Check out the videos below to see how to properly put on your new wetsuit.
- New wetsuits can be hard to put on. The material will loosen up when wet, and will conform to your body with use.
- The neck, wrists and ankles might feel tight. They prevent water from flushing in and out of the suit, and will loosen with use.
- Extra neoprene in the armpit is okay. This helps with paddling and range of motion.
- Watch out for those fingernails! They can put holes in your suit.
- Too big: Excessive bunching around the torso and/or top of legs.
- Too small: material’s stitching is stretched to the point where it is very shiny; range of motion is severely limited.
- Do not stand on the suit material. It can damage the suit, especially on a rough beach parking lot.
- Rinse your wetsuit inside and out in cool, fresh water after each use.
- Hang dry inside-out, folded at the waste, out of direct sunlight.
- Occasionally soak with wetsuit shampoo, then rinse thoroughly.
- Never iron or use a clothes washer or dryer.
