Regarding wet wetsuits, I use 2-3 jugs of water, filled up piping hot and turn the wet wetsuit right side - out, then put the jugs inside the wetsuit.

Presto, warm wet wetsuit, and I think it's actually warmer than a dry one.

If you're ever feeling it, splurge for a Yamamoto neoprene suit. Inside of my Isurus is about 95% dry from dawny by the time I get home from the office. Compare that to my R2, which takes a solid couple days to dry out fully.

this is exactly how i grew up.....used bad 80s wetsuits....in the 90s. learned that minimal rubber, if not trunking it is a blast compared to wearing bad leaky rubber. then i got better rubber and it improved....then found being freee is still better. then scored my first all two mil and was in love...then got a short sleeve all 2 and loved it more.....everyone said it woudl be differnet after i lost weight. 60 lbs down, under 2 bills.....still hating the rubber.

gimme as much ocean as possible.
