How would you determine which Wakesurf Drysuit, Wakeboard Drysuit and Barefoot Dry Suit is the most durable?
Easy... You beat the "living tar" out of it until you find out what it can handle.
How do you test it?
Drag it on the water at 40 + mph!
Barefoot water skiing is the most demanding and abusive to a
drysuit and that is why we know what materials hold up and which
Imagine subjecting an ordinary drysuit to 40 mph spray and spinning
around on your back and butt. Can you imagine the kind of friction
that would create? We do not have to imagine because we have
tested every material available. All you have to do is have someone
sit on the water in a drysuit and go 40-50 mph about 10 times and
you will have a come-to-Jesus meeting with the truth!
Anyone who has done Dam-to-Dam racing knows this because it is
always cold, rough water, and when no one is looking, everyone
sits on their butts and has the boat go 50mph!
Most suits we tested would begin to fray and fall apart almost
immediately. There is nothing worse than trying to save a little bit
of money only to find out that you may have to buy an entire new drysuit
when you could have had one that would last.
What activities can you do in a
Barefoot International Drysuit?
Wakeboarding, water skiing, barefoot water skiing, wakesurfing, riding
water vehicles, and even kayaking! This is by far the best value of any
drysuit on the market.
What about the drysuit seals? Our new thinner drysuit seals are slightly
THICKER than any other drysuit seals on the planet and therefore keep you
dryer! If you want to stay dryer, then you want thicker seals that keep
water from coming in your neck, wrists, and ankles.
If you have never worn a drysuit then it is important to understand that
if you ski for a short time without falling (10-15 minutes), then you are
going to be completely dry. If you ski for a long time or fall, then you
are going to get a little wet, but at least you are going to be warm because
your body heat is kept in your drysuit.
An extended amount of time in your drysuit will actually keep
you so warm that you will sweat!
Our drysuit is also the only drysuit that has the neoprene overlays
over the wrists, ankles, and neck seals with the
wetsuit synch-locking-straps on the wrists and ankles
which are the first barrier to blocking water from coming in.
The neoprene overlays and wetsuit synch-locking-straps
also prevent the seals from ever seeing the damaging rays of the sun.
This dramatically improves the lifetime of your seals by reduces
wear and tear!
IMPORTANT USER TIP: It is very important to put a protectant on the
inside and outside of the neck, ankle, and wrist seals before and after
every use. This dramatically extends the life of your seals as well as
makes them easier to put on and off.
The reason for putting a protectant on before each use is that it
makes getting in and out of your drysuit a lot easier. The reason
for putting on protectant after each use is to preserve it from
deterioration. Every time you use your drysuit, you will sweat.
If you just hang it up without protectant on the inside and outside
of the seals, then sweat can actually harm the seals and cause some
deterioration if left for an extended period of time.
These are the facts for care for any drysuit.
We also have a great "Replace and Return Service" for our drysuits
seals. It costs about $35 for a wrist or ankle seal, $45 for a
neck seal, and $125 for all the seals. It takes about 2-3 weeks
for turn-around time. Although this is a great service, you should
be motivated to keep the protectant on before and after each use!
There are only two really good protectants. There is Seal Tech
which is a spray bottle, and there is Seal Saver which looks like
an eye-dropper type bottle.
Do not use silicone sprays which are petroleum-based!!! You
need to use pure silicone.
In addition, once a month put wax on the zipper. You can use
our Zip Tech zipper wax but you could also use a crayon or candle.
This will allow the zipper to move more easily back and forth.
How to put on a Wakesurf Drysuit, Wakeboard Drysuit or a Barefoot Dry Suit:
The most difficult part of putting on a
Barefoot International Drysuit is the ankles.
#1 Open the neoprene overlays and wetsuit
#2 push your foot up to but not through to the ankle seal
as if you are putting on a pair of pants
#3 Using your three middle fingers without your nails, reach
deep into the seal and open the ankle seal and then gently
push your foot through the opening.
#4 using the same method, adjust the seal upward above your
ankle so that there is no gap created for the water to come
#5 close the neoprene overlay cuffs and wetsuit
synch-locking-straps so that the water hits them
at least an inch before hitting the seals.
#6 repeat steps #1-5 for the other ankle and wrists.
For the neck seal, get 4 fingers of each hand deep into
the neck seal and gently spread the neck seal as you begin
to pull the seal over your head. It helps to look-up as you
are almost through.
NEVER pull the seals of your drysuit forcefully over
your wrists, ankles, or head.
When taking off the drysuit- Please be Patient :~>);
1. First have someone unzip your drysuit zipper smoothly
without yanking on the zipper. Yanking on the zipper
can kink the zipper.
2. Remove the neck seal by putting four fingers
deep into the seal on both side of your head, lift the
front of the seal over your chin and look down as you
pull the seal over your head.
3. Next, make sure that you first open the wetsuit
synch-locking-straps and open up the neoprene overlay
cuffs wide, and then pull your wrists through gently
4. For the ankles, please be patient. First open the wetsuit
synch-locking-straps and open up the neoprene overlay
cuffs wide. Slide the neoprene overlay cuffs in front of
your foot without pulling your seals off.
Once you have done this on both the wrists and ankles (you
can just gently pull the wrists off), for the ankles, turn the
legs of the suit inside out and pull them all the way down to
your ankles where you can use your thumbs placed deep into
the seal on each side of your ankle bone to push the seals
over your heels.
