Whether you're planning a diving holiday in the Mediterranean or having a go at water skiing, you'll need the right kit to keep you covered and the key piece is your wetsuit. A good host or charter yacht owner should always keep a range of sizes and weights on board, but if you're planning to be in the water a lot, it's always good to have one that's right for you. Here's our pick of the best wetsuits for 2020 whether you're diving, surfing or waiter skiing...

Why do we wear wetsuits?

Divers, surfers and water sports participants will wear wetsuits to insulate and protect. Typically made of thick neoprene and lycra materials, wetsuits act as an insulator and a protective layer from anything underwater that may scratch or sting - within reason. You'll find they come in different weights and lengths to accommodate various in-water activities, so if you're planning some more outlandish water sports, you'll want something thicker.

Discover the wetsuits worth making a splash about from our top picks below.

Speedo Proton Fastskin

Even in the warmer climes of the Caribbean and Mediterranean a wetsuit is still essential to protect against cooler currents and jellyfish stings. Speedo's Proton Fastskin wetsuit at just 1.5mm is ideal for warmer waters and those who are looking for more speed and less friction. With Yamamoto 38 cell neoprene rubber, the suit offers plenty of buoyancy without restricting flexibility.
