It's so easy, this Big ass baby can practically do it. . .


Use the search function

highlight "search for all terms"

and type in "recycle wetsuits" and hit the search button.

Good ideas from all posts. . .

thanks! I did a search of those exact words and these links didn't show up! Think I need to mess with the parameter settings to get better search results....

Do you have any friends traveling to Mexico? For the past 25 years I've taken my used wetsuits with me and I have always found a fisherman on my first beach walk who really needs and appreciates old wetsuits. Most of them spend time on the water spear-fishing.

Cool on donating it, just dont flood that market with them to the point they are just getting thrown in the ditch every time the new owner comes across a better free one.

Or

Cut the arms off and glue a little round patch on the bottom with some shoegoo or some aqua seal to make a koozie for up to a 32oz can/bottle. You can do the same with the foot/calf area, for a 40oz, or even a 1.75l wine bottle.

All my wetsuits die this way.

If the wetsuit is in fairly good shape, many surf shops have consignment racks that you can recover some cash if sold.

You can also donate to surfing and/or watersports schools and clubs for use with newbies who rarely have their own wetsuits.
