New 2024 Protection & Neoprene Accessories 

These essentials are weapons against the elements. They are designed to make you ride longer & in more comfort whether it’s to fight the cold, the wind or the UV rays.

You can ride without but you’ll always feel better with them!

Magma Plus Technology

Our MAGMA material is one of the warmest on the market.  Besides, it is highly stretchable, which brings an unmatched  freedom of movement to the suits.

Its plush loops work as effective insulators and heat generators  while providing a smooth and soft feeling that makes the suit  incredibly comfortable. It also dries extremely fast.


MAGMA gloves are preformed for a better grip in the hand and to avoid forearms fatigue. Outside glide-skin is waterproof and windproof to fight wind-chill effect, while the inside is lined with our MAGMA fleece for an unbeatable warmth and fast drying.

The glove has a “donut” cuff to avoid water flushing. We have implemented a V reinforcement in the cuff so you can pull to put it on without damaging it.


Most of us delay the “boots time” as much as possible: We feel like we lose the board feeling, we’re less precise, our feet slide inside… Many reasons that pushed us to design our own range.

We offer boots for those who don’t like boots: They keep you warm and comfy, but they are made to be forgotten once in the water while still offering great foot support.


XTEND hood is built in the same material as our XTEND wetsuits: It is made to be forgotten while keeping you warm. Its flexibility and lightness allow a very good mobility, this is the perfect accessory if you don’t like bulky hoods.

The XTEND inside layer is the most flexible material you can find on a suit, it makes you feel stretch and light, with a good feeling on the skin.


Protecting your head is key to a good session, but also in the long term to prevent “surfer’s ear”. Hoods are often not the most adapted tools for wind sports, as they can be kind of restrictive when you are always looking right or left.

The Seafarer Cap is a light and comfortable thermal protection that will save you from brain freeze on these chilly days.


We always refused to make bulky, hard helmets because they are very uncomfortable to wear in the wind and horrible to surf with. They could even be dangerous as they make the impact in the water even harder for your neck.

 The S-FOAM helmet uses an innovative material that allowed us to create a soft, fitted helmet that is very comfortable to ride with.

Central Coast Boardriders Takes the Win at Home Break

MANERA is a proud sponsor of the Central Coast BoardRiders Club. We are always here to support the local surf communities, and are grateful to get the opportunity to be apart of this growing boardriders movement! 

We headed up to Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo to watch the annual US BoardRiders Morro Bay at The Rock comp go down. It was a great day full of high level surf from clubs all over CA, as well as good energy from the local surf community. We were stoked to see the Central Coast BoardRiders Club take the win at their home break, Morro Rock.

We got with one of the main coaches Steve Denham after the club took the win:

“Great comp, waves, and competition with our fellow Northern region clubs @santacruzboardridersclub @venturaboardriders @sbcountyboardriders @smcboardriders ! The MVP went to our women’s squad that crushed it and got the momentum going, setting the 50’s up to dominate and put us in the lead.”

“A solid 8+ double whammy by @braden.joness in the final 20’s division iced the win. Stoked on the whole team and club. Special thanks to our sponsors @maneraamerica, @woolyspb, @dornsbreakers, @cayucoscollective, @besteverpads, @805beer. The future is local, see you in Santa Cruz.”

At MANERA, we are a family. It is not some overused marketing cliché, but rather a fact of life.

Whether it’s out on the water or in this business, we don’t forget our family and friends.
In the early days of MANERA, a small network of shops and salespeople in the community helped us grow to where we are today. They have our loyalty, and vice versa.

To protect and maintain this friendly ecosystem, we have stayed true to the local shop model for our sales approach. This includes both shopping, and supporting LOCAL.

Another huge congratulations to Central Coast Boardriders. Keep making MANERA proud!

Shop the suits to keep you warm all year long.

The MAGMA is made for cold and windy winter days. Its MAGMA+ fleece acts both as an insulator and heat generator, and dries 30% faster than a classic fleece.

It is your weapon of choice against winter.

CLEANLINE Review’s Manera Women’s Magma Meteor Wetsuit

Source: Cleanline Surf

The Manera Women’s Magma Wetsuit is an elite offering designed for women who demand the best in warmth and performance. With cutting-edge materials and construction, the Magma ensures durability and longevity without compromising flexibility. Manera, a family-owned business based in France, is long known for producing top-quality surf gear for men and women.

We got our hands on the Women’s 5/4/3 Magma and took it through the ropes for thorough testing, scrutinizing everything from the fit of the hood to the 3D design. Read on for our complete review of the Magma suit: we’ll break down why this high-end suit is worth every penny.

“…the Manera Magma is at the cutting edge of wetsuit technology, using innovative features to provide the warmest, most durable suit on the market. Between the fuzzy, quick-drying fleece, the flexible air neoprene, and the minimized environmental impact, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t get a Magma sooner.”

Manera Magma Meteor Wetsuit

Neoprene and Liners

Manera created the Triplex Magma neoprene to maximize warmth and flexibility because everyone knows three is a party. First, the outermost material is called re-flex skin, which is designed for protection from the elements. The high-tech, flexible, and warm air-foam neoprene is squeezed perfectly in the middle of this rubber sandwich. 

And last but not least, one of my favorite parts of the suit is the Magma+ liner. The cream-striped fleece liner is made from thermal materials and has a reduced low density. This equates to a lightweight feel and faster drying time overall. It’s incredibly cozy and warm; it feels like a blanket hugging your body, and who doesn’t need more of that?

The Magma suit’s neoprene is derived from limestone rather than petrochemicals. Meaning less impact on the local environment and reduced dependence on oil and byproduct chemicals. Also, Manera maximizes their resources by recycling and reusing neoprene waste materials into their finished product. 

Seams and Stitching 

As one would expect with a high-end suit, the seams and stitching are created using some pretty high-tech product designs. The neoprene panels are glued together and blind-stitched (GBS), meaning the needle doesn’t fully puncture the neoprene. 

Next, the SD2 tape is welded to the seams using an air heater machine. This unique process provides more water-tight seams, durability, and flexibility compared to other competitors. Part of what makes Manera’s suits so durable is the quality seam work since that is typically the first area to fail on a well-used suit. 

Fit and Cut

Manera’s sizing for women is slightly different from other brands. Instead of using the standard numerical sizing, they use XS-XL sizing. At 5’10 and 135 lbs, I’m a size medium. According to the unique size chart, I’m at the bottom of the weight range but on the higher end of the height range for the medium. Because Manera’s size chart isn’t like standard US size charts, don’t hesitate to reach out to the Cleanline team with any sizing questions.

When putting on the suit for the first time, it was incredibly tight. However, with time and use, it gets easier and fits my body better. With that said, keep in mind the Magma tends to run a smidge on the smaller side. 

What’s unique about Manera is the design process that goes into each wetsuit model. Manera has against the grain in wetsuit design: using computer design create fitted suits in 3D. Once dialed in to perfection, the design is transformed into a 2D pattern for the factory crew to work with. 

Entry and Zipper

As mentioned earlier, the process of putting on and taking off the Magma wetsuit requires some extra effort, maybe partially due to my height? Although, compared to other hooded suits I’ve worn, the entry on the Magma feels smaller and tighter. However, once I’m fully zipped into the snug embrace of the Magma, I feel invincible. The wetsuit fits so well that I know my body will tire long before I even consider the possibility of getting cold.

The attached zipper is a major perk, as you don’t have to feed it through each time. It also feels very durable, like the rest of the suit. 


According to Manera, the 5/4 Magma is rated at 85% flexibility, 100% warmth, and 100% comfort. I completely agree with their rating. While comparing it to other brands, the Manera flexibility falls more in the middle of the road while the warmth factor is unmatched. I recommend the Magma to ladies who don’t care too much about the price tag but are seeking the warmest, most durable suit on the market.

Every area of potential water entry is sealed tight, even during duck dives and wipeouts. After a severe thrashing, if any water has seeped in, the strategically placed drainage holes prevent any sort of ballooning effect. The Manera water strainer panel uses leaky and perforated neoprene, creating a drainage system on your legs to keep your whole body happy. 

The wrist and ankle cuffs are well-designed to keep flushing minimized, and it even comes with an additional ankle strap for the ladies with no cankles (I can’t relate). While the hood takes quite some effort to put on and take off, it does a darn good job of allowing little to no water in, which leads to a warmer, more enjoyable time in the water.

Venturing into the chilly waters between 43-52 °F demands serious gear, making the 5/4 Magma wetsuit your reliable ally. For slightly milder temperatures ranging from 52-58 °F, the 4/3 is your go-to choice. If you’re one of those rare souls radiating warmth, you can even dare to go down to the 4/3 Magma because the suit runs incredibly warm.

Value and Durability

Manera says it best on their website, “the best way to be eco-friendly is to create durable products.” Although the price tag of $539.95 for the Women’s Magma 5/4/3 Hooded suit may seem a little high, prepare to enter into a long-term relationship. The overall quality and thoughtfulness put into this suit are apparent from the get-go, and you won’t have to be searching for a new suit by next season like you do with some of the competitor brands. Lastly, Manera offers a generous two-year warranty on their wetsuits. 

Honestly, the blog isn’t long enough to write about all of the fantastic eco-friendly features that Manera incorporates. From biodegradable packaging to solar-powered facilities, Manera is committed to sustainable practices.

Surfline X Pete Devries Talks Shoulder Season Wetsuits

Source: Surfline

Manera x Surfline Shop have teamed up to deliver an epic beanie with every Manera order purchased on the Surfline Shop. If that doesn’t persuade you, read below.

When you’re surfing in bone-chilling waters such as Canada or Alaska, your gear is fundamental to your success. A wetsuit that floods, booties that shift, or hoods that are too tight or loose, can skew a surfer’s day entirely.  

Pete Devries is a professional Canadian cold-water shredder who perceives hoods as essential as his surfboards and considers his 4/3 a summer wetsuit. Before heading out for another adventure in the middle of the Bering Sea (with a fresh 6 mil ready to go), Pete told us what’s in his wetsuits quiver. Spoiler: it’s all Manera. 

To understand Pete’s commitment to Manera, you need some context. In 2020, Pete’s 20-year partnership with Hurley had come to an end. While some brands sat in shock, others seized the opportunity to show this Canadian how good a wetsuit can truly be. 

“Manera was the first company that reached out,” he says. “I started looking at their stuff, they sent me a few samples, and I was blown away by the quality. Surfing with Team Manera is really great. It’s been fun working on different video projects with them, which is something I didn’t really get to do in the past with fairly with such a big international team.” 

Before Manera, Pete would go through more than six wetsuits per year and a pair of booties every three weeks. Some wetsuits would start as flexible and be blown out from the seams after a few sessions, and others the quality just wasn’t up to par. A helpful reminder that finding a wetsuit brand that fits your needs is a challenge for everyone, even the pros.  

So according to Pete, what is so great about Manera wetsuits? “The quality, the durability, and the flexibility.”

With Manera, Pete gets three wetsuits at the start of fall to gear up for his cold-water winter surfing. For Pete, it’s the kneepads that always go first, so he makes sure his quiver is stocked. Though these suits will last him around two or three seasons, he only uses the latest and greatest for his coldest surfs. The previous seasons suits are rotated in during summer or shoulder season.  

Before the dead of winter happens and the 6 mil is broken out, Pete took us through his favorite Manera wetsuits and accessories for shoulder season.

Men’s X10D Meteor 4/3 Chest Zip Fullsuit Wetsuit

My go-to summer and shoulder season wetsuit when the water temp is around 51º or above. The 10XD is an essential wetsuit for the daily hardcore surfer who wants a high-performance suit that’s flexible and has good maneuverability. “I’m a guy who always wears a hood, so having one that is lighter when it’s not too cold is perfect. The 10XD provides top notch flexibility without the compromise of durability and longevity.” 

Men’s Alt 5/4/3 Chest Zip Fullsuit Wetsuit

“This one is currently in my quiver. The Alt has a bit more weight and thicknesses being a 5 mil. On the flexibility scale, this one is a bit stiffer, but it’s an all-around suit that I’ll use in the winter. The Alt is an environmentally friendly wetsuit made with alternative materials, so the neoprene has a different feel to the exterior, but the interior feels the same. For anyone who is more conscious of the environment or gets up for dawn patrol before work on the coldest days of winter, the Alt is for you.” 

Magma 2mm Wetsuit Hood

I personally don’t use this one, I find it too warm. Say if you’re wearing the Alt 5/4/3 Hoodless, or any hoodless suit, you can throw this on for the extra warmth. This hood is full on meant for the coldest conditions, which means it doesn’t have much maneuverability in it.” 


“I wear this one because it’s a lot lighter and brings me a lot more flexibility for my neck. The 10XD Hood is made with the same materials as the 10XD Wetsuit. The detached hood alleviates the compression I feel on my neck with hooded wetsuits. I’ve found that these hoods can help me sustain a longer surf session without being as stiff and sore after. Especially when I want to rip an air where your body is rotating or power through a turn where your head is torquing, this hood brings that extra rotation without the pullback from a hooded suit.”  

Magma 7mm Round Toe Wetsuit Booties

“Boots are an interesting one for me. In recent years, I’ve found that the boots have been too flexible, and the neoprene gets too soft and gummy. I was blowing out a boot within one to three weeks. The Manera Round Toe Booties have a good mixture of feeling good while having solid soles that make them actually last. I’m very impressed with how these booties perform.   

 “I probably go through two pairs of Manera 7mil Booties in the winter as opposed to a pair of boots every month. I prefer very tight-fitting boots. I was worried about the fit because these boots don’t have a specific strap to tighten. So, if you’re looking for that tight fit, size down. I’m a size 10 shoe, but I wear a size 8 in boots.  

“When trying them on, they will definitely feel tight. It takes some technique to finesse your foot in there. On your first surf with them, you’ll feel pressure on the top of your foot. But just know, after a couple of days, they will loosen up just enough. If you’re struggling to get the boots on, I put some warm water in them to soften the neoprene.” 

Stay Toasty: New 7mm Magma Booties

The Magma boots are made for cold and windy winter days.
Their Magma+ fleece acts both as an insulator and heat generator, and its fast-drying time prevents bad smells.

There is no toe separation. This brings better comfort and more warmth as the toes are all together. The sealing print around the shin brings a better grip between the wetsuit and the boot, and prevents the wetsuit’s leg from rolling up.

Foot support is essential to get a comfortable and performing neoprene boot. Our boots feature “SIDEWALLS” on each side of the foot to maintain it. We also use a stiffer neoprene around the front of the foot in order to hold the boot structure.

Last but not least, Manera soles are super thin in order to keep a direct and precise contact between the foot and the board. The micro-spikes on the sole provide a perfect grip on wax or on a pad.
