Ian Battrick and Lunasurf crew test their Janga suits in great Iceland surf

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 17 January, 2013 : - - Ian Battrick and Tim Nunn have just camped out in the rental car through snow, minus temperatures and with just 5 hours daylight to score some waves around Iceland shooting the latest addition to the Lunasurf wetsuit range - a high performance 6/4mm hooded cold water wetsuit.

Lunasurf Janga Wetsuits are made by surfers for surfers - for maximum warmth, comfort and performance. The result of decades of knowledge from our ambassadors who have worked closely with us testing, refining and validating our wetsuits in some of the harshest and remote surfing conditions on the planet.

"I'm coming out of 3 hour surfs in January in Iceland still warm, with the feel of a 3/2. Without a doubt the best wetsuit I have ever worn! No longer do you need to be cold, feel slow, heavy or restricted in anyway by your wintersuit, the new 6/4 Lunasurf Janga Wetsuit will keep you warm, light and loose in even the most frigid corners of the globe!" - Ian Battrick

"I've got to check out a serious amount of wetsuits over my career shooting film and stills from the water. It's especially important as I love the colder ends of the world. The thing is when you're swimming you soon find out exactly how good a wetsuit is, unlike surfing you move the shoulder and legs a lot more, so if there is a dodgy seam or join in a suit you soon get a serious rash or very cold. So if a suit is good for swimming it is incredible for surfing in. No question, THE best cold water surfing wetsuit I have come across. - Tim Nunn
