Standard, Large, Small
WATERSPORT THERMAL FLEECE TYPE LINING FOR EXTRA WARMTH AND COMFORT.
3mm heat retaining neoprene (really warm) winter surf hood/balaclava.
As worn by our sponsored rider, Rich Smith, 2012 UK open champ and former WORLD Knee board surf champion.
With glued and blind stitched seams, this hood is a ‘pull over hood’ for those that surf big waves and want a really snug fitting hood that won’t come off. There is no Velcro strapping to come open on this hood.
Most your body heat is lost via your head – not anymore with one of these hoods.
These wetsuit hoods are made for cool waters (like the ours here in the UK), using the high grade stretch neoprene.
These hoods have been well tried and tested in Cornish waters over last 2 winter and spring seasons.
THEY KEEP YOU REALLY WARM !!
Sizes : these come in three sizes, standard fits 95% of people, measure around the head at the forehead, this would be around 57cm (22.5 inches) give or take a little for most people. Large would tend to be for people with a lot of thick hair or a head of over 59cm (23 inches plus). Finally small would tend to fit children or those with a head measurement of less than 55cm (under 21 inches). MOST PEOPLE WILL FIT STANDARD – see diagram on this page for how to measure.
Feedback: “Perfect fit and best quality hood I have found yet. Keeps me nice and warm!! (Eddy in Ireland).
