My brother is looking to get a wetsuit for his 8 year old daughter. At that age is there much difference between branded wetsuits e.g. ripcurl, o neills and the cheaper options that they sell in lidl and aldi? They're moving to Sydney for a few years soon so she would use it often during their winter season down there i'd imagine.
From having skimped myself in the past I found its definitely better to pay for a premium brand upfront - is this necessary for kids?
Also if anyone has a suit for sale in the Cork area let me know.
