Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Backzip all day every day. Tried a chest zip once and hated it. Not you too, my brother. You aren't at the geriatric stage yet. Grooter struggles for other reasons. https://orig00.deviantart.net/d7a1/f/2016/335/5/3/violet_beauregarde_blowing_up_by_girard1020-daq9nlp.png :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's more a patience thing and I've had a backzip for nigh on 30 years. They work. In a world of constant change I like my wetties to be backzipped!

Must have realised there's plenty of old farts like me and unco tards like shearer in the market Hope life is good, you bulked up eating machine Backzip all ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Lost some weight, Grooter? I'm the opposite, tempted to try getting through with a 3/2. Shoulder struggles to move 3 mm. Gotta be a back zip too. Exceedingly difficult to get out of a chest zip without help Nah mate I've fcuken given up! 88kgs all day every day. Even done a bit of cycling the last ...

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Need to upgrade to a 4.3 for winter, the 3.2 is now 4 years old and is not handling the icy Victorian winter waters like it used to. Goodbye tax return

Re: winter

Gloves and booties now.

Saw some mad bastard out the other day at Flinders in a spring suit. Then he opened his mouth to reveal a richly toned pommie accent and it all made sense, Victorian water temps now must be like summer for them.

Had a decent surf on Saturday but no big monster swells yet
