    Wetsuits

    I know most of you will know alot about this since alot of you live north of me in south florida. But I am looking to purchase a "spring" suit since it does not get real cold in South Florida. I have been looking for a Jet Pilot Spring suit that fits people taller than 6'. Most of the suits are funky colors or full suits. I would like a black/grey short sleeve suit....it is supposed to be 76 this weekend so I need to button up!

    Does anyone have any good ideas on wet suits? Place to buy online or locally. Any brand better than others for PWC.

    I am seriuos. I am a floridian, once the water gets below 75 we freak out down here. I dont need a dry suit like the one in your pic, but I have been having a problem finding a quality spring suit for someone over 6'2" they are either awful colors or cheap in quality...I found the one I like in Jet pilot but they are for people under 6'.

    Hi, new to GreenHulk myself, but I had a problem finding a wetsuit for me also. I'm 6'3 300 lbs lol. anyhow, I bought a 7 mil suit, 3xxxl , felt like a d'''k in a condom, no room to move, etc... way to tight. Went to a scuba shop, they found me a 5xl 3 mil for 145 bucks. got him ordering me a two peice this week, same size, 260 bucks. Not cold enough here yet for a full suit. anyway, heading back up north next week, I'll find out where he orders from or, if you want I'll give ya their number, but you should be able to find the same thing around fl.

    The shorty I use is Black & grey with some blue trim around the seams.

    The brand is Stearns, I think I got it from Overtons, it's not expensive, I think around $50 but it is comfortable with flat lock seams. I have seen this brand inboating supply stores too.

    I use it some in early summer and fall
