I bought my first board (a 7'4" Kamikaze mini-mal) a few weeks ago and I'm just getting around to thinking about a wetsuit. I'm heading to Newquay this weekend for a wedding and hopefully will get a chance to get in the water at least one day.
Can anyone recommend a decent surf shop for wetsuits, in, around or between St. Austell and Newquay? I think internet shopping's great, and I know I'd probably get a better deal if I hunted around online, but I'd like to be able to go into a shop and try some suits on and ask some questions and get honest answers.
Also, does anyone have any experience with those soft surfboard slings for securing boards on top of your car without an actual roof rack? A bit like this: http://www.fistralsurf.com/index.cfm?co ... =4&start=1
Are they safe for speedy motorway driving?
