Value of Donning A Wetsuit in Certain Circumstances

The temperature of the water begins to fall in tandem with the temperature of the air around it. It is time to start giving some real thought to how you can protect yourself when you are out on the water now that cooler weather is rolling in across the majority of the United States. To put it another way, it is now the appropriate time to retrieve your wetsuit from its storage location and put it on once you are in the water.

However, a wetsuit can provide you with a number of benefits in addition to helping to protect you from the cooler temperatures of the water, including the following:


A buoyant effect is intended to be provided by a swimsuit. If you have a high level of buoyancy, it will be much simpler for your body to remain afloat in the water. Because of this, your body will need to exert less effort with each stroke, which will enable you to swim both faster and for a longer period of time than you would be able to do without a wetsuit.


Not only does the buoyancy of wetsuits contribute to increased speed, but so does the coating on them. Wetsuits have SCS (Super Composite Skin) coatings on them, which are designed to repel water and allow the wearer to move more quickly than other swimmers.


Wetsuits, as was mentioned at the beginning of this discussion, are an excellent way to stay warm in the water throughout the fall and winter months, when temperatures tend to be lower. It creates a barrier between your body and the water, which shields you from its chillier effects and acts as an additional layer of protection.

During the fall and winter months, customers of Jet Ski Madness can take advantage of our complimentary wetsuit rental service. If the temperature is higher than 21 degrees Celsius (or 70 degrees Fahrenheit), we do not advise wearing a wetsuit.
