    as others have said, yes it does matter. not to go off topic but I rinse my suit out after every session very well. usually once at the beach using the showers they got there then again once im home either with the hose or in the shower depending on if its winter/summer. my booties STINK though. even my brand new booties (this was there first winter) stink to high heaven. is this normal or does anyone have any ideas to prevent it. my gloves and suit witch are both older have no smell at all. do my feet stink that bad?

    Got an electric boot dryer. Drip dry for a couple hours. Toss the boots & gloves on, set it on cool for 3 hours (timer) and they are dry and no smell for next day. Worth the investment if you are in the water a lot.

    Wearing one's wetsuit to the bar, apres surf, is advantageous in several ways when you're on a tight sched:

    you can pour cold beer inside the suit to simmer down from your sesh;
    your friends can also, happily, pour cold beer inside your suit to cool you off;
    you can skip visits to the men's room & just void in your chair as you imbibe, thus saving more time;
    you can sit on the patio in February & claim the best seats & thus get quicker service.

    As for the 15 mins rinse-o, don't cut your sesh short for housekeeping duties. The wear-it-to-the-shower thing as the others have mentioned does double-duty as the clock ticks ominously.

    What I do is I bring my wet bag w/air vent with me so that when i'm done I can toss in there for the ride home, it's ventilated so it lets it breathe and doesn't get that nasty stink. Once home I take a shower and rinse my suit at the same time, then hang up and let dry right there in the shower. Doesn't take much extra time, maybe an added 2-3 minutes while showering.

    Take care of your gear, and it will take care of you.
    In cold weather/water surfing, the wetsuit is more important than the board.

    A foul-smelling, grodey-ass, bacteria-infested suit can be a heath hazard, possibly causing folliculitis, the dreaded crotch rot, and other sundry skin ailments.

    yeah my boots stink like anything. I rinse them off everytime. I"m looking forward to having to wear and deal with less stuff.

    were you the stinky kid in school when you were younger?

    never washing your suit sounds like the fast track to a staph infection or any other kinda nasty funk. just bring it in the shower and rinse it out there. if it starts to stink just soak it in the bathtub with mild dish detergent in the water over night. no one likes the smelly kid

    I always rinse out my suit after I surf. I got some of this stuff and it works well too for end of the season cleaning.

    and I even sprayed my boots with Fabreeze once and it did the trick of getting rid if the smell in my boots.
