See, I really did need a new suit


Yeah, fairly shredded. The disintegrating lining used to catch on my toes. Not a good thing.

Patagonia’s
working on an ecogroovier wetsuit using recycled materials and wool lining. I’m hoping they’ll have it widely available next year. Right now, the suit is only available in one store, runs over $400 and doesn’t have a hood. I’d spend the extra money to do less harm – like most surf gear, wetsuits spawn from all kinds of toxic goo – but I need a hood and would rather hold out for the improved model than the prototype.
