1, waterproof performance

The cuffs and neckline of the diving suit have a better design to prevent water ingress. And the stitching suit also has better handling, such as pressing glue.

2, thickness

Diving suits are 3mm, 5mm, 7mm, semi-dry, etc., mainly to adapt to the temperature of different regions. Surf suits are generally 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, and rarely thicker because they are inconvenient to move.

3, pressure resistance

The Neoprene material of the diving suit has a much better recovery ability under pressure than the ordinary one. Surf suits generally do not need to be under pressure.

4, design method

Diving suits have some designs that are specifically designed for diving environments. For example, some wet suits have a pocket design, and some will enhance the wear resistance of certain places, such as the elbow position, while the surf suit does not.

5, color

Diving suits generally do not use too much color. Because it will lose its original color when it is launched, it may be more ugly. The surf suits are different, and there are a lot of surf suits designed to look great.

Diving suits are diving equipment designed to prevent body temperature from escaping too quickly, resulting in loss of temperature, while also protecting the diver from reef or harmful animal plants.
