Re: Wetsuit thickness question for Floridians

If you drink a lot of water before and during your dive day, you can remove at least 1-2MM of neoprene due to the layer of pee. I swear my 3mm feels like a 5 on some of those days when Im really chugging. Side note... Beer is 93% water right?

I love that game!

I'd guess that it's best to let it out a little at a time so you're always warm. Like moving in front of the jet in the hot tub.

Although, maybe when you hit a thermocline, it's nice to do a little power burst.

I think beer is 93% water and 7% pee. That's why it's slightly yellow.

One of the few games where you never run out of "Who has some wood?" jokes.

Do you feel violent urges to break your wetsuit when you miss a gimme shot?
