MAINTAINING YOUR WETSUIT

TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR WETSUIT

- After each dive, remember to thoroughly rinse your wetsuit in cold or lukewarm water as soon as possible. Try to use a rinsing tank in order to limit water consumption.
- Dip your wetsuit into the water, thoroughly rinsing both the interior and exterior.
- Pay special attention to the zipper, as salt residue can easily get stuck in it.
- Hang it to dry on a wide hanger. Be sure to place it away from direct sunlight in order to avoid discolouration, cracks or other damage to the neoprene.
- Once the inside of your wetsuit is dry, turn it inside out to dry the outside. This will help reduce the risk of mould forming.
While cleaning your wetsuit, take the time to inspect it thoroughly in order to identify any possible damage.

                        I’m a neoprene product engineer at Subea. I’m originally from Colombia, and I’ve been diving for the last 5 years. It’s become a real passion: I never miss a single opportunity to enjoy it when I’m travelling! I’m a qualified PADI rescue diver, and have my “Deep” certification.
