Can anybody suggest the best wetsuit for kiteing.
I know about many but some are better for kiteing. I want a 5/3 or something in that area.

I would say it depends on the water temperature where you kite. There are many good options at different prices. If the water temperature is cold that it deserves a dry suit, the Ocean Rodeo Pyros are the best around. They are pricey though, so see if the water temperature justifies the price to maximize time on the water.

I've heard great things about the mystics but I use the O'neill Reactor, its nothing amazing just simple warm and comfortable.

Thanks for the reply so far. In the coldest time I use the OR pyro pro, but in the spring I just want to switch to a wetsuit for better movment.
