has anyone tried the new sporasub tsunami wetsuit? It has a smooth rubber outside and loading pad going from waist to chest. it is a neoprene inside so no lube is needed.
I live in hawaii and will be doing alot of dives near reefs and is wondering if this smooth rubber will cut easily.
im wondering if I should get this suit or picasso apnos (new cut design with camo print), or jb esclapez suit, or excell wetsuit.
I dont really care about camo because I can always put on my own camo. living in tropical water i dont really have to worry about getting to cold either. in fact I am usually pretty warm if not reallly hot in my old 3mm omer camo wetsuit(old pattern). during dives i find myself letting water in my suit to cool off. Mainly getting the wetsuit for protection from jellyfish and sun and too keep relatively warm.
looking for the best deal
would appreciate any info
Does anyone know anything about this suit? I can’t even find a place online that sells it?
Eh save some Kumus for me eh? I hear the Sporasub suits are cooler than the Picasso or Omer 3mm suits. During the summer, I use my Xcel 3mm camo suit, good enough for 4 hour dives. My Picasso 3mm is used for winter (Hawaii have winter? :duh ).

I was also worried about the rubber portions on the sporasub suit. I think the reefs would eat it up in a second. My friend had an xcel suit with rubber on the outside, and it didn't last long for reef dives.

I hear the Hawaii Skin Diver wetsuit is good. Make sure you try them on as they tend to be larger than usual.
