Surf lessons or new wetsuit?

Postby Georgie94 » Mon Jul 27, 2015 5:45 pm

I only recently started surfing and really need to get myself a wetsuit. Thing is, I'm tight on cash so if I go for a wetsuit, I won't be able to afford any more lessons for quite a while.
Anyone think one is worth more than the other?

Wetsuit every time. That means you can surf whenever you want. (I'm making the massive assumption here that you have a board).

Also, have a look at eBay....you can quite often pick up some great bargains on second hand suits.

A good comfortable wetsuit is likely your best decision in this sport. Well besides the right board.
Good Luck!

Wetsuit. Surf lessons can only teach you little.

hey there,

Cosy wetsuite is really important. I had a cheap one when I started surfing. I always felt so cold during the sessions. Couldn't spend that much time in the water specially when the air temperature was low. Finally I bought a high quality wetsuite and it changed my life.
Surf lessons are cool but you will find lots of good stuff on the internet. Just be patient!

See U in the water:)
