Die hard surfers surf year round regardless of the weather, here in SoCal that is. And yes, despite our southern location it does get quite frigid at times. So what’s a surfer to do? Enter Rip Curl’s H-Bomb heated wetsuit.
Powered by two Lithium-ion, 7.4 volt batteries, the H-Bomb has a set of carbon fiber heating coils that can produce up to 3 hours of body warming heat on a single charge. Because they’re made of carbon fiber they’re flexible and won’t corrode if exposed to the water.
But like all things ultra cool (or hot in this case) there’s a significant cost to entry: $1,000.
