    wetsuit flooding

    I have a problem,

    It is almost boardshort weather but still if I am going out for dawn patrol I need a 3/2. The problem is that my only 3/2 is flooding a bit up the legs. Is there any way to repair them (rather than breaking down and buying a new wetsuit) so that they fit as snuggly around my ankles and don't flood? Thanks for the help!

    u could gain sum weight so that ur legs are bigger, or u could try to sew them so that they r tighter right at the ankles but that would b questionable as 2 whether or not it would work. i also have 1 other solution but it seems strange n might not work but it would b a cheap fix if it does. go out n buy sum cisco the cook fat stuf, put ur suit on n then roll up the legs so u can smear on a bunch of the cisco then roll the legs of the suit bac down, once again im not sure it will work but it would only end up costing u a couple bucs.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure about the crisco idea-I think that might just make me more appealing to whatever else is floating around out there. I think sewing them might be the best bet-but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. What type of thread would I need and would I need something to seal the cuff? I might end up toughing it out until the water warms up a little.

    Gaining weight seems like an unlikely and terrible idea.. but Crisco?!

    Try if its cracking and ripping around your ankles.. maybe a stitch of some thing fishing line, or nylon, and then sealing it with this stuff..

    Thank you so much! I think that may be exactly what I need. I was worried about getting it stitched because of the holes it might create so thank you for the recommendation!

    You can try some wide strap velcro fin savers that are used for saving your swim fins. Just tighten up down around the ankles.
