Re: Where did you surf today ?

Come now stevinald, there's no need to be unpleasant. I'm just struggling to follow the logic of your argument. The rationale for sealed seams is to retain as much of that thin layer of warm water between you and your suit as possible. Essential when the water's cold, pretty much irrelevant when it'...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

You’re saying you need sealed seams because the air is cold even though the water is boiling. I’m saying you don’t. Clearer?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Disagree. Well, I agree with the general point about overlock/flatlock suits but surely you need proper seams for cold water not cold air

Usually referred to in the case of rain.
The problem with your casually adopted contrarianism is that, amusing though it may be, it’s so easily rebuffed. Google ‘bucketing down snow’ and you get at least two results from Australian websites on the first page alone

Re: General snow stuff

Courchevel is great but I wouldn't particularly want to stay there. The prices are ludicrous and it's chockful of arseholes (present loofys excepted, of course). Also, as with Meribel, it doesn't have to try so it doesn't try meaning shitty two man chairs, those crappy bubbles with the slots for you...
