Water sports fans that live in colder climates will benefit from buying a wetsuit that lets them stay in the water longer. Here are some affordable options.


Rip Curl’s Dawn Patrol wetsuit is a consistent top seller at surf shops and it’s easy to see why. It starts around $200, comes with the latest neoprene for warmth and lightness, and has a fast-drying lining on the chest area for comfort. The thicker versions are good to go even in cold waters.


O’Neill is another classic surf brand and its Epic wetsuit is a good option for those on a budget. Lightweight, flexible neoprene and a double seal neck closure bring high-end features to an affordable suit, which starts around $170.


It’s also worth checking out the Syncro wetsuit from men’s brand Quiksilver and women’s brand Roxy. The twin companies have put a lot of effort into developing light neoprene and even lined the suit with thermal jersey for comfort. These models start around $160.


Billabong’s Furnace Absolute makes the cut here thanks to the huge variety of styles and thicknesses available at affordable prices. Choose from back zip or chest zip in 3/2mm or 5/4mm in men’s and women’s cuts to get the wetsuit that best fits your needs. Prices start at $140.

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
