A DIY method to fixing a hole in your wetsuit.

Following our recent photo essays on cold water surfing and big waves in Alaska, I realized this weekend that I had a hole in the knee of my wetsuit. The Atlantic waters will not be very forgiving for much longer, so thank goodness for the DIY gods over at Korduroy TV, who have made a video on how to repair wetsuits with floss and neoprene cement.

It’s cheaper than buying another $200 suit and more convenient than going to a surf shop. All in all, it’s probably a good skill to have when the waves are looking too good to wait.
