    Wetsuit Grip and Praa-se the Lord It Works!

    Post  piskian on Mon Dec 19, 2011 3:00 am

    After my slippy wetsuit and mitten woes,decided to use one to fix the other.Cut my mittens in two and glued them to non-smoothskin chest of the wetsuit!Works.Kana suggested I cut off the thumbs as they looked like lactating nipples.However,found little dots of Tip Top bicycle puncture vulcanising rubber on the chest are enough to provide grip and hint at heightened arousal.
    Also switched to my Neumatic,grip and material is a little grippier than my old 4GF for winter.
    So went down to Praa before dawn this morning to try it all out.Moon was high and bright,so in water by 0700.
    Great!Everything gripped and the Neu goes well with extra weight of winter wetsuit.
    Must have caught about 30% more waves than normal,and the Neu is so fast.Had been keeping it back til the 4GF wore out,but got to use it now.
    Only lost it once after a closeout barrel!
    That;s it til Thursday...

    How does the rubber glue feel? Is it tacky?

    Yep,a little.dunno how it'll survive the test of time.a little like Solarez or Aquaseal.Didn't want to hurt the neoprene!
    Tiptop isn;t strictly glue,so it seems alright...

    Repaired my gloves after wearing them to work with Soudal and finished of with a little stippleing and will be interesting to see if this will give me any more grip
