I just got an oneil boost dry suit and went out this weekend. My problem is every time I took a header lots of water came in through the neck and soaked my shirt. I read on here to roll the neoprene seal inside itself about an inch, I had it like that when this happened.
Oh yea, the neck seal is really tight so I don't think it's a size problem.
Aaron I got the same suit it works great for me. Like Matt said just fold it down an inch or two. And if all else fails just pack 3 to 4 t- shirts or sweat shirts in a bag and a x-tra pair of sweat bottoms and problem solved. A little water is a small trade off from wearing the old wet suit and freezing.
Bruce, I have'nt had that happen (I have only been out once in my suit) but a friend of mine that was having that problem pulled the seals up higher and that fixed it unless he took a hard fall. Hope that helps
Haha I probably stay drier in my wetsuit then you guys do in your drysuits. I have an O'Niell drysuit and used it for a couple of seasons then bought a OS Systems drysuit, which in my opinion, is much better with all latex seals. The past couple of years I have been using an O'Niell 4/3 Z.E.N. Zip wetsuit and will sometimes get a little water down the front but stay for the most part dry. With a wetsuit you have more flexability and comfort. Now if the water in California got much below 50 degrees it might be another story.
