I'd try Shop on the Beach at Watergate or Down the Line in Hayle, both excellent.

You live in Falmouth and you can't find anywhere to try a wetsuit on? I'm surprised none of the shops have any girls suits in?

Go and speak to Keith who runs Freeriders, and tell him Chris from Porthleven sent you in. He'll sort you out, he's a really good guy. It's on the Moor, just up from Lloyds TSB, other side of the road to KFC. Normally some boards in a rack outside.

Or, go and have a look in Sessions, or Ann's Cottage, both in the main street in Falmouth, both surf shops.

Failing them, Newquay town centre has half a dozen surf shops stocking the usual brands, Perranporth has a couple of surf shops, Hayle has Down the Line, and they're the main ones really, with probably the biggest choice.

You'll need to be quick though, they'll be getting in the summer stock now!

Yeah, that's going to be your problem now, the most popular sizes and suits will be gone. If you know what size you are in certain makes, you could always look online too? Most will do a refund/swap if it doesn't fit.
