    Tips for Wetsuit wearers

    I am not sure if you guys have any other tips, but the other half showed me something awesome yesterday! Plastic bag over the foot before shoving your leg into your wet suit. I never thought of that and it seems to make getting into a wetsuit infinately easier.

    Enjoy.

    PS Twoshot - how's your new suit going?

    Vasaline ...seriously.. arm pits and behind knees will stop chaffing if your doing long hours in your wetsuit.

    Also if your are getting into a damp or wet wetsuit dunk your wetsuit in the tide and splash water on to yourself. It will help.

    when drying your suit rinse in fresh water allow to drain, then hang on a coat hanger out of direct sunlight do not pack away damp!!

    None of mine have shrunk over the last 25-30 years, they both still fit, sort of. Did you wash yours in water that was too hot?

    Anyone got a good tip on how to get rid of the cavity below the bottom of the ribcage and the hips. Damn thing just fills with cold water.

    Vaseline is a petroleum product. Petroleum products break down rubber. Wet suits are made of rubber. Not so good in the longer run when the arm pits perish
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Mint But it is feeling a bit left out at the moment! used to use the plastic bag on the old one but it was so tight that once my foot or arm was thru i had to cut the bag off at the ankle or wrist cause it would not slide out and that would require 4 bags every time i put it on!

    I'd be lying if I didn't say that it was quite comical teaming up with your girlfriend to just try to zip the legs up.....

    Might be worth a go, but I'll need to get two. One to add weights to, the other to tighten the middle. Don't have any as they were bought for surface stuff (Yak and swimming). Found a clip of the first owner of the swimming one too. 1987 Cadbury Moro Bar New Zealand TV Ad - Rick Wells - YouTube

    As for the rest of you lots suggestions, ....
