Ellie wrote:I think it depends on whether the seams of your wetsuit are sealed or not - my 3/2 doesn't have them so water seeps in pretty much everywhere there is a seam, and especially around the zip (lots of seams!). I don't think its anything to worry about, just something to wake you up when you start to paddle out!!
On thicker winter suits (and possibly some 3/2s) the seams are sealed - they look like they have black glue running along the seams when you look at it inside out.
my boyfriend went around all the sems inside his 3/2 with Black Witch (wetsuit repair sealant) to make it a little less vulnerable to water seeping in. But whatever, it still gets in, as like Steve says, they're not waterproof.
When it gets to the stage where you're not warming up at all, its time to move to a thicker suit!
