Wetsuit advice for the tallest person ever!

Postby Jamboo » Wed Mar 28, 2012 12:06 pm

Hi All,

I'm 6'10ft and around 34" to 36" waist!

I'm looking to get a 5/3mm suit and the best I've found on the size charts is made by O'neil with their XLT which I should fit into.

So...question is I can't find anywhere that sells it! can anyone help me with suggestions of places I might be able to find it / order one.

Failing that any other makes I should be looking at for my sort of size?

Thanks all,

James 8)

6'10 is not the tallest person ever; he was more than 2ft taller than you and I think he wore a Snugg
STOP...... Hammertime

Looking at the O'neill sizing chart an XLT is still shy by 4 1/2 inches for your height and the waist will be loose.

Only solution, go custom.

It's a shame you can't still buy those diy kits in Exchange & Mart from the 70's, nice beaver tail combo with yellow tape trim..... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Unfortunate choice of product names at O'neill; Superfreak, Mutant BTW

You can order directly to Xcel wetsuits in hawaii, they do xxl-tall and I read in another forum one guy 6'8'' tall did it and the wetuit fits perfect on him. If I were you I 'd try to conctact them and ask how much they charge. That guy got a deal from them and they sold it by dealer price cause of the shipping.

Here is the link if you want to read it yourself http://www.x-h2o.com/showthread.php?29231-Wetsuits-for-tall-people-questions
