Front Zip Surf Steamer
The Shark Stop Surf wetsuit has a chest zip which reduces flushing. This also keeps a barrier of fabric between the zip and your skin, lowering friction to keep you riding waves from sunrise to sunset. This shark bite-resistant wetsuit comes in men’s, women’s, and kids’ sizing, along with a variety of fabric thicknesses to choose from.
We choose to make our wetsuits with bio neoprene. This type of neoprene isn't just more durable and flexible, but it's environmentally friendly as well.

Shark Stop wetsuits are made with one of the lowest carbon footprint material of all wetsuits currently on the market. We choose to make our wetsuits with bio neoprene. This type of neoprene isn't just more durable and flexible, but it's environmentally friendly as well. Our ocean and wildlife are at the front of our mind when manufacturing a product that will spend most of its time in use in the ocean. Using bio neoprene is our way of combating the abundance of environmentally polluting petroleum neoprene wetsuits that are currently being sold around the world.
With this new type of wetsuit, we hope to make people realise that human safety is in our hands, killing sharks will not keep us safe, and the health of our oceans relies on healthy shark populations. By changing people's perceptions of the importance of sharks and how we can coexist with them, rather than dominate them, we aim to bring to light many other issues threatening our sharks. Hopefully, when people realize we can coexist they will be more willing to see the negative impact we are having on these animals and will speak up and demand change.
Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We understand sizing can be difficult. We are proud to offer exchanges for any reason.
However, we do not offer free returns. Our reasoning: data shows that free returns increases sales; however, it also indicates that more orders are being placed before careful assessment of size guidelines. This increases both outgoing and returned shipments - a consequence that affects our environment. The only proven way to decrease the negative impact on this environmental impact is through mindful shopping. Prevention is key - make sure you read our sizing chart carefully.
Wet suits should be fitted to ensure maximum warmth and comfort in the ocean, however they should not be uncomfortable or restrict movement. Wetting your wet suit will make it easier to get on.
We accept returns of unworn, unwashed and undamaged items within 30 day s of purchase for an exchange or store credit.
Please note, there is very little stretch in our wetsuits due to the nature of the material itself.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MEASUREMENTS
Please measure in bathers to get the most accurate measurements
Height: This measurement should be taken barefoot. The easiest way to get this measurement is for the customer to stand with their heels against a wall and look straight ahead. Make a small mark utilising a pencil or piece of tape on the wall level with the tallest part of their head then have them step away so you can take the measurement.
ARM LENGTH (Neck to Wrist): Keep arm at side relaxed and measure from the base of the neck to the edge of the shoulder then to the customer’s wrist.
Chest: Have the customer lift their arms. Place tape around the chest/bust at nipple level. Have the customer lower their arms then check that the tape is horizontal front and back before taking the measurement. Measurement is taken relaxed - not with chest expanded.
Waist: This measurement should really be called a “stomach” measurement. Measurement is taken at the largest part of the waist/stomach. The easiest way to do this is find the waist point on the customer’s back and then make sure the tape is horizontal as you measure around the stomach to the front.
Hips: Have the customer stand at 90 degrees to you when taking this measurement. Look for the widest part of the seat (bum) and measure ensuring that the tape is horizontal.
Thigh: This measurement of the upper thigh is taken at crotch level. Ensure that the tape is horizontal and is not over lower buttocks.
LEG LENGTH (Crotch to Ankle): Place a ruler between legs right at crotch level. Have the customer stand up straight with feet shoulder width apart, looking straight ahead. Take measurement from top edge of the ruler as close to the body as possible, down the inside of the leg to the inside ankle knuckle.
