Science is just how my head works. I always liked it... through school and through college... and eventually became a high school science teacher - physics, chem, bio, earth science.
I think there's a best way to do everything. So I'm always looking for suggestions that make sense to me, and offering what I think is the best advice. And the irony is... well... I'm sure you've heard of Occam's Razor, right? The idea isn't to complicate things, but to distill problems and questions down to their simplest explanation. Ha!

Oh shoot, where to put my boots and gloves? A hanger? Great now I need to get mini-hangers.......but what model and color?
Bacteria? Oh man I never even thought aboot that one. Great.
This is getting crazy. Maybe I'll just quit surfing. Hey, no shark problems that way, right?
first off, never hang your wetsuit by the shoulders on a hanger. Even dry, the weight of the suit will stretch the thinner neoprene in the shoulders and accelerate the time in which they rip. I always hang mine folded at the waist, where the neoprene is thickest.
Also, neoprene is fairly perishable. It's going to dry/weaken by sun, salt, stretching and just time, itself (the warranty on them is only about a year, so that says something). Aquaseal or any neoprene glue is a must to lengthen the life, but then things start getting pretty ratty looking, pretty quick.
Maybe buy a cheaper suit next time, so when when water starts flushing in, you can buy a new one without it hurting your wallet so much.

A. Keep my cool and drive off quietly, to not ruin parking there for the next fella
B. Scream at him and tell him to F himself?
or 3. Drop towel and wetsuit for all to see and wait for cops to arrive?
