larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify

Featuring one of the stretchiest rubbers on earth — 94% nitrogen-infused Yamamoto Limestone MR7000 —  the MAX Titanium lined Steamer is the ultimate maestro for any condition winter has to offer. Neck entry for added performance, Kevlar knee pads for the best protection, stretch overloaded for insane movement, ergonomically designed to give the best comfort and performance — this maniac of a wetsuit is designed to ensure you stay warm with as little bulk as possible (and it dries insanely fast!!)
  • Custom-Fit: approximately 1/3 people don't fit a standard size, yet a correctly fitted wetsuit insulates and protects the wearer from cold water, wind and abrasion.
  • Customized colours & models: design your MAX with a variety of colours and tailor it to your specific watersport.
"It’s definitely much warmer than my previous 3/2 wetsuit and it feels as warm as my 'old' 5/3 wetsuit.... I have no doubt that this is the most comfortable wetsuit I have ever used." [more]

"My MAX is awesome. My mate had the new Rip Curl HBOMB and my MAX was on par with his, except I didn't have to charge batteries after every surf!" [more]
Brenton Fisher

"The MAX has met all my expectations of warmth, comfort, and durability. Out of all the top-of-the-line international brands I have used, none can match those essentials of quality" [more]

Yamamoto Limestone Neoprene: Yamamoto Neoprene has a nitrogen closed cell content of 94% — 23% higher than most competing materials — and with virtually no water absorption means the weight of this rubber remains nearly identical in wet or dry conditions, giving you more warmth than thicker wetsuits without the weight. It also means it dries quicker than other suits.
  • MR 7000 Superstretch: The MAX is made in superstretch neoprene from head to toe. It is lightweight (the suit weighs a mere 1300grams), flexible (longation is 480-580% — compare that to the elongation of the human skin under the arm which is 60-70%), and has a cell memory that retains the shape of your body.
  • Fully Titanium-lined: the entire suit is lined with a super thin heat retaining film called Titanium Alloy Alpha that reflects your body heat and also keeps out the cold. Every time you move, paddle, or expel energy, your thermal heat is reflected back to you—increasing heat retention by an amazing 40%.
  • 2/2, 3/2, 3/3 or 4/3: customize your thickness depending on your water temps.
MAX made

  • Glued & Blindstiched seams are sealed by a double coating of glue, butted together and then blindstitched and fully taped.
  • Fully Heat sealed around the entire inside seams.
  • Water-tight construction ensures no leaky seams, and is perfect for freezing temperatures.
  • Curved seam construction enhances the performance of the Yamamoto neoprene so that energy can be focused on surfing and not wasted working against restriction. Less seams equals more comfort and movement, and an ergonomic fit.
  • Zip Bib (ZB) neck entry closure system made from Titanium lined superstretch rubber creates a super warm seal and prevents leakage. A neck entry gives you the best flush-free seal through any duck-dive, and no chunky zip up the back gives extreme stretch throughout the back panel.
  • Kevlar kneepads are ergonomically designed to fit the bend and shape of the knee while providing plenty of padding through our 4/3 and 3/3 Glued Suits.  3mm Strong Pad is used through our 2/2 and 3/2 Glued suits.
  • Custom-Fit: approximately 1/3 people don't fit a standard size, yet a correctly fitted wetsuit insulates and protects the wearer from cold water, wind and abrasion.
  • Customized colours & models: design your MAX with a variety of colours and tailor it to your specific watersport.

My new wetsuit is everything you said it would be so you can't have it back!
Brad Dennison says ...
"Thought it was about time I did a testimonial for you guys. I have had my Max 3/3 for over a year now, it still fits like it was the day I got it. I surfed right through winter here in Otago last year in 10 degree water temp too and I was toasty as! My mates have had these suits for years. My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner!! I will NEVER wear another brand wetsuit."
Pete says ...
I bought a max 3/2 in 2005 and its still going. It was my first Seventhwave wetsuit and I cant believe it. Still so snug and flexible. There are a few holes but not on seams. I wanna buy a new one soon but to be honest I would probably get a bit more out of it. 32 yrs of surfing. without doubt the best suit I have ever had.
dc says ...
I bought a custom Max 3/2 - such a great all round suit for where I surf up here in Northland. Light and super comfortable, feels great on, the custom fitting makes all the difference I reckon. Surfed all through the winter and being cold never occurred to me. A bit warm though the middle of summer but always my go to suit the rest of the year.
Gerald Cailliau says ...
Seventhwave wetsuits are really the only suits worth purchasing in my opinion. I am currently on my second custom chest zip titanium suit. They are so flexible and warm. Provided you are careful getting in and out of a custom suit, you will have years of enjoyment. The hot top is also a great extra item to wear on the cold days.
