More Custom Rubber

My new wetsuit arrived. Sweetness and light!! It's so nice to be in something that actually fits me in all the right places (especially the hips, butt and shoulders). And I get to express myself too? Hell yeah, it's worth it!

Thanks again, Ryo!

This one has the thicker rubber. I wanted a warm springsuit. This one, because of the better rubber, was $260. Believe me when I tell you it was worth every penny. My winter suit is still going strong. That's my daily driver for now. It has not disappointed.

I reckon that's cheap - I pay $300 AU for an off the rack Ripcurl. Will have to buy on-line from now on. Cheaper from the UK even with postage.

Nice one Surf Sister! A worthy investment. Hope it brings you years of good surf.

Nice, how long did it take? The Xcels I've had are the best of the mass-produced stuff I've tried. But still a little bulky. And both my Xcels, the seam reinforcements have given out -- cd

It takes a few months as Ryo gets your order then either takes it or sends it back to Japan. The suits are made and then he brings them back. So, the next time he comes, I'll have him make me another winter suit. The thing is, the suit I've worn this winter has been going strong. The seams are fine. I actually think I can get another season out of it. Mind you, my off-the-rack suits only last one season. My current winter suit, which is sooooo flexible, shows a few signs of wear, but nothing major. Reunion is the only way to go for me.

BTW fitting in all the right places is an extra bonus and most necessary for women to rip it up! It's so hard to find a wetsuit that actually fits all a real woman's assets that is fashionable and comfortable.

Cool suit! Ryo's the man. Reminds me of the Gil Scott-Heron song when he mentions "Roy Wilkins strolling through Watts in a red, black, and green liberation jumpsuit that he has been saving for just the proper occasion". Hopefully your proper occasion will be many great sessions, enjoy!
