New for 2012 hyperflex has unveiled they’re a3 surf series. I recieved my 5/4/3 amp-3 wetsuit this week and a swell showed up with it!! Surfing in and around the Boston area in the winter can bring brutal conditions – cold water, colder air, wind etc.. so you’re winter gear is very important.
My initial take on the amp-3 wetsuit was that it was pleasing to the eye, stretchy neoprene, the thermal lining was very soft and good looking and at $290 for the 5/4/3 not too bad on the wallet considering the price of other wetsuits with similar options.
Now the actual performance of the suit. Getting into the suit wasn’t that bad considering it’s a front zip winter suit. The day i used it, it was overcast, air temperatures in the 40’s with strong gusting wind and the water temperature was about 45. actually a fairly warm January day. I surfed for about 2 hours, nice and warm in the suit, i feel that i could have surfed just as long in much colder temperatures. I felt very comfortable in the suit, not as restricted as i’ve felt in other winter suits. Even taking the suit off i didn’t need to contort as i usually do with my other suits and when i got the suit off is was pretty much dry on the inside.
Bottom line – I have no real complaints with this suit. no issues putting it on or taking it off and i was really comfortable in the suit. The build quality was very nice. This is an exceptional wetsuit especially with the $290 price tag (6/5/4 – $300). i would recomend it to anyone looking for a new winter suit, drop us a line if you’d like one of these!!
