The ProMotion suits have "wind skin" to keep the suit from drying.
Surfing suits are different than one needed for kiting. We crunch our elbows, suit can dry out when riding, etc..
Different parameters for performance..
They are so tight and flexible, once on, are hard to tell you have a suit on
nothing like the older styles of thick and bulky ,like my old Hotlines, looks like a different material altogether.
Even in 50 degree water a zipper failure or a tear from a fin could be deadly,by the time you wash in ,for safety I would not chose a drysuit in large surf where you could have a hole in the suit.
I've never seen a surfer in a drysuit around the Pacific Northwest ,but we don't have that cold of winters here,like in the east coast
