Thread: Scuba wetsuit

    Scuba wetsuit

    I just scored a brand new O'neill scuba wetsuit that is 7mm for $99 at a Marshalls. I was wondering if it is worth keeping it or returning it because I dont do scuba diving but I would use it for surfing. I am very thin and small so a 7mm may do me well. Whats everyones take on using a scuba wetsuit as a surfing one? It is a sector HOODED.

    It seems ti have plenty of flex for me. I may just try it out.

    I rember diving suits being very restrictive in movement. Maybe they caught up with wetsuit tecnology. It gotta be a heavy suit I would guess .

    It's a bit heavy. I think it would be fine for basic surfing. It may be restrictive for doing anything such as cutbacks but for very cod winter days I think it will be great just to get out on.

    not good..7 mm is way more than you need on the Delmarva and the missing hood sucks when the water/air is in the 30s and you might actually want the 7 mm rubber.
