Gul Vortex Wetsuit
Vortex Wetsuit By Gul
Gul Wetsuits is mostly known in the UK, but when you think about it, wetsuits that are used in the cold Atlantic that sourounds UK must be woth something. Gul Wetsuits was founded back in the sixties by a local surfer Dennis Cross. In the back of his camper at Fistral beach, Dennis made his first custom built two piece wetsuit. His first suits were made from heavy unflexible industrial rubber.
Today Gul wetsuits is one of those less known but still great wetsuit manufacturers we wrote about in our piece on how to get a cheap wetsuit.
So if you want to get ready for really cold waters and get a wetsuit that is constantly tested in cold waters then check out the newest Gul Wetsuits model – the Gul Vortex Wetsuit that comes in comfy 6/5/4 thickness.
