Re: that wetsuit discussion...

And it will until there is some way I can get back to the high-water point of wetsuit design and functionality; which was an O'Neill Gooru.

LS Spring, buttery rubber sealed seams. Bat wing, back zip.
Warm, flexible and easy as fcuk to get in and out of.


Sadly, now extinct.

It took me a good wrestle to get out if it. Hopef...
