Ah your secret’s out black duck, you have comically short upper arms, like a T-Rex.
Only people with normal length (or longer) humerus bones have trouble getting their arms out of chest zip wetsuits.

comically short arms and enormous feet by the sounds of it. I've never considered this before but perhaps he is an actual duck

You, my good sir, should be aware that my so called t-rex arms are Gowings standard length. Neither shorter nor longer.
You obviously have no flexibility or technique available, so the easy task of removing a wetsuit becomes difficult. You and shearer should team up in the carpark so you can help each other.

Using plastic bags for the legs is big in the adult learner community, I hear. Perhaps give that a try duck? Although on thinking about it, that's probably more of an 'on' thing than and 'off' thing. Maybe instead you could pop into Uniqlo with jimmy next time he's getting the waistband on his trousers let out and ask them to put in some little zips

Do you remember when ankle zips were the norm on wetsuits? Fcuking wetsuit material was so stiff ankle zips were standard on steamers. Early to mid 80s from memory. I was quite fond of them.

Slightly before my time I think. They do put them on kids' suits still, which is an absolute fucken godsend when you've got three of them to wrangle

The plastic bag trick did wonders back then.

BD, you're forgetting steve puts his chest zips on backwards. No wonder he struggles and despises them so much.

Not really. The little ones have got boogie boards and the oldest one has had a few goes standing in the whitewater on my tuflite zap. I'm an incredibly selfish person so would really prefer it if they decided that not to encroach on my surf time but we'll see what happens when they get a bit older

When mrs duck wanted me to teach the ducklings to surf I was diligent about it for a while and they feined interest in it for a bit. It usually led to me jumping on a coolite or longboard after their feined interest and surfing while they played in the shorey.

On another note, shrug just left the bathroom after a shower with the towel loosely draped on her torso. It sort of fell away while she was closing the door and I happened to look up at just as it was unfolding. She was unaware of the event, I think. I love an accidental moment.

My wife would have no illusions whatsoever regarding my level of attraction to a house guest like shrug. I would pay dearly for my keen interest in shrug's towel coverage, but no cost would be too great. There are some things money can't buy.

I think duck was complaining about getting out of the wetsuit. Plastic bag no help there.
And I find wetties are so flexible these days I have no problem getting them on or off. The half dozen or so times a year I wear one. :-o

, it’s the legs that generate the problem, not the zip.
Wrong.

Probably OK for you city dough boys who paddle a Kay a session at a beach break, if you are lucky.

Throw in a winter session where you are paddling miles against wind and current day after day . Different story.

Also, for any Mong with a mildly scientific mind, conduct a little experiment where you lie flat and then arch your back, like you would when paddling on a surfboard.
Now, imagine being enclosed in a material. Where is the extra tension from being in that hyper-extended position?

Correct. It is on the front of the torso. The chest and shoulders.

Right where all the seams and zips on a chest zip are.

Exactly where you want increased freedom of movement they have restricted freedom of movement, with seams and zips.

Dumb design.

Getting out of a back zip after a long intense session where your shoulders are screaming for mercy is so elegant, so sensual, so right. It's like eating a mango in summer.
Wetsuits are an abomination, cold water is just wrong. If God had meant us to surf in cold water he would have given us all an inch of blubber. But adding the insult to injury of a defective design which you pay a premium for just elevates the situation from the absurd to the insane.

Who's this shrug character BD?

Shrug was aware, well aware. The seduction has begun Duck.

I would suggest putting all your assets in a trust or company now to put them out of reach.

Sometimes I wonder if RS is just one big audition for a new series of Gilmore Girls.
