Most shops worth their salt will swap yr suit if it doesn't fit properly anyway, but it is still the most important thing IMO. No point having a £300 suit that fits like a dodgy Burtons blazer.
go in a shop, try as many as you can on. just say, "no, I don't like the fit" then go home, and fine last years online.

Bought from Surfed Out in North Devon. Im a pretty rubbish surfer and have been tanking about on a Mini mal for a couple of years.I'm 40 years old and 15 stone & I never thought I would be riding something smaller but I decided to take the plunge after talking to the guys in the shop and have bought a Lemondrop.
This thing flies! Really easy to paddle and catches waves that before I would have missed. It can be ridden as a quad or a thruster although I surf it with the quad set-up all the time now. I am progressing really quickly now and can actually cutback!
I would'nt suppose it would be of much use to the guys who rip but for a very intermediate surfer like myself it's fantastic. I reckon by next summer that I will be dropping down a few more inches. I am trying to find out if they do a 6'6?
So, if like me you want to progress your surfing to the next level, catch tons of waves and get out of the sea with a silly grin on your face then this is a superb board.

It is still warm as anything, even in north coast scotland rivermouth surf. It feels like you're wearing a knitted onesie and the hood is as warm as your favourite beanie. The seams are still good (2nd winter now) though I'm starting to feel drops of cold water around the underarm seams so there must be pinholes, but nothing to get too worried about. I would say the neck seal isn't as waterproof as the xcel design, and if you get tombstoned by the lip or bail awkardly it can properly flush with freezing water - this is partly due to odd design decisions on their part. The front zip suits are open on both sides of the zip, and without elastic to hold the open sides closed (xcel style).
That said I reckon the suit is going to be longer lasting by design as well. My theory is the extra insulation/woven inside of the suit (and it running just abuot all over rather than just an insulated chest panel) will keep you warm even as the seams inevitably age and some water starts to get in, whereas my previous winter suits were only warm as long as the seams are were in good condition.
