What To Wear
You don't have to worry about the weather; the experience provider will provide the gear you need to stay warm. All that you need to provide is a bathing suit or shorts to wear underneath the wetsuit. In the spring or fall, the weather can be cool or rainy. If you are worried about staying warm, feel free to bring a layer of synthetic underwear to wear underneath your wetsuit. Don't plan on wearing cotton shirts under a wetsuit. When cotton gets wet, it does not dry fast.
