Yeah I had a need suit a few years back. Didn’t like the fit. Definitely good value though.

I must have a weird body. Some suits fit me really well, others not so good.
Same. Can’t take advantage of O’Neill warehouse for steamers, they just don’t fit me.
Yeah that’s why I’m a bit suss about buying online. I really need to try them on.

New steamer every year for me, but unlike realsurf I actually surf.

Fixed that for you mate.

Like iggs I drive a lot. Last year I would have surfed well over 150 days so that's reasonable value for a steamer. And my old ones become various incarnations of spring suit.

If it was cold, buy a new steamer every year and harden up.

I’m an M straight up in most suits except a Quik, who obviously make Ms for taller and weaker people than me.

The suit I want right now is a 3/2 zipperless Flash Bomb which I think is infinitely the best temperate water surfing wetsuit available. I wonder if Rip Curl will just give me one.

I think plugging it on realsurf like that will be more than worth it for them.
