    yet another gimmick for the corporate surf industry to make money off of "new technology"

    i can see it now, plug in your wetsuit to your cig lighter to charge battery, along with your waterproof ipod and waterproof cell phone. if i ever see any of the fore mentioned at my break, they're gettin stuffed, and shown the way to the parking lot.

    continuation of the bastardization of the sport angers me.

    A heated "wet" suit makes about as much sense as. . .

    the electric potato peeler they sold a few Christmas' back. Sort of overkill, eh? All things considered, that kind of money would be better spent traveling to warmer water and climates. Zzzzzzztttttt! Electric Shock Therapy.

    Worth it?

    H-Bombs are out. $1000 for a 3/2 and $1100 for a 4/3. Has anyone tried it? I'm moving to Netherlands in January so thinking about getting one for the cold North Sea.

    PS - WRV in Va Beach has them & everything's on sale at 15% off, think through the weekend.

    word on the street:
    The rip curl rep stopped by K-Coast a 2 weeks ago and was showing it off. He may have left a suit at the shop for display. Pretty sure K-Coast isn't planning of sellin it yet ( costs over a grand) So theyyyy may stilll have it,if u wanna peek it.

    For only $100 more, seems like a no brainer to get the 4/3, right? How do you think this suit would compare to a 6/5/4 in terms of warmth? Think the H-bomb would be comparable or significantly better?

    I've looked on Rip Curl's website and it seems like they've done a lot of testing - electronic and saltwater testing to prevent corrosion, testing the electromagnetic field with sharks, and battery testing. Guess it's going to be a gamble to see how well this thing stands the test of time. Would be a shame if the heating unit stopped working or if the batteries went kaput. $1000 is a LOT of money....
