Really? Do you think is that easy? Unfortunately it takes a bit more than that.

Go for it man! And while you're at it pick up a tarp, some twine and a broom handle and make me a kite....thanks bro.

p.s. Don't need a board I'll just use the one I iron my clothes on.

Ok Lads. Thanks for all the input. Placed the order today.
@Rasmus, There seems to be no problem getting the suits here in Ireland.
If you want the distributors details here send me a pm and I will ask him if he can supply you.

I love my old OR drysuit the Pyro, why would I want to put on 3 separate garments??? The Pyro, like any drysuit, is a pain in the ass. The seals are the same. Why add more BS to do???

Its hard enough to motivate to go into 48 degree water with booties and a cumbersome drysuit. Are you guys losing it?

Man, if you try the predator you will see what we are talking about, the difference is as big as a c kite from a sle, you can use the undergarment if you want or not, the suit is not a pain at all, not in the water or getting it on.

I've used the predator drysuit in water temps from 2 degrees to 17 degrees in perfect comfort. I got it this spring and have used it multiple times- in fact it has been the only suit that I have worn.

My old suits were the original Pyro, and before that an O'Neil Drysuit, Neile Pryde 4000 series, and many, many others from windurfing days.

Without a doubt the Predator is the best one I've ever had.

The best part is the manouverability as the outside skin is something like 1mm thick. The inside suit is breathable, very easy to get on and off, and you can layer clothes underneath. I usually simply use the one piece Ocean Rodeo garment which is one of those that keeps moisture away from your skin.

Prior to getting this suit i was using a GoJoe board recovery tool as i always found it difficult to get back to my board. With the Predator I find that I body drag way to far upwind as it is so smooth and efficient. Hence, no more Gojoe.

Finally, the outside layer of the suit has a built in hood which makes it super cozy and stretchy wrists which allow you to put gloves over the dry part but under the second outside skin.


I really recommend this suit.

Brad

Good to know, but probably something that needs to be seen and tried in combination with the harness to be sure.
