Why you should wear a wetsuit is a pretty easy question of course. You wear a wetsuit to stay warm in the water and avoid hypothermia in cold waters. Hypothermia is a too low body temperature (lower than 35 degrees). With a wetsuit, you can also stay in the water for a longer period. But there are many other reasons to wear a wetsuit in the water.
What are the advantages of a wetsuit?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a wetsuit? There are three main advantages of having a wetsuit. See here below:
- Keeps you warm in the water
A wetsuit’s main purpose is to keep you warm in the water. Not only when the water is cold but also if you want to stay longer in the water 30 minutes or longer.
- Protects the skin from sunburn
If you wear a full wetsuit or a steamer it protects your whole body against the sun. Except for your face, hands, and feet. You should put sunscreen on them or you wear shoes, gloves and a hat of course ;). You can also wear a shorty or other wetsuit than a full wetsuit, but of course, you need to put more sunscreen on.
- Protects the skin from damage
You can spare your skin from small scratches and cuts in and out of the water. You rather have a cut or scratch in your wetsuit than in your body. Also, the wetsuit protects you from small sealife or sea creatures such as jellyfish, bluebottles, and sea lice.
