Re: at 57°F (14°C) water temperature you would choose 5/4 or 4/3 wetsuit?

It depends more on the air temperature than the water temperature (up to a point). As kiters, we don't spend a lot of time in the water.

Re: 5/3 steamer recommendations

I have had a Mystic Legend 5/3 for the last 2 years. It has been one of the best wetsuits I have had. I am in to my second winter now, and it is showing it's age with seams starting to go, and the zip not as free as it was. I will get through our winter (Southern hemisphere) before I replace it. I a...

Re: Toeside strapless tips

Switch.

It is much easier on your heels, and much easier to change your feet without the straps.

Re: Is there a minimum wind strength for jumping strapless?

I don't think there is a specific minimum wind speed for jumps (no more than just staying up wind at least). It is definitely easier with stronger winds though - the stronger the better.

Yeah nah. I am no medical practitioner but that sounds like bad advice. If I had done that, I would have at best ended up with a worse hernia and possibly got to see my own intestines.
