, we suggest looking at the size chart page to judge which size will be the best fit for you.

If you have any questions about the differences between wetsuits, the fit or the thickness that would be best for you give us a call on 01548 854660 or an e-mail on store@magicseaweed.com where we're happy to help.

  • Rapid MSW service as ever... Suit is great fit, I'm 5'9" and 75kg so M was perfect. Definitely not as much stretch as some but I wanted a bit more warmth to take me as far into autumn as possible. Seams are all sealed really well and the lining dries fast and keeps you warm when out for a long session.. Great, comfortable suit for the money..

  • used the sizing chart on MSW to find the right size for me and what can I say, perfect fit and actually warmer than I expected. Used it now 4-5 times, very satisfied

  • Took a risk just using the size chart online but it fits really well. Chest zip is definitely worth it, really pleased so far.

  • Great wetsuit it keeps you very warm. Quite stretchy as well so it's much more comfy than back zip wetsuits.

  • Not so happy with this wetsuit, I'm used to Excel and will stick to Excel. Water is coming in wetsuit via neck (+back) when I duckdive and at the same time it's difficult to get out of wetsuit with the tight chest zip...
