Barefoot Dry Suit and Wakeboard Drysuits Will Extend Your Season

Updated on February 13, 2011

Barefoot International Dry Suits and Wakeboard Drysuits Secrets To Extending Your Summer

It would be nice if we all lived in paradise like Winter Haven, Florida, wouldn't it? A  Barefoot International barefoot dry suit or a wakeboard drysuit can create your own little portable heat sources by keeping you dry and warm inside!

How does it work? Well, a good barefoot dry suit is made of strong material that does not allow the water to pass through like it does when you are in a wetsuit. In addition, when you wear a wakeboard drysuit or barefoot dry suit, you can wear whatever you want to underneath. If you want alot of protection, then you can wear a barefoot suit or even a slalom ski or wakeboard neoprene suit. This combination will allow you to have an almost endless summer long after everyone else has given up!

The original barefoot dry suit can work as a wakeboard drysuit or even a wake surfing or kayaking drysuit because it has been designed to withstand the greatest abuse. To get in a drysuit, you will need to step through the heavy duty rubber zipper that is on the upper back of the dry suit.

But wait for me! I am going to show you the insider secrets to really enjoying your dry suit. The key is not to jam your feet through the rubber seals that are in the legs and the arms as well as the head. The correct order is feet, arms, and finally, the head followed by closing the zipper!

Once you have your feet through the back of the drysuit, slide them up to but not through the leg seals. If you force your feet through the rubber seals in the legs, you could slice a seal with your toe nail or simply strain the seals by pulling too hard. No! The key is to use your fingers to create an opening that will allow your feet and ankles to slide through. Another great tip is to always do a light spray of your Seal Tech treatment on all seals each time out and when storing your drysuit so that the seals last a long time AND make for a slippery entry through the seals!

The ankles take the most time and care. The best dry suits have neoprene seal covers with locking cinch straps that protect the rubber seals from the pressure of the water as well as the damaging UV rays that could cause premature aging of anything rubber! By simply making sure that your rubber ankle seals are higher on your legs and ankles than the neoprene cover and cinch straps, you will have the best protection available to keeping your body toasty warm. We all know that being warm definitely helps us to perform alot better than if we are cold!

After the ankle seals, the wrist seals are much easier. As long as you have already sprayed them with Seal Tech, they will be slippery and it should not be too difficult to gently slide your fingers through until the rubber seals are higher on your wrists than the neoprene cinch straps.

Next, it is time for your head. The less hair, the easier, but not to worry. When you are first using your wakeboard drysuit or barefoot dry suit, have someone help you by opening the neck seal with their two hands while you look up through the opening face first!. After you are through, then you can gently bring through your long flowing hair and adjust the neck seal until it is more comfortable.

Finally, have a friend close the rear zipper until it can be closed no further. This is critical if you want to stay dry. Don't let one of your prankster friends leave it open an inch or you will be less than happy :(

Once you are closed up, you will be warmed up from the effort of getting on your dry suit and that is a great way to get started. As you get in the water, you will notice that you will look like the stay puff marshmallow man because the water will squeeze on the exterior of the drysuit and force the air to the top.

It is tempting to take your wet hand and stick it in the neck seal to release the pressure... Do Not Do This! This will lube-up that sport and create an easier flow of water in that exact area. Instead, grab on the outside drysuit material and simply tug gently below the rubber of your neck seal and let out a little of the air. I prefer not to let it all out or I feel like I have been shrink wrapped!

Another incredible benefit of using a wakeboard drysuit or a barefoot sry suit is that you are able to ski at times when almost everyone else is off the water! What an incredible experience! You have the lake all to yourself!!!!

Imagine how much better you will get if you can practice at times when the lake is semi-private and everyone else is getting fat watching football!
