THE YAMAMOTO FRONT ZIP
The world's most technical smoothskin wetsuit.
The Nineplus Retro Front Zip is our most technologically advanced wetsuit with over 4 years of research & development and countless hours of testing.
Produced in YAMAMOTO #39 this is a smooth skin wetsuit which is extremely hi-tech whilst also maintaining the iconic Nineplus styling. This wetsuit was designed for high performance with features including Aerodome Yamamoto chest panels for a lighter suit with increased buoyancy.
Best of all, it's Yamamoto
Nineplus wetsuits exclusively use Yamamoto rubber which is derived from Limestone and is over 99.7% calcium carbonate compared to petroleum based neoprene manufactured by other companies. Our neoprene is as environmentally friendly as possible. Not just in its makeup but mostly in the production technique which is the most damaging aspect of neoprene production.
The History of Nineplus

It was founded by Richard Balding when he was 19 years old although due to his surfing sponsorship commitments it was kept as a side project until 2000 aged 23, 2019 will mark the 23rd anniversary of the brand.
