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.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
