Water sports apparel is designed to keep the wearer warm while he or she participates in underwater and surface water sports and recreational activities -- such as diving, snorkelling, sailing and surfing. These activities require apparel with one or more of several high performance properties, including thermal insulation, waterproofness and breathability. In general, manufacturers of water sports apparel have suffered in recent years as a result of the global economic crisis, declining participation rates in many water sports and changing consumer tastes. Many manufacturers have reacted positively by introducing product innovations such as inflatable wetsuits, boardshorts incorporating compression technology and garments made from environmentally friendly materials, in order to increase sales.
