Very good for warmer weather conditions does the job in summer months.
Bought for grandson. Quality is good and overall pleased with beaus and fit.
I bought two sizes bigger, age 10 for a very skinny 8year old. Would say would be suitable for a 6 year old. It looks great but unusable due to tiny sizing.
Great value for money. Comes up small.
Endless fun in the water and their warm, very flexible I’d buy the year group above
Really good value wetsuit for the kids. Needed 3 so cost vs practicality was a big thing to consider. They're quite tight and I went back for the next size up as it left marks on my daughter, who is a bit taller than her age group. She did have it on for about 4 hours though, so that didn't help. Used in the Welsh coastal waters in April when it was quite cold, but kids were constantly in the sea, so it did a good job.
These wetsuits are an absolute bargain - brought the purple one for my daughter and she loves it, they are great quality and a good fit! Really pleased with it!
Bought for our 9 year old who measures 135 cm and couldn't get it over his shoulders. Buy bigger! Quality looks OK though.
Lovely wetsuits perfect for kids on the beach. I found the sizing was really difficult to gauge though. They are made for slim kids! My 4 year old needed a 6, 5 year old needed an 8, skinny 6year old fitted a 6 and our 9 year old needed a 12! So buy bigger!!
Good quality cloth & fitting
I ordered an age 6 for my 3 year old that wears 4-5 clothes and we could get it on her at all. I gave to my niece who has just gone into 3-4 clothes and it fits perfectly
Bought aged 14, no chance to fit my nearly 13 year old but ok on the skinny 11 year old. Overall nice wetsuit though.
Shorty wetsuits absolutely perfect as not too tricky to get in and out of. Well made and lasts well
Just as expected very pleased with this item
This worked well to keep us warm I bought an age 12 for my 7year old and it only just fitted.

The first selection criterion when choosing a surfing wetsuit is the water temperature.Water temperature varies according to the location and the time of the year.Systematically make sure that the water temperature at your spot corresponds to the recommended temperature range:Warm water above 20°C.Temperate water between 17 and 22°C.Cold water between 12 and 17°C.Very cold water between 7 and 12°C.Visit the site seatemperature.org to find out the temperature of your spot.
The 2nd criterion to take into account is the length of your sessions. If your sessions last less than an hour, the 100 models will be suitable. For up to 2 hours, opt for the 500 models and for up to 3 hours, the 900 models.Compared to the 100 models, the 500 models will be warmer (and more watertight) and more efficient at reducing fatigue (more freedom of movement) and irritation. The same is true for the 900 models compared with the 500 models.NB: the 900 models are easier to put on.
To make the most of the features of your wetsuit, it is necessary to choose the correct size. A surfing wetsuit should be a very tight fit and there should be no visible folds. When dry, it is perfectly normal to feel like it is too tight, this discomfort disappears as soon as the wetsuit gets wet. If you choose a wetsuit that is too big, folds will appear, you will experience irritation and thermal insulation will be reduced (letting in water).Try it on before you buy it!
This OLAIAN 100 shorty is made of neoprene for better thermal comfort.The neoprene is lined with polyester fabric for added resistance to wear.Neoprene thickness: 1.5 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties.
The neck finish has been developed to limit irritation. According to the sensitivity of the wearer, a UV top can be worn under the wetsuit to reduce the risk of irritation. The application of grease (e.g. Vaseline) in friction areas (neck, underarms) is also recommended if wearing the wetsuit for long periods. Make sure the flap is always inside the wetsuit to limit the risk of irritation with the zip and the neck.
Our zips and fastenings are laboratory-tested in order to ensure an optimal lifespan and good resistance to salt water.We have put the zip at the back of the wetsuit for more comfort during surf sports (when lying down to paddle).
We are required by law to put a short cord on the zips of junior products to prevent the risk of strangulation for the youngest users. From size 10 years, the cords are longer and allow handling independently.A small rip-tab prevents accidental opening of the zip during use.
We designed this product with seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation due to the repetitive paddling movements associated with surf sports.
When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head).Consequently, here are the recommended accessories:- in warm water and temperate water (>17°C) => neoprene low booties.- in cold water (12 - 17°C): High booties (boots) and gloves.- in very cold water (7 - 12°C): High booties (boots), gloves, hood and hooded top...Find our entire range of neoprene accessories at decathlon.fr
Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
TRIBORD surfing products are becoming OLAIAN, the new Decathlon brand dedicated to surfing, bodyboarding & skimboarding. Gradually, the branding of all our surfing products will be replaced. This is why your product may have a different logo to the one in the picture illustrating the product.
