What is the best way to rinse a wetsuit?
Saltwater and pee are bad for the neoprene in wetsuits so it is best to rinse out a wetsuit after using it. When you pull a wetsuit off it will come off inside out, if you rinse the outside then spray water inside the suit (making sure you get the hose down the arms and legs) you should be able to get most of the salt water off the suit. You can also dunk the suit in a large bucket of water.
Keep the wetsuit inside out when drying so that the first bit of the wetsuit to dry is the inside.
If you are wearing boots and gloves these should both be given a good rinse then hung in an inverted position to dry. The c-monsta wetsuit hanger and dryer is perfect for this. When you want to surf next, the hanger will have all your kit dry, together and ready to go.
