    Noob question: Full body wetsuit or shirt + pants?

    HI all!

    I'm coming back to the PWC world after 10 yrs with a clean FX-1!! I've always ridden with a short sleeves full body wet suit. However i remember it being annoying when you use it at the beach, getting in and out.

    I'm looking to buy a separate neoprene long sleeve t-shirt + neoprene pants, would you recommend this for riding a stand-up jet?

    Thanks in advance, can't wait for the weekend, i'm going to be drinking a whole lot of river water :PP

    For me personally, I like the wetsuit called a “John”. Has the tank top style for the upper part and full coverage for your legs. You can also buy the matching zip up jacket for the John wetsuit for versatility when it’s cold or just wear the John suit when it’s a little warmer. I also like the support from the full suit that it provides as well as protection from wind, sun, old water/weather and other elements.

    I cannot comment on the neoprene shirt and pants as I don’t use these items.

    Hope this helps...

    Hi there. I also use a wetsuit and I think it is the best choice. There is no need to buy a shirt and pants but it is up to you buddy.

    Thanks!

    It's mainly because of getting in and out of it when at the beach. So far the short of it is that a wetsuit is less comfortable, but more effective because the jet stream won't get inside your pants when launching from water, but I'm looking for opinions from people that use shirt and pants to learn about their experience.

    Have you considered riding nude? It's very liberating

    I have an irrational phobia that a piranha will come out of nowhere and take my d**k
