A new entrant to the wetsuit test, the Cheer made a strong impression with its well-cut fit. “An ideal fit, I’m medium tall and the length of it was perfect” Blake. For both Monty and Blake, the flexibility of the Cheer seemed to adapt over time. “I definitely knew I was wearing a wetsuit but as the surf progressed, the flexibility did adjust to my body shape” Blake.
Ease of entry and exit
The Cheer offered an effortless entry from the waist down, however a little more effort was needed up top. “I had some minor issues around the entry point. It slid on well up until the waist, but getting the arms in was a bit of a process with a tight neck hole. Getting out was easy, which is another testament that it does give a little as you wear it” Blake.
A product of Southern Australian waters, the Cheer certainly didn’t disappoint in the warmth category. “A really warm suit, they have definitely aimed to produce a suit that is thicker, warmer and more durable” Monty. “It just seemed to withstand water at all times, a real winner in the warmth department” Blake.
With a tight fit around the legs and ankles, the Cheer acted as a barrier from water entry. “The water was pretty chilly the day I surfed in the Cheer and I didn’t feel a drop. The exterior material seemed to repel the water. Even after I had been surfing in it for a while, the water was still beading off the suit” Monty.
