Right, I'm looking into getting a cheap wetsuit (& possibly a rash vest) for the summer, as a mate has persuaded me to go with him when he goes windsurfing (he goes regularly as his dad owns a team or something).
now, besides not wanting to look like a complete idiot (which I will when I fall in the water every 5 minutes) the only thing I know is I would probably be best with a "shortie" type, and wouldn't need anything thicker than about 3-4mm as we're not going anywhere colder than a reservoir or perhaps the lovely and warm north sea
I've seen a few places do Osprey wetsuits for around £25, and rash vests IRO £10. is this a decent price?
or would a 2nd hand suit be cheaper and would i get away with it?
not looking for anything much more than to just get me through the summer. hopefully will have a new job by next year so unfortunately () I probably won't have time then...
any help appreciated
