Wessex Watersports

The sport of Windsurfing required innovative developments in Dry-Suits and Dry-Gloves (the early uncovered bare aluminium booms were crippling cold to the hands).

Although the sport has passed its peak of popularity we continue to produce our most popular products as they bring comfort in cold weather to many other sports such as waterskiing, jetskiing, canoeing and dinghy sailing.
