For 50 years Gul has been at the forefront of technical wetsuit development. Since 1967, the philosophy has been simple-to-make the best product possible. It was in the early sixties that Dennis Cross, a man with a passion for surfing, decided that enough was enough. Although he loved surfing, the waters of the Atlantic were too cold, especially in winter! He, therefore, set about designing the first purpose built wetsuit for surfers. Dennis began designing and making the first wetsuit rumoured to have been made in the back of his split screen camper at Fistral Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. From this humble beginning, the Gul brand was born. By the early 70’s, Gul had created the ground breaking one-piece wetsuit. They went on to sponsor the UK’s first pro surf comp, the UK’s first surfing pros (Steve Daniel and Nigel Semmens), and help put Russell Winter on the tour as well as supporting UK surfers like Egor (pictured), Ben Howey (5th in the world!), Jack Unsworth, Beth Leighfield, Tina Beresford and many many more…

GUL’s Viper wetsuit is packed full of the latest GUL innovations such as the LAVA: Pre-stretched Infinity fluid stretch neoprene for maximum freedom, FX:LITE: silky smooth, hydrophobic ( i.e. doesn’t hold H2O ) material for full-body defense in the harshest of winds and BOLTDRYX lining from chest to knee for ultimate warmth. LAVA FLOW taped construction for a tough waterproof seam with no compromise to stretch and no need for a liquidseal that often ends up cracking for maximum seam durability. The Viper a serious suit from the cold water specialist, leaders in innovation for over 50 years. It also retails at just £225!

We have one to give away together with Viper 5mm Split Toe Boots, Viper Peaked 3MM Surf Hood and a 50L Heavy Duty Drybag. The prize is worth more than £320 and will keep you toasty all through winter.
