want to use for surfing. i am around 510 & vary between 170-175 - waist around 34 the sizing between MD & LG is close. what do you suggest Medium or Large?
You did not give the chest measurements. The 2 most important measurements when sizing a suit will always be the waist and chest/bust. Height is a secondary measurement and weight is only useful for tipping the scales one way or another if you are between sizes on the chart. For surfing use, though, you can probably err on the larger size.
Need help re: sizing. chest=38 in, waist=40 in, wt=145. Will be used for snorkeling, but planning to take beginning SCUBA instructions.
This suit says it is not for scuba or snorkel, but is there any particular reason this would not work? I was planning on getting this primarily for warm weather diving.
Suits for diving and snorkeling are assembled more with the thought of efficiently trapping water making it easier for the diver to keep warm. It limits the flow of water through the suit based on how the seams are sewn and glued. They are designed to keep the user warm with a minimal amount of movement. Suits for other water sports such as kayaking, surfing, boarding, etc. are designed with the idea that the user is going to be moving a great deal more and thus generating more heat in the suit. They are not so much designed for extended immersion in the water but rather to help insulate the user as they swim back to their board or watercraft.
