My last back zip had a couple of big flaps to seal it at the back. Major pain in the arse to do a reach around and get them overlapping and flat before zipping. However pulling my chest zip off via my left shoulder which is a bit dodgy to start with can aggravate matters.

Anyone who can't handle a back zip should be banned from surfing.

You definitely had to manhandle my last one. Surely being easy to handle is what wetsuits aim for.

The only thing I like about my new backzip is how easy it is to get in and out of.

Just to clarify here I’m not talking about the regular zip cover flaps here. I’m talking about large overlapping flaps that seem to be a byproduct of a generic manufacturing process for front and back zips and sit under the smaller flaps.

We all know that you’ve got massive flaps, Beans. It’s cool.

How true. Shoulders been playing up a bit from getting out of my front zip……and surfing so often I guess. Tempting to go for a paddle today but there’s 200+ in the water.

Yeah, it was pretty shit. Nice to be in the water though. A bit of footage floating around of people “exercising” up the north end. Howls of protest about overcrowding. Fair enough.
