been out surfing in the ocean a bunch the last couple weeks and bought a new wetsuit ...... last year we were talking about wetsuits vs drysuits ...... alot of people liked the oniel heat wetsuit ...... i just bought one today and used it and i was amazed at how comfortable and easy to move in it was ..... i havent been in a new drysuit but i dont see how it could be any more comfortable then the oniel heat wetsuit

I went with that suit this past spring and have the same thoughts. The first couple of times I wore it, my shorts didn't even get wet. I tried on several dry suits and decided that they weren't for me. I couldn't stand the collar suffocating me around my neck so I went with a wetsuit instead of the dry. I have worn it in 52 degree water and it was great.

Wow. That's $100 off MSRP. Do you mind posting where you got it for that price?

Thats pretty funny. How can you not pee though? I remember being out in Ventura in the Fall or Early winter, l looked forward to a good pee. ;-)

I've been talking with my two daughters about the perils of pee in the wetsuit. They think it's hysterical.

I thought it was gross when I was told about "surfer's delight" when I started surfing more in high school. Enough to wear a suit and hit the cold water. But once you do it, you look forward to it. LOL, it probably helps protect you from the crap in the ocean. I have no idea about that, just funny.

Looking forward to surfing with you guys soon Frank!

I went and looked after you posted that and it turns out that I have the Epic II and not the heat - please disregard my comments towards the heat suit and direct them towards the cheaper version called the Epic.
