Does anyone have a drysuit similar the 2004 oneil boost, or the bare polar heat? you can see both of them here.'Neill.html
The snug fitting bottom (bare) looks to be easier to trick in, but how warm is it?
How well do drysuits take the punishment of boarding?
any input would be appreciated!

i recommend a baggy suit over a neoprene suit. the simple reason being you can decide how much warmth you want. layer up a bunch or not, depending on the temp that day. also it will fit more people if that is important to you.

I have some friends with the o'neill and they like it.

The O'neil was really nice, but the neck seal was pretty stiff and way to tight for my liking. I sent it back to shuswap and swaped out for the Bare Ultradry. I've only used it once so far but it worked like charm.

I would also second what Tim said.

i've used both, i like the baggy better too. with the snug fit, you have to strip down a little or have your shorts bunched up with your boys....that gets uncomfortable. and its not fun when its really cold. with the baggy, sweat pants and all stay on if you want.

My husband and I both have the O'Neills, and love them.

I've tried a few of them and my favorite overall are the BARE ultra dry. You won't get ANY water inside and they are baggy, enough room to move for wakeboarding. I can layer as much or little as I want. Grizzly sports sells them for $250 with tax and shipping included. Best investment ever made.

Thanks everyone! How far do you push your riding while in a drysuit? do you ride like normal, or take it easy?

with a BARE, you can do everything that you'd do without, if not more.
