I'm sure the question has been asked before, but can I get some tips & suggestions on where to buy & what brand? Thanks. ;-)

Tara,

I just got a shorty wetsuit at Sam's Club for $29. Gotcha brand (if that is a brand) ....

I sell Ocean Tec for $200 plus shipping (usually about $10 or so). Top quality, American made suits. Baggie style. Most sizes in stock, but more on the way. www.boarditup.com This is not Asian import junk with a flashy marketing name. If you don't like it, I'll refund the purchase price.

Joe, where did you get your Bare?

i'd go with o'neill or bare. go with what's proven, and both are super comfy. the "no-names" do keep you dry for the most part, but aren't the most comfortable. i'd pick the bare over the o'neill, though.

I have an O'Neill Boost. So nice, I really love it. Super comfy.

Tara--Ordered out of Wavelengths Surf in Bakersfield (the Bare suit is an O'neill)...My size was easy ("super muscular yet not too bulky"....that's a medium) to get, but smaller sizes may be tougher...The owner here had his rep hunt em' down for me.....

MUUUUCHO better than a wetsuit....I'm already dusting mine off!!! If you decide on that one, and have trouble finding, email or call...My guy down here is great!

I bought mine on recommendations, and only had a neoprene loaner prior.....no history for comparison.

Supp, UMALI!!!

Clubjoe,
I had better not see that drysuit until at least the end of October! you can wear the hood whenever you want though.

I just got the Bare Ultradry from Got River? (http://www.gotriver.com) last year and I'm stoked on it. Although I was impressed with my old Bare neoprene suit because it lasted about 15 years, it just wasn't as comfortable as the baggy style.

By the way, Got River? was kind enough to donate one to our Katrina benefit auction, so get your bid on at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7184368166.

Clubjoe, why would you need the drysuit now? Doesnt the water stay warm all year at BV??

I picked up an Oneill Assault hybrid suit from a local GI Joes. It's a bit tough to get into, but for $99 I'll use it this year and then keep it as an extra.............

Grizzly sells Bare suits for $250 shipped. That's what they were going for last winter. Didn't find a lower price anywhere. R.V. is awesome on price and customer service!

Go Bare- gotriver.com, my buddy's Oneill, major problems with the zipper and more water intrusion on hard falls.

Grizzly Sports has the bare ultra-dry drysuits. I've heard they are great drysuits. their slightly baggy so u can wear whatever u want underneath and stay 100% dry. Grizzly is selling them this year for $270(thats w/ shipping) i believe. RV said his cost went up so he had to raise his prices.

I'm heading up a group buy for these particular drysuits w/ grizzly sports and the wakeboarding club here in Austin, TX.

i like the oneil boost... the suspenders hold the suit up and the neoprene neck is more comfortable (ROLL IT INWARD, this will help if you hit the water really hard).

the drawback is it is the more expensive of the suits... the bare cost less..

I payed 282 for a bare from grizzly that was with shipping to ohio.
