It is not the best windsurfing wetsuit on market but it will do the job for a reasonable price.

With the possible life-threatening exception of a dry suit intended for icy water, that's what matters. And trying them on is almost mandatory.

Not that I'm trying to suck up to OC; but we have a lot of similar thoughts.

Since preschool, in the bath tub with my GI Joe Frogman, I've had a fetish for neoprene.

As I've said before, my mother further corrupted me by taking me to see Thunderball in first grade. Wetsuits, fighting and good looking women - how cool can you get!

I wanted a 3 mil short sleeve for windsurfing and SUP'g. Not quite stretchy; but works well - my second Promotion. Don't get the kiter version as they add these supposedly "cool" flames.

For surf, front zip all the way for reducing the flush. I have a back zip 6/5/4 O'Neill with a velcro hood. OK; but not ideal. It's good for real cold days with not so big conditions.

Last year I added a 5/4 Excel hoody. A b!tch to get into but great in action.

Santa has ordered me a Isurus 434 I-Elite in small-tall to replace a wickedly fragile Bilabong.

Lastly, I still can't part with my Bare drysuit for plain old b&J sailing.

I don't care where the zipper is, my criteria is can I easily get it on and off w/o having to ask for help.
If you need help, forgettaboutit, help is not always available.

And I could use an occasional flush. Wink
