Rubberknite wetsuits with attached full face hood, sheath and socks were once a thing. Tight smoothskin all over. I once wanted one so bad. They also offered many accessories including gloves separate too. But the suits are no longer available.

Indeed nice suits. They guy in the last picture certainly seem to be enjoying trying on the suits in the cubicle. Happy to help if he needs it....

It's not common to find a surf suit that's smoothskin, but this one is not only smoothskin, it has a sophisticated chest zip for a tight enclosure.

Thats a really nice looking suit. Unfortunately the link seems to default to Quiksilver UK for me rather than the QS.au link and its not on their QS.uk wetsuit catalogue.
A shame, but perhaps it will be added as the seasons change. :)

OMG! that really is nice. Thanks for the extra link.
I might have a word with QS in the UK to see if they do exist on this side of the world....you never know unless you ask.

O'Neill used to do single lined surf suits some years ago, but they were back zip only. Certainly helped keep the winter wind chill out in February & March (<10 deg C water & air temps). There are a couple of companies that still do smooth skin surf suits, but not as nice as this one (in my view..).
Nineplus do one with a thicker suit with hood attached, but not all smoth skin.

No worries! Glad I could share all that smooth goodness. It's only 2.5mm with thermal lining, so not as toasty.

I've seen Nineplus suits before, but not that one. There's so much rubber! Internal back panel, back zip and chest zip hood! Wow, 2 in 1! But yeah, I'm not a big fan of the nylon butt and knees. Only the stylist springsuit makes visual sense.

I actually liked it so much I looked into ordering it. Could only find it on Oceania-based websites. Found one with international shipping, except for the fact that Quicksilver prohibits them selling it worldwide. I don't understand that at all. If they don't want resellers to ship internationally that is fine, but at least offer it internationally yourself if you got a hundred sub-websites for every nation imaginable? :|

I did send a note to QS UK yesterday to enquire if they would become available over here in due course. I had a note back today to say my query has been pasted on to customer services in QS Europe, who will respond as soon as possible.
You never know if they get some more enquiries, a few of them may make it to this side of the world..... As you suggest though when looking at delivery arrangements and who can sell on what 'patch', the workings of the minds in the top of large companies & corporations sometimes can seem a little mysterious. :?
