Wetsuit technology has revolutionized surfing in cold water. Without a wetsuit you would only survive for minutes in the arctic sea, but with a high quality 5mm wetsuit you could stay in the water for hours.
It is actually a bit like snowboarding or skiing. Your face would feel a bit cold in the beginning, but as long as you stay active your body will produce the heat needed to stay comfortable.
At Unstad Arctic Surf we provide high quality wetsuits for our customers and after your surfs session you could jump in our hot tub or relax in our sauna.
