WTB Used Barefoot Suit (5'9, 165 lbs)

So I tried out my friend's boom for the first time on Sunday. Had a blast but my ***/hip area is not too happy with me... Going to spend some time getting some pointers on the web, and I'm also looking for a cheap barefoot suit - I'm 5'9 165lbs - if you've got anything that would fit that you're looking to get rid of send me an e-mail:
jclorfeine@hotmail.com

Thanks,
Jared

one tip...buy a size smaller than what you think you need.

I'm about the same size as you. I'm wearing an xs Barefoot International suit. Granted, it's tight, but I like it better for tumble and deep water starts.

If you buy a used wetsuit, you've gotta know it's been peed in...
Buyer beware.

Holy Crap.

Did you buy it new when you were your current size? I've seen some people grow and keep their wetsuit and it "stretches" to fit them over time.

Consider getting your self some padded shorts to go along with you barefoot suit purchase. I used my suit for years before I got around to adding a pair a shorts underneath and wished I would have started using both at the same time. You won't regret...

No, I don't do the "Dumb and Dumber", but many are known to do so...

A previous post made a rec for adding padded shorts. Good rec and I'll second.

I bought it new from Seipel. He sized me up for a small....I used it for the day and took it back for an XS. It felt like ply wood until I broken in.

Now, if I used barefoot shorts, it would be a different story. I don't think I'd be able to squeeze into my suit if I had to wear them. But I've never liked them so I opt not to use them.

PS, I've never peed in my suit!

Spleen. I have a Casad one from way back in the late 80's (long sleeve shorty). Neon yellow on the sleeves and neon pink panels on the thighs. Damn sexy. I think it probably smells like Grain Belt Premium (used) and Minn lake water still. I must have peed enough to fill a keg in that thing back in the day.
