Wetsuits & Drysuits
Depending on the weather, a kite boarder may wear a wetsuit. Even in the warmest of climates and lightest of winds, a wetsuit provides ample protection from abrasions and even marine life. When kite boarding in cold water and high winds, a proper wetsuit will protect a rider from uncontrollable body heat loss. For these types of adverse conditions, we recommend a full wet suit, opting even for booties and a hood to keep every bit of heat you can hang on to. A "shortie" or spring suit is cut short in the arms and legs, providing warmth in more temperate climates.
