    I usually wear a burlap sack. Cheap and gives me a nice chaffing. Sometimes I take the potatoes out with me and throw them at the back of peoples heads. I made my own board from OSB plywood, I set it up as a thruster.. i use 8 inch sawblades for fins... its cool to see body parts floating in the water. Bull sharks seem to like it too... have fun!!

    I generally buy 1 good pair each year, and generally O'neill. For the last 2 years I've bought the hyperfreaks. They are by far the most comfy I've ever worn, and minimal chafe. The problem though, is with the waist string. The first pair i had, which are i gues last year's model (possibly the year before?), is that the amazing stretch material carries though all the way to the waist, and they simply cant get tight enough. The pair i bought this year are better, but the string setup needs to be improved. They ride up while surfing. So far this year, ive actually gone back to a pair of superfreaks i bought 3 years ago because they can be tied tight while surfing. did rashup though.
