    Ive never had to do this to my wetsuits before but Ive heard of people stitching rips in their wetsuit just like you would a pair of pants. Then I know surf shops have this stuff that is like rubber cement that you can put over the stitch to make it water tight. Again, never dont this before but its worth looking into..maybe it could hold it until the swell passes and then ship it out. I would start at the the surf shops to see if they have the stuff and then work from there...good luck, lemme know if it works out...

    try a seamstress or someone that does alterations to clothes. I had a zipper break in a leather riding coat and I took to one to get it fixed . cost me 20 bucks plus 10 for the zipper
