hello everbody:

I'm new to freediving and the equipment one needs .

I just bought my first freediving wetsuit by picasso and their is nothing else like the fit it has.

One question that i have is that i'm not use of useing lube for getting into this thing. I tried one part "pert' shampoo with conditioner and two part of water. It slides on like you would not believe, but once on and in place it has a tendency if you grab any part of the suit, it move around a little. I think the suit itself is suppose to seal againist your skin. Needs some opinions' and advice. Maybe i should use more water in the mix or conditioner only with water......

One other problem is getting the top off. What is the best way to take it off.

thanks guys. Can't wait to get into the water and try it out.:duh
Hey Garfish... I was talking to Erik on the weekend and he recommended to me a solution of 1 part conditioner for 10 parts water to get rid of that slipping around feeling. It will grip with that ratio. I just got a new picasso suit too. Way better then renting the old scuba suits. It feels like I am in a whole new world again.
