Our Best Selling Wetsuit Boot Model For 2023

Our Most Popular Wetsuit Boot Model for 2023 is...

One pair of Rip Curl Flashbomb 3mm Split toe wetsuit boots

Hands down the Rip Curl Flashbomb 3mm split toe boots have been a clear favourite for our customers at Blitz Surf Shop for surfing locally this winter.  These boots are an extremely reliable option for cold-water surfers, providing enhanced warmth, comfort and performance with more features than other boots in a similar price range.  They are also available in a 5mm option for colder locations.

Flashbomb 3mm Wetsuit Boot Desirable Features

 There are a bunch of features and value aspects that have helped our customers make their decision to purchase the Rip Curl Flashbomb wetsuit boots more than any other models this season.

  • Softer rubber soles than other high spec boots which give enhanced board feel and good grip
  • The Flashbomb has only had a 10% price increase in the last two years compared with up to 50% for some other brands’ wetsuit accessories
  • Flashdry lining for faster drying, warmer feet and easier on/off
  • Compression straps at lower leg and across the top of the foot for better fit and less water entry
  • Internal neoprene barrier split toe rather than external so no chance of your leash getting stuck between your toes
  • E5 premium rubber for greater comfort and mobility
  • Glued, stitched and taped seams to prevent water leakage, keeping your feet warmer for longer


Pair these with the Rip Curl Flashbomb 2mm or Heatseeker 3mm hood and a set of Rip Curl Flashbomb 3/2mm wetsuit gloves for the whole cold water accessory set up to keep you surfing for longer this winter and many winters to come
