Fun Wetsuit Hack

What's up sluts? It's been a chilly winter on the east coast, and I've found myself with a less than ideal wetsuit situation at this point in the season. I have an older suit, booties, gloves combo thats hanging on for dear life, and I'm too poor/stubborn to buy new stuff this late in season (not to mention its damn near impossible to find what you want because of the covid supply chain issues yadda yadda).

Anyways, I patched up some holes in my suit using the old faithful dental floss + neoprene cement method, but there's this one hole in my bootie that just wont quit! It's been limiting my sessions to about 1.5 hours max, which is frustrating when its fun.

Yesterday though, i found a temporary (and cheap) solution to keep me out there just a little bit longer. I was walking back up the beach to the peak and wondering if my foot was too numb to continue, or if I could send it back out for a couple more before calling it quits. Thats when I realized "hey, maybe if I just pee in my suit now, and let it trickle down into my bootie, it'll warm my foot up enough to grab a few more". You bet your ass I did it, and you bet your ass it worked! Gave me another 30 mins out there I reckon.

So, to all of you just trying to make this years winter suit hang on for the rest of the season, there's hope.

About The Wetsuit Choices.

I guess most of us here know that Judy isn't openhearted to anyone easily, when we met Judy in this quest, we didn't know what happened to Judy in 48hrs after Pisces, even from the beginning of this quest, Judy didn't wanna tell V the truth. Until the bathroom scene, we can see Judy undressed her wetsuit after V back to the bungalow, then she started to talk about the incidents that her friends happened.

Personally, the finalized wetsuit covered Judy's body, has symbolized a wall that she built up to shut herself off>!, except for V, coz she wanted to confirm their relationship or to have a farewell to her!<.

I think the devs have made a great choice about the wetsuit, if the devs chose the concept art wetsuit, it would be ruined the symbolization and intention of the whole quest.

Wetsuit or dry suit?

Hey everyone, I’m brand new to the sub. My apologies if this is been asked a million times before, but I’m looking for advice as to whether I should get a wetsuit or a dry suit. Assume that price is not the deciding factor. I am looking for something for SUPing in April and May in Lake Ontario in Toronto. The weather is usually between 40 and 60Β°F during this period but the water hovers just above freezing. The water can be quite choppy, so it’s not uncommon for me to fall in once or twice in an hour long session. I don’t wanna die of hypothermia when I fall in, but I am concerned about overheating while paddling vigorously. Thoughts?

Wetsuit repairs - worth the trouble?

Does anyone have experience getting their wetsuit repaired? I picked up a used 4/3 wetsuit for under 100 bucks a few months ago as my second pair. (I've got a 3/2 as my main kick). The 4/3 wasn't in a mint condition to begin with, but it has now developed a small hole or two in the neck area, along the taped seam. I am considering repairing the wetsuit because the wetsuit is intact otherwise and, as you know, new 4/3 wetsuits are expensive. On the other hand, I am wondering if buying a new one will get me better value per use in the event that the repair does not last long or my wetsuit develops other holes (which seems like a likely scenario).

If you have repaired your wetsuit before, I'd appreciate any advice that you might have!

Wetsuit anxiety

Hey πŸ‘‹ all, new to this forum, seeing how there seems to be a wide range of expertise here, I'm wondering if wearing the two piece open cell wetsuit has caused anyone some anxiety, especially getting through the top and hoodie? Is this a thing or is it in my head, i do use lots of shampoo and not generally anxious from diving or being underwater, so this reaction is surprising me a bit, anyone else. It is a brand new suit, and my first of this style so not sure if that makes a difference!

2-piece swimming wetsuit recommendation for a tall skinny girl?

Hey everyone,

No prior experience with open water swimming (and frankly no prior experience on reddit either) but I have recently moved to a tiny village in southern Europe and I'm 10 min away from the sea, which I naturally want to enjoy as much as possible.

So, I was happily surprised to discover that there was a whole community for open water swimming! And that's why I decided to try and ask for recommendations from experienced swimmers out there for the right wetsuit/swimwear.

Factors I considered:

  1. Water temperature rarely drops below 15Β° Celsius (59Β° F) here. Makes me suspect a 3/2mm suit may be the right range (?)

  2. Sun protection - a fullbody suit seems a smarter option considering I plan to swim 3-4 times a week, at least 8 months a year, in a sunny region. Different thoughts?

  3. I'm pretty sensitive to cold, unfortunately... (bad genes/medical history in the family) - i.e. I can wear gloves when walking outside in air temp. of 16Β°C (60Β° F) already while my friends make fun of me :) On the upside, it also means I don't expect to overheat in a fullbody suit if swimming around/in summer's early cool mornings.

  4. My odd body measurements, probably make the choice of a wetsuit most difficult and this is actually why I ended up considering a two-piece...

I am roughly:

  • Height 180 cm (5 feet 11 inches)
  • Weight 53-55 kg (116-120 lbs) Chest ~79 cm (31 inch) Waist ~65 cm (25-26 inch) Hips ~93 cm (36-37 inch)
  1. Budget. I hope to be able to find suitable wear for max. ~150 euros. If no decent options in this range, I may be able to stretch it to 200 euros.

So! Anyone has any experience with two piece wetsuits specifically for swimming (I know divers use them a lot)? And maybe other solutions for the "too tall+skinny syndrome"? Or is a 2 piece the only viable option?

Would tremendously appreciate your input!

Wetsuit for SF/Bay Area

2 weeks ago I asked for general tips and tricks... I guess I'm all in now! I'll be taking my lessons as soon as schools open here in March/April.

What kind of wetsuit would you riders recommend for the SF area? Water temps range from 53F to 60F. Air temps peak 60F in the winter, 80F in the summer.

I've been looking at https://www.mackiteboarding.com/buying-the-right-wetsuit-for-kiteboarding.htm, which for 53 water + 60 air = 113 would br recommending a 5/3, but I'm not sure how reliable this is.

So, which wetsuits have you been finding success with? Would you recommend buying new? Used? Any specific brands to look for/avoid? Thanks!

How do you store your open cell 2 piece wetsuit?

I’ve watched a few YouTube videos where it’s recommended that after cleaning and drying you should roll it up. First roll the bottom, then put the bottom on the top and roll them together. Then store.

Curious to know if there is a right way to store it that is not what I mentioned above.

Lets talk wetsuits

My current wetsuit has been cracking after about 100 sessions like so

I've learned that its nice:

  • to wash it with fresh water after every session
  • not dry it in direct sunlight
  • never ever use nails to pull them off

I'm hoping these^ will double the life of my next wetsuit.

Which brings me to the my main ask, what wetsuit make/model would ya'll recommend? I'm hoping to make it last atleast 400 sessions, which may be a lot to ask, but then again I'm hoping to keep using my current one for another 50 sessions / through the winter season.

Any random tips / suggestions for wetsuit care welcome!

Don't put the wetsuit on backwards

We used to have a spare wetsuit in the van that was so old the ass was torn out of it - not just a split, but a 4" wide hole; but it was a good spring suit in its day, so we kept it around in case one of us ever needed a spare. Just put a pair of shorts over it and you're good.

A friend from the Midwest came to visit and he asked us to take him surfing. We loaded up the boards and went down to San-O. My dad hands him THE wetsuit. He looks at the suit, looks at dad, shrugs, goes into the van to change, and comes out...with the wetsuit on backward.

It's been 20 years and I still have spontaneous uncontrollable laughing fits thinking about this guy standing there with his junk hanging out of the wetsuit, and his head tilted to the side like a confused dog.
