My second to last Seventhwave steamer was so good, some turkey broke into our car in a Wellington Parking building and stole it.
Luckily I was able to organize a replacement pronto. That’s lasted me 13 years surfing and windsurfing in Wellington’s gnarly conditions. With windsurfing you have the extra demand of a harness wearing at the suit. By always rinsing it and tending to any chinks caused by fins and the like with wetsuit glue, it’s gone the distance. I figure I’ve now earned a nice new 4/3 Viper Steamer which I hope will not outlast the rest my surfing and windsurfing days."
