The E-bomb has always been aimed at the surfer who wants performance, if you want to feel as free as possible when surfing in the summer the E-Bomb Pro is a natural choice.
The use of the new, lighter and stretchier E4 neoprene throughout the wetsuit ensures full flexibility through the range of paddling movements.
Compared to some of the other wetsuits in the ultra flexible category like the O'Neill Hyperfreak and the Xcel Infiniti Comp the E-Bomb Pro packs in some features which aim to keep you warmer and give you a more durable wetsuit, rather than all-out flexibility.
The E4 tape on the seams is even stretchier than before but even Rip Curl haven't used it in the arms where you need the most stretch in the seams, this will give you a better seal on the seams and combined with the slightly thicker neoprene than the alternatives it should allow you to get into the wetsuit earlier in the season with the extra warmth.
Leaving out the polypro lining and making the front panel all one piece of unbroken neoprene will mean this wetsuit is more flexible than something like the Flash Bomb, even though they use the same stretchy E4 neoprene.
The extra panels of E4 plus neoprene break up the minimal design which you can see clearly in other wetsuits which focus on flexibility, but they do give the wetsuit a more ergonomic fit, which combined with the tape and quality neoprene make it feel great against the skin.
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org where we're happy to help.
