If you are planning to go kite surfing in cold weather conditions, it is important to protect yourself from the cold. A neoprene thermo top is a good solution for this. These tops are made of neoprene, which is an insulating material that keeps you warm in cold conditions.
The great advantage of a neoprene thermo top is that it is a thin and flexible layer that you can easily wear under your wetsuit. This not only keeps you warm, but also maintains your freedom of movement. The thermo top retains your body heat, while warming up the water that is between your wetsuit and your skin. This provides an extra layer of insulation and keeps your body at temperature.
But what is the difference between a thermo top and a thermo sweater? A thermo sweater is a slightly thicker version of the thermo top and is worn over the wetsuit instead of underneath it. The big advantage of this is that you can easily put on and take off the thermo sweater without having to take off your entire wetsuit. In addition, a thermo sweater often has a hole on the chest, through which you can pull the trapeze hook. This keeps the sweater in place and allows you to kite surf without any interruptions.
In short, whether you choose a neoprene thermo top or a thermo sweater, the most important thing is to protect yourself well from the cold. This way you can fully enjoy kite surfing, even when the temperatures drop.
