The Flash Bomb excelled in the FFC department, with all surfers deeming it faultless. “It had loads of flex through the entire wetsuit, making it feel like a second skin and the fit was unreal” Monty. “Really strong in all aspects, fit was spot on and comfort wise, it was so comfortable” Blake.
Ease of entry and exit
“Went on super easy, there was plenty of stretch around the entry point which made it effortless. Getting it off was simple also” Blake. “I found the zip free worked effectively, with easy entry and exit of the Flashbomb Plus – no problems at all” Nick.
Described as a high performance wetsuit, the Flash bomb has also been manufactured to ensure superior warmth. “The E5 Flash Lining on the inside felt so warm and any water that found its way inside would just trickle straight out of the suit” Monty. “Warmth was another really strong point of the Rip Curl. The E5 Flash Lining insulation helped create extra warmth and comfort making it a really solid winter wetsuit” Blake.
The Flash Bomb Plus remained completely water resistant during long surf sessions. “I couldn’t pinpoint any water entry. The tight drawstring around the chest seals it right up and the liquid seals withstand all water. The snug fit also allowed no water to enter” Blake. “No water entry whatsoever” Monty.
