Re: Where did you surf today ?

RS needs to recognise one of the Triple J (circa 1995) music aficionados of our time.

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Right I need some advice. I'm not getting younger and this cholesterol diet I am on has seen me already waste away from a healthy 89kg's down to 84kgs. Basically I'm getting thinner and the Victorian winter surf is no place for a thin man in a 5 year old 3/2 which is showing all the strain of me str...

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!

Re: that wetsuit discussion...

Yeah, the flashbombs are good. That's what I'll get if Torquay don't have oneill's. I believe they have reinstated the back zip as an option.

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 ...

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
