Rip Curl E-Bomb Wetsuits Explained

Rip Curl E-bomb

Rip Curl E-Bomb

“I hate wearing wetsuits!” I hear it almost every time I paddle out. “I can’t wait for summer so we can trunk it, I feel like I can’t even move in this suit,” that sentence rings in my ears for almost the entire winter season.  After doing some research, I found a couple ways to release the death grip your old winter wetsuit has been restricting your body with.

Rip Curl E-BombLooking for a new wetsuit can be as long and rigorous as a day of “the perfect jean” shopping with your girlfriend, sister, or mother. Naturally there are always some questions about the right suit to select when picking the perfect piece to complete your shred sesh, which is really only made of three things: wave, E-Bomb, board. Boom!

Sleek, smooth, thorough, with adjectives like these the Rip Curl E-Bomb could be considered the James Bond of wetsuits.  And even though it may seem like it’s scientific make up is too complicated for the average surfer, the E-bomb is perfect for any level of surfing.  Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or even a Pro, this clean looking classic is well worth the wear and purchase.

Let’s start with the name: E-Bomb.  Sounds dangerous, right? Wrong. However, amount of flex in this wetsuit alone is practically lethal. Now one of the most flexible high-performance suits on the market today, the Rip Curl E-Bomb has 30% more stretch than the normal E3.  So what does this 100% E3 third generation Elastomax Neoprene mean? It means sweet stretchy freedom for your upper back and under arms, especially with the 4-way back stretch design.  Everyone knows when you can flex better, you move better, and when you move better your session is better.

The E-Bomb was made with minimal seam restriction in mind. As if that’s not enough variety in a wetsuit, Rip Curl has made three variations of the E-Bomb Full suit to fit your liking.  The E-Bomb Chest Zip that comes in both 3/2 and 4/2, the Back Zip in both 3/2/ and 4/2/, and the Pro-Zip in the 3/2 version of the instant Rip Curl classic.  The Back Zip is perfect for the more decided surfer.  Some people know what they want, like what they surf in and enjoy the classic back zip.  The Chest Zip provides great insulation with the classic comfort of the back zip with a modern twist on the typical zipper location protocol.  The same can be said for the Pro Chest Zip that boasts a stash pocket, flex knees, and seamless underarms. So now that we’ve broken down the science of the Rip Curl E-Bomb, the only real question is when are you going to stop wasting time and start paddling back out? Pick up one of these flex machines at any South Coast Surf Shops or online at southcoast.com and get back in the water.
