Seventhwave: Did You Know? 3. How a Max is made

Ever wanted to know how our custom wetsuits are made? Get an insight into the Seventhwave production process — from the first cut to the final dome.

The featured wetsuit is our MAX Titanium Glued & Blindstitched ZB Steamer, made exclusively from Japanese Yamamoto neoprene on site in Christchurch, New Zealand.


Seventhwave Wetsuits are made in New Zealand from Yamamoto Limestone neoprene. Seventhwave Wetsuits are different because we make each wetsuit Custom-Fit, to the customers measurements. We like to get your measurements and details and then custom make your preferred wetsuit model and thickness to your exact size and shape. We think that's why we get such good feedback from our customers, many of whom come back again and again. To own a Seventhwave wetsuit is to support New Zealand made, to stand up for quality and to experience water sports in a warmer way.
