I spoke in haste there Gav. It's an OK suit but has developed some leakage, small pin holes that I have touched with some product. I was surprised how they have appeared. You will not find anyone more careful with a suit with regards to putting it on, getting it off and after surf care. I think it is the fault of the lining they have used in this case.
Until buying this suit I had used Rip Curls exclusively, apart from a one off Neil Pryde over the shoulder velcro jobby which literally did fall apart in no time.
Sizing is also an issue. The large in a Rip Curl has always been spot-on and this O'neill is a tad snug/tight.
However the new look Phil, who has lost half a stone in three weeks will probably see a difference in the O'neill next time in the water...............PM me for dieting tips and secrets........
