Alternatives to the stiffness of conventional wetsuits !!
As an underwater photographer, I need to have as much mobility as possible, and have found that the combination of the vests and pants serve as freeing alternatives to the stiffness of conventional wetsuits. I like that I can mix and match different pieces together, depending on the water temperature, and that I can also layer with thicker wetsuits in much colder conditions. Having so much gear to lug around, the lightness of Sharkskin frees up a lot of space and weight, which is always a bonus for a photographer. Other underwater photographers and scuba divers are constantly asking me for wetsuit recommendations, and I always tell them to give Sharkskin a go, especially because it is like wearing pajamas underwater!
The fleece lined paddling pants are awesome over winter,
Sharkskin is by far the best paddling gear I've ever worn on the water! The fleece lined paddling pants are awesome over winter, and the foot straps mean that if I come off my board during racing or downwinders, the pants remain in place. The Rapid Dry top with high vis sleeves is a year-round paddling top for me as it is warm, quick dry and provides better insulation than lycra or cotton tops. When it gets cold in winter I just wear my Sharkskin chest vest underneath. It keeps my core warm but allows freedom of movement due to the vest design. The entire Sharkskin range feels great on, is breathable and flexible which is important to me when paddling, and a big bonus is it's flattering to wear!
