Rip Curl Flash Bomb:  The Next Evolution in Wetsuit Technology

Too often we see a brand slap some new colors or patterns on the same old suit and throw it out there for the next model year.  Rip Curl’s F Bomb was definitely one of the best we have seen in a long time, and had they done that, I think most of us would be pretty content.

Instead, the nice folks at Rip Curl went back to the drawing board and started from the ground up.  The result was a true evolution in wetsuit technology; the Flash Bomb line of full wetsuits.
