Are you looking to buy scuba gear online in South Africa?  Maybe it’s time to retire your wetsuit and perhaps replace some of your other scuba gear.  What could be a better way to buy new dive equipment than going online and browsing Scuba Scene’s underwater.co.za store.

Signs That It’s Time To Retire Your Wetsuit

Even if you’ve taken the best care of your wetsuit at some point it is going to show signs of wear and tear. Saltwater is by its very nature abrasive and combined with the effects of sunlight, will eventually erode the neoprene material from which your wetsuit is made making it less flexible. The repetitive act of putting your wetsuit on and taking it off will also cause it to stretch and take on more water over time, so negating its ability to keep you warm and protected. Or the zip finally gives in and those small tears you so diligently repaired grow to be gaping holes. All these are signs that it is high time to get online and buy a new wetsuit from the best selection of scuba gear in South Africa.

There are other factors that may influence your decision to buy a new wetsuit, for example:

  1. If you’re planning a dive adventure in conditions different from the scuba spots you usually frequent, you’re going to need a wetsuit that suits the new conditions. A 3mm wetsuit made for temperate waters of our East Coast is just not going to keep you warm enough in the icy Atlantic currents you’re going to encounter off our West Coast.
  2. And if you’ve recently gained or lost significant weight – hopefully the latter – you’re definitely going to need to get online and buy a new wetsuit from the best selection of scuba gear in South Africa.
  3. The ongoing innovations in wetsuit materials and consequently, the improved fit of the new designs, are also excellent reasons to consider replacing your wetsuit at least every three to five years.

So get online today and buy your new wetsuit from the best selection of scuba gear in South Africa.
