    Unraveled Wetsuit Seam

    I got a new Quiksilver ignite wetsuit in august, yesterday i notice when i got out of the water that one of the seams on the chest panel had competely unraveled. The seams are taped so it isn't falling apart or anything. I don't know what to do because i think you can send it back to them and they will repair it, but doesn't that take weeks? That's the only wetsuit I have and i definitely can't not surf for a month while waiting for it to get repaired. Anyone expierienced this or have any ideas. Also, is the taping strong enough to where i could wait till spring?

    Grab a needle and thread and sew it up. Double up the thread to it is stronger. Better than being wetsuit-less for several weeks.
