Hello everyone!

I have bought my first wetsuit, and is the first time I try one wetsuit (I started wakeboarding last summer). Just to know, how you felt the first time you wore a full wetsuit? Mine is a 4/3 billabong FOIL MS. It feels pretty tight! The sensations are a bit strange...

Thank you!!

I have never worn a full wet suit, but I do wear a HO 2mm shorty at the beginning and end of the season when it's cold out. It does feel weird and kinda restrictive at first, especially dry. But once you get it in the water, everything loosens up a bit and feels a lot more comfortable.

"The sensations are a bit strange". What the hell does that mean...My advice: Try to concentrate on the wake boarding not girls.

Mine is one with extra stretch so I don't tear it wile boarding. It should not be so tight that is is hard to get your fingers under the fabric at your wrist, but you also don't want it to let water flow in and out of it freely.

A new suit should be a little uncomfortable new and dry. It will loosen a bit when wet and also break in with time. The worst thing you can do is buy one that is nice and comfy in the shop. In no time, water will flow through that thing. In a new, good suit, your torso should be completely dry for your first few rides.

As for a drysuit, I had one for years, but I have retired it because I finally spent the money on a good wet suit. You stay almost completely dry in a good 4-3 and it is far more comfortable. That said, I no longer ride on super crappy days because we have so few in Houston. Dallas was a different story.
