Sonar Watersports



About us

Established in 1988, Sonar Wetsuits of Australia quickly grew to become Australia's leading scuba diving wetsuit manufacturer. It built the world's best and most durable wetsuits for recreational, technical, commercial, military, rescue and charter divers, plus watersports enthusiasts.

Sonar Wetsuits of Australia
Sonar manufactured westuits for all seasons and conditions. Whether you were a professional or recreational diver, Sonar had a wetsuit that would provide excellent environmental protection and a very high degree of comfort at the same time. No wonder so many people have enjoyed the comfort and durability of a Sonar wetsuit. When you see old file footage around water on Australian TV, 99% of the time they're in a Sonar Wetsuit.

Other Australian Sonar Manufacturing
In the past Sonar also made a range of orthopaedic products for the medical industry; wet weather jackets and sailing shorts for boaties; triathlon suits and swimming shorts for life savers; special operations rescue suits for the police and special forces; neoprene filters and protective sleeves for the automotive industry; and wine coolers and stubbie holders for everyone. If it was made from neoprene, nylon or lycra, Sonar would make it.

Custom Sonar Wetsuits
Overseas competition forced the end of wetsuit manufacturing by Sonar in July 2013. Sonar is not currently manufacturing wetsuits in Australia, and is not able to produce custom made wetsuits at this time.

Sonar Watersports Australia
Along the way Sonar started importing and wholesaling masks, fins, snorkels, knives and a wide range of other diving products with great success. In August 2013, Lloyd Borrett purchased Sonar as an ongoing concern, and began trading as Sonar Watersports Australia.

With years of experience in commercial and recreational diving, swimming and watersports, Sonar has spread it's wings into importing a range of specalised watersports equipment. Catering from kids to adults, beginners to professionals, there's something for everyone.
