If you're looking for a wetsuit or surf attire, you have found the right place. Hansen's Surf Shop has an enormous selection of surf attire and beach accessories, probably the biggest range in Southern California

Wetsuits generally fall into three different types, Winter, Summer and the Shortie. The primary contrasts in the wetsuits would be the thickness of material used (neoprene) which is measured in millimetres, the stitching and the quality of Neoprene. Winter wetsuits have a combination of 5 and 4mm or 5 and 4 and 3mm Summer suits have 3 and 2mm and the Shortie tends to be 3 and 2mm 2mm and even a 2 and 1mm combination. There are a couple of types of sewing most commonly used in the manufacture of wetsuits, Flatlock that is utilised in entry level Summer suits, it's a strong flat stitch which is comfortable against the body but can allow water to pass through the seams in small amounts, not a problem in Summer! Glued and Blindstitched which is a totally waterproof stitch that's used in higher-end Summer suits and also in Winter suits. Top-end suits also have various kinds of seal and taping over these seams, causing them to be practically bomb proof - Ideal for mid Winter outings! Quality of neoprene can also be mirrored in the purchase price, a top-end suit will consist wholly of very flexible neoprene whilst an entry level suit will have a basic neoprene with maybe a few stretch panels.
