    At what point is it ok to pee in your wetsuit

    Anytime is a good time after you put on your wettie- I’ve done it in the lot, before I bike down, you name it. Being pre-diabetic, I pee a lot and often. What I hate most is when I start and the set of the day comes, and you have to stop to get in position for the wave.

    Stoke to get a session in before the heavy rains arrived. First hour was clean, oily glass chest to hh sets - the waves blended into the grey skies. Waves were peaky and surprised shape held up despite - low tide. Water got cold and glad to be in a 4:3. First wave was the best one - fastest...

    Cars stopping at the red light with too much space in front of them - preventing you from getting into the left turn lane. Loud gym bros that let go of their weight machine - causing excruciating loud bang

    Afternoon perfection(close to) at local reef. Looong lefts and rights shoulder + . Glassy and very manageable crowds. Last wave was a right that kept going but after kicking out there was a small wave right behind it - board clocked my head at the hairline upon coming up. Small bruised and...

    Peaky hh a frames at the local. Pretty powerful beachies - backed off on a few - too old to take risks especially on a new board. Rode the Corey Graham quad channelled twin - supa dupa fast. Kinda digging it.

    Shark Attack - Marin County

    Just a pure guess but I think smaller boards or boogie boards means more paddling/splashing - which equates to an injured seal in the sharks eyes.

    Got a 2mm and 4:3 isurus full. Zipless and CZ. Had to have both cinch cord repaired. No flushing, warm, good fit. The 4:3 Evade is a bit constricting around the neck and the 2mm area around the butt does some weird peeling which I’ve never seen before in any wetsuit
