Can you give me a 6/5/4 diving surfing wet suit explanation?

Well, we are not completely sure what kind of diving surfing wet suits explanation do you want, but since people are mostly interested in the meaning of 6/5/4 well explain that. 6/5/4 gives us the thickness of the neoprene from which the diving surfing wet suit is made (in millimeters). A 6/5/4 diving surfing wet suit is made out of 6 mm, 5 mm and 4 mm thick neoprene sheets.

Why different thickness?
Thick diving surfing wet suit is much less flexible than a thinner one so diving surfing wet suit manufacturers use thinner neoprene on places where you need more flexibility (shoulders, arms, armpits, crotch) and thicker neoprene where you need less flexibility (body, legs).

When to wear a 6/5/4 diving surfing wet suit?
There are many factors that influence the feeling of cold so if you want a full explanation check out our diving surfing wet suit thickness and water temperature guide and chart. In short? A 6/5/4 diving surfing wet suit is used in some pretty freezing waters. This is the thickest diving surfing wet suit that is still regularly used for surfing. So use it when the water temperature drops below 48F (9C) and you also have very low air temperatures and wind. Basically U would use this diving surfing wet suit if you would be surfing during snowfall! When surfing in that kind of conditions also make sure you are wearing thick diving surfing wet suit booties, thick diving surfing wet suit gloves and a thick scuba hood.
