the hyperflex is 1.5mm, I have one of those, water was 23-24 last week with sun, i was feeling really hot with it so a water at 29 will be really hard. I m starting to consider a rash vest 0.5mm singlet and i ll put a long sleeve normal shirt on top, might be the best solution. My nipples actually are fine, is more the belly area / sternum. And also underarms can hurt if too much friction, that s why the singlet combination can actually be pretty good

in addition, put on gold bond or neosporin immediate post surf.

Runners use a thing called body glide, same idea and easy to find. Really, it's a product of skin friction so any skin lubricant should work. I'd probably go nonwatersolube over water soluble for obvious reasons. apply surf repeat.

Found this while packing for a CR trip recently, 1-1.5mm super wide neoprene with velco that I can wrap around my lower rib and chest area. Got it locally at Walmart for like 5 bucks!

Worked like a charm and it'll double duty for your wifey too! dancing

You could always get one of these but it might be a bit extreme

I have always had board rash issues around the armpits and at the sternum but have no issue with multiple long sessions per day wearing the ONeill 1mm

that's awesome. gonna order a few.

so the glide/lube etc is for pit/taint rash. wear some sort of shirt for chest rash and undershort /liner for dick rash. not super cool but who give a fook. it'll help with the rash.
