Yonda Wetsuits – wetsuits and tri suits crafted with care
We started out in 2014 with a vision to be more that just another wetsuit brand – while crafting comfortable, flexible wetsuits and tri suits is the bones of our business, our heart is the community we’re building with you, our valued customers and friends.
As a family run business based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, we’re proud of our reputation for providing a truly personal service, which allows you to achieve your personal best. With us, you will find no faceless investors who put profit over performance or cost-cuttings over quality. Every Yonda wetsuit, tri suit, speed suit, accessory and kit all kit in our range is designed and refined through our ‘all ears’ policy… . Without your thoughts, ideas and feedback, we can’t perfect our products for your ultimate satisfaction!
That’s why we travel the country visiting your lakes, clubs and training grounds in our Yondamobile… our fully branded van packed full of samples of our Yonda wetsuits and tri suits. We’re a social bunch with bundles of enthusiasm for swimming, cycling and running – and we love nothing more than to hang out with other sport lovers so we can grow and evolve alongside you.
Yonda – a family heritage in fabrics
Our Huddersfield roots and history in fabrics can be traced back around 200 years, with our founder’s father and grandfather’s extensive experience of working in local wool mills and within the textiles industry.
This amassed family knowledge of yarns and fabrics has given us a solid foundation for creating some of the most flexible, high performance ready made and custom tri suits and wetsuits on the market today. Angus’s love for sport and everything that goes into a triathlon has enabled him to combine the two greatest passions in his life.
Angus loves to swim, run marathons and ride his bike but became frustrated with poor quality fabrics or materials that chafe. Angus (Mr Yonda) decided to do some research into the panelling, neoprene and fabrics that are involved in making a high quality wetsuit. The passion has grown from there, and the feedback has completely blown team Yonda away – and you can be 100% sure that we’ll always continue to keeping going further.
