    Gloves smell

    I was wondering weather i should get new gloves or a deoderant. If i would get new ones i would get the claw ones. I think they dont smell as much because they let air in more then the five finger ones i have now.

    all of my wet suit stuff smells.

    Ideally, you would rinse out with fresh water after every time you go in - i'm bad with this.

    they make wet suit shampoo, might want to go with that rather than by newstuff.

    I find that cold water soak with a capful of the Woolite does the trick. Be sure to rinse completely. Woolite is fantastic cos it is very mild detergent.

    ya thats absolutley rite. I had a crappy quicksilver syncro wetsuit for 2 years. It was fine cause i always rinsed it out after my seshes. brotha. You should also dry it inside out, then flip it back to normal once the insides dry. this way it won't smell like that dog poo you just stepped in because you were too inmature to look where you were going. way to go moron.

    Just hang it over the rail of your porch/deck and hope for rain.

    Agree to the wetsuit smelling...got the wetsuit soap as a gift and laughed then I tried it and I wont live without it.

    I try to rinse my suit after every couple sesh and I will wash it about 4 times a year and I am surprised every time how much dirt comes out of the suit when I wash it.

    I have been wearing the same 3/2 (year round) for about 3 years and its still in decent shape. In the market to finally be able to afford a good winter suit!

    buy the wetsuit soap, its worth the 5 bucks
