00:00:45 - How wetsuits are supposed to fit

So when you’ve got a wetsuit on, you want to make sure that the arms and legs are just around about the wrist and ankle length as you can see with erin here, perfect size around there. If you want to turn around for me Erin.

00:00:55 - Back of the wet suit

Around the back of the wetsuit, just want to make sure that you were able to grab it, a little bit of room in there so it’s not too tight.

00:01:00 - Around the Arms

And just around the arms here, can you just put you arm up?, just a little bit of room underneath the arms. You don’t want the wetsuit pulling in or being too tight because that might cost rashing.

00:01:09 - Fitting recap

Just a little bit of room under the arms here, length around about the calfs and your ankles and away you go and ready to go.
