Before sewing it together- i would just try the glue. I have used it plenty and its pretty strong. Get the oneil glue or other WETSUIT glue which is like rubber contact cement ( i used the goop and did not like - rashes...). Local dive shops sell the stuff - called Trident. BUT make sure to follow the application directions. You cant go wrong with this stuff! If it does not hold- get out the dental floss!
Yo bro sent you a pm with more info

Whatever you do DON'T use AquaSeal tube product unless it's specifically (thin, not thick) neoprene glue. The thick stuff will void any warranty you happen to have on the suit, and it just winds up becoming big chunks that cause a rash, or more/bigger holes. The best approach is a vulcanizing process, coat both surfaces lightly and let them dry apart, after a few minutes press them face to face (as walking mentioned above) and hold them until the connection is secure.
hey i have a similar question. My oneill psychofreaks zipper lost some teeth somehow and the whole zipper ended up coming off of the wetsuit. It looks like I need a whole new zipper set up. Does anyone know of any good wetsuit zipper repairs or stores in the vb area that would offer this repair? Or am i better off just sending it in to oneill and getting it fixed?
I had an issue with my Mutant and i just took it to the shop i got it from and they contacted Oneill and ordered me a new on, hopefully I will get it in 2 weeks they said. If you contact Oneill yourself they will want you to send them your suit dry and clean, and then eventuality send you a new one, or your old one just repaired. If it's your only suit then i would definitely go through the shop you got it from.
