Geared up with the best neoprene!

Whenever I come home from a trip away, it is always hard to get back into the cold and wet conditions back at home. But not anymore!

The awesome wetsuit company that is WEST, have taken me on and added me to their team as their first kiteboarder. West is a very well known wetsuit brand among the surfing industry and this is a new and exciting step and I am super happy as now I get to wear some of the best wetsuits being made today.

The powerful southern swells that push up the vast, ancient west coast of Australia create some of the best and most isolated waves in the world. In 1982 two surfers, Patrick Leahy and Roger Liley created a unique grass roots surfing company, West.

Inspired by the soul of this raw environment and the sense of escapism, West designs core surfing products that are function driven, with a feel good fashion edge.

These wetsuits are awesome, and are going to really help when I am at competitions. They are super stretchy and flexible which is important.

Thanks to Dave and Pete, and I look forward to taking my new wetsuits out to Cape Town in a few weeks.
