The needessentials wetsuit size recommendations below are determined by height and weight. Please note this is just a size guide, each individual surfer has a subjective wetsuit fit preference. (*We suggest opting for a size up if you’re in the higher size brackets of the scale and you're unfamiliar with how our wetsuits fit.) 

If you require any more information or advice on sizing please call 03 4241 2314 or email us.
