    going out on a limb here...

    so i was just thinking... has anyone ever thought about, or tried wearing under armour under their wetsuit (maybe if it was a little to baggy, or not)??

    it might sound a little out of the ordinary/ weird, but it was just on my mind

    I have a long sleeve top but its not baggy . I wouldnt think you would want it baggy cause it could collect water if you suit gets flushed

    thats what i was thinking, but i know there are some people out there who say "my suit only lets in a teaspoon of water!" or something along those lines, thats what i was mainly referring to. but i definitely wouldn't try it if the suit is prone to flushing or doesn't have great seams

    Hey mate,

    I was wearing my rash guard under my 3:2 and it was perfect, the rash guard was a tight fit so it all worked out. Now I use my winter suit, but it did the trick till about a week ago.

    Whatever you wear, make sure itís tight and doesnít hold water.

    Happy Surfing!

    I imagine you could pull it off, that stuff is like 1 mm neoprene isn't it?


    I've rocked a rash guard under my suit, but once it gets really cold it almost becomes counter productive. The reason I say that, and this is only in my experience, the neck of the rash guard tends to break the seal of the wetsuit around my neck. The result is I get flushed way easier with a rash guard on than without it.

    You might also want to check out one of those vest/hoods that you can wear under your suit. Even though the suit might flush a little more, you won't feel it and the extra neoprene on the core area makes a huge difference. I haven't worn one but I have a friend who does all winter. He said it's more restrictive on his breathing, but the trade off is he is always the last one to want to get out.

    ive heard of people using it, along with wool socks (wool maintains its warmth even when wet), but i couldnt imagine a wet tshirt would be very warm?

    I usually try to wear something a little more naughty under my wetsuit. Something lacy and frilly, ya know? Maybe you could cut the nipples out of that underarmour top? That would be a start.
