Hey i was just wondering if anybody is having the same problem as me, and if you do what your doing about it. Whenever im surfing in a wetsuit the back of my neck always hurts its like im getting a rash from the suit. And i dont think its the suit because my spring, summer and winter suit do it. Any experience with this or solutions to it ? Thanks for the help guys.
I have one suit that does this. It's the one and only entry level suit that I own, a 3:2, that I figured would work ok in the early fall and late spring. I now figure it was a mistake to buy it. For a few dollars more it is worth getting something more comfortable, especially if you surf on a daily basis.
Don't use vaseline. Petroleum disolves neoprene and can degrade your wetsuit over time. I use Body Glide. It comes in a stick similar to deoderant. It is used by runners, cyclists, and tri-athletes. Runners and cyclists use it to prevent chaffing during long races and workouts. Tri-athletes use it to make it easier and faster to get their wetsuit off during the transition from their swim leg of the race. It's 100% safe for wetsuits. It's a little expensive, but lasts for a 3 hour surf session. Totally worth it.
