Giant Fish Wetsuit Care & Repair

WATERWEAR CARE TIPS

RINSE

Rinse your neoprene in fresh water after every paddle. Easy.
Saltwater will corrode your kit really fast.

DRY - NEVER IN THE SUN!

Hang to dry on something nice and wide.
We like using a camstrap hung across our shower.
Flip them, dry both inside and out.

Dry in the shade or inside, NEVER IN THE SUN!
A little fan works a treat for quick dry circulation.

WASH

Every so often wash with a wetsuit shampoo.
Never use scented laundry soaps or bleach, we can smell you coming.

CARE

Take care when putting on and taking off your suits.
Neoprene is durable if handled properly.
Don't pull on the seams. You are not a flamingo so don't stand on one leg and yank them off in the parking lot, we have all done it. No bueno!

Treat your kit with respect and it will last for years.

REPAIRS

Nicks and tears happen. Fix them ASAP. Wash and Dry your kit then use some wetsuit cement to fix the little things before they become big things.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Wash Gear Aid Revivex Wetsuit Shampoo

Repair Gear Aid Aquaseal & Gear Aid Tenacious Tape

 

SHOCKING NEWS

Hard to believe that we even have to mention these tid bits.

Don’t pee in your suit.
Urine is highly corrosive and will destroy all the fine details we have worked so hard to create, like sealed seams and soft fabrics.

Don’t put your suit in the washing machine.

And by all means never in the dryer.

Don’t dump a wet suit into your bag and forget about it.
It will get stinky and moldy really fast, and there is no coming back from this mistake.
Once a stinker, always a stinker.
