Used Wettie Conversion

Before you toss that worn out fullsuit into the landfi ll, read on. A couple of years ago, my buddies
Troy and Mike from San Diego showed me how to convert my old wettie into a springsuit and a
set of beer coolers. Basically you just lop off the arms and legs to make a shortie or a sleeveless
fullsuit or whatever. Next, harvest a section of the tight neoprene from the wrist and ankle cuffs to
make insulated beer coolers. In much the same way the rubber keeps you warm in the water, it’ll
also keep your beer deliciously chilled. If you love surfing and beer, I think you’ll agree: There’s no
better afterlife for your retired suit.
