Finally got it back as it should be.
The washing liquid (soap) did the trick.
Still I don't understand how they do it so easy in the video.

I was in a hurry and pulled too much in the leg of the wetsuit, a Ripcurl flashbomb 6/5/4.
Stupid and sad but just picking up needle, sewingthread and neoprene glue.
The endresult might not be very nice, but I think it works and will last for a while :)

HI.
Anyone have good tips on how to sew triple-stitch in a circle? I need to resew a valve hole on my leading edge kite that I've converted from standard 9mm dump valve to Cabrinha AirLock valve.

Hi, why would that be a problem? Never tried tho, but the guys in Airush Perth suggested that no sewing does the job.

Hi. Are you referring to my post above or the wetsuit?
