An Xcel Youth Axis 5/4mm wetsuit is all it takes to start racking up epic surf sessions in cold waters. Now made of Japanese limestone Superprene, the 2019 Youth Axis proves warmer, lighter, stretchier, softer, and more durable than standard neoprene. It’s also more comfortable, and it’s not made from oil. A watertight back zip seals out water, and Plush Thermo Lite in the upper body radiates heat from within, for incredible warmth. Triple-glued and blind-stitched seams, reinforced with Fusion X tape at stress points, holds up against leaks and time. With 100% performance stretch nylon outside and in, and a surf-specific fit, the Youth Axis 5/4mm will not restrain the boundaries of radness. Dope-dye yarn, water-based glue, and other Earth-friendly features even make this wetsuit a responsible choice: what’s good for the ocean is good for you. Designed for water temps between 48-56 degrees F, and for anything from surfing to bodyboarding, river surfing, and bodysurfing. We use the entire Axis line in our rental fleet, which says a lot.
