What We Believe In
Ridge Wetsuits specializes in premium made to measure surf wetsuits that are individually handcrafted using the best Yamamoto limestone based neoprene.
At Ridge, we thrive on a no compromise approach to material, craftsmanship and customer service. We believe in creating a long lasting, quality products, one at the time.
Your Ridge Wetsuit is made just for you by the best artisans in the business, so that you will stay warm and achieve optimal performance, session after session, for years to come.
We are conscious and committed to limit our impact on the world around us. That is why we only use Yamamoto limestone based neoprene (not polluting petroleum one). Yamamoto mines limestone locally, uses electricity from surrounding hydroelectric power stations and recycles the heat generated producing neoprene to warm local eel farms and grow orchid.
On our end, we make sure all our products are manufactured in the UK to the highest quality and ethical standard avoiding cheap labor and environmental pollution. This result in products we can be proud of and you can enjoy for years to come.
Why a Custom Wetsuit
We all come in different shapes and sizes, which means most of us don't fit a standard sized wetsuit. An ill-fitting wetsuit will lower your core body by either getting water flushing through the suit or accentuate the stress on the seams and material which will result in the loss of performance and durability.
Our custom made wetsuits are handcrafted one by one with incredibly soft Japanese neoprene and made to your measurements. It will insulate you from cold water, wind and abrasion and will guarantee the best fit, maximum warmth and prove the most durable.
No Compromise on Manufacturing
All of our wetsuits are glued & blind stitched (GBS). The neoprene panels are double glued and butted together, then blind stitched. This technique uses a curved needle and does not penetrate through to the other side of the neoprene, meaning a complete, watertight seal.
Additionally, all seams are sealed on the inside with heated tape. This allows for added comfort and reinforces the water-tightness construction. It also reinforces joins and tension points on the inside of your wetsuits. Your Ridge Wetsuit is lighter, warmer and more comfortable. It dries out quickly and will be long lasting. After a quick measurement process, your wetsuits will be delivered to your door in 2 to 3 weeks.
