I'm curious how many of you refer to a barrel as "a vision" like moronic Joe Turpel.

"Jordy's going to get a vision"

Never.


And never called a turn 'a dropped wallet' either.

For a grand I’d be expecting some ‘hand blown’ too.

You get to keep it?
Because longevity would be an important factor in a review when paying that much.

Oh yes I get to keep it. like:

a) that's what you do with wetsuit tests - staged reviews. Intro-first wearings, then in six months a wear and tear review, then a second wear and tear review a year after that

b) I'm pretty sure nobody wants any wetsuit I've worn. You know I'm gonna piss in this thing, sweat in it, possibly do a small poo in it in honour of the Mighty Sunbird.

And you can buy one right now if you want. So you don't need to be a pro.

Ps Nick does seem somewhat preoccupied with the status of my sphincter.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that

Isn't 1mm rashie thickness?

Surely neoprene that thin would be susceptible to tearing?
