Every contest that we run, the entries keep getting better and better. With that being said, meet our 7 West Wetsuit Giveaway Finalists.
I plan on traveling coast to coast in my West wetsuits which I love the most. Stayin warm on my moped, getting dope pics at my favorite attractions. I know when I got my West on I’m ready for action. Lookin like a ninja, representing West at the parties I’m crashin’. How you so hot? All the girls be askin’. I’m like I stay webbed up in West’s latest fashions. Even in the arctic sun I be on my board baskin’. Lookin for a penguin to join in my wave ridin passions. Dancing with sharks as the waves keep clappin’. My West’s so warm, I’ll never resort back to urinatin’, unless one of my bros tries clamin’, my favorite West that keeps the homeless dudes askin, with a suit like that, mad change you must be stashin’? I’m like nah just gotta keep the salt water splashin’. In my West I stay warm and never rashin’.
How Do I stay warm in my West wetsuit?
Easy. It is not hard to do as the West wetsuit is one of the warmest suits out there. But to stay super warm, I always take care of my West wetsuit. I rinse it after every session and then let it dry in the garage. Once a week I add a little laundry detergent to the rinse bucket and dunk the West suit, making it all nice and soapy. Then another rinse and hang it to drip dry. I never let it dry in the sun as that would be BAD for the West suit. I never loan it to friends, they can buy their own, and I always keep it ready to rock.
Dusty Shultz / Infinity, Dana Point, CA
My name is Dusty Shultz.
I avid surfer who seems to always remain just a little cold in the water, because of that, wetsuits are a must. However, my wife is pregnant with our second child and due any day now. It’s been 3 years since I have had a new wetsuit, and with the new baby almost here, who knows how long it will be. My current wetsuit is stretched out, has some holes, and gives me horrible rashes from it rubbing me the wrong way. With a new West Wetsuit, I would be one of the luckiest men alive. I would have my second child, and a new wetsuit to keep me warm and rash free.

First and foremost, I have at least 2 West Wetsuits for those days when you do 2+ sessions. In the morning for dawn patrol sessions… Heat some water almost to boiling point. Once it is at that state pour into your "mandatory" after-session-water-containers. Close containers. Wrap wetsuit(s) around containers. The wetsuit rubber will warm up with the hot containers. While all this is being prepared have a couple (better if you have more than a couple) cups of coffee or any other liquid. Once in the water, you will use all the digested liquid for the mandatory pee-in-wetsuit activity. Once done with your session, use the container water to pour thru the West wetsuit neck area. Done!
To stay warm in the chilly waters of New Jersey, all I’ll need is my West wetsuit. With a little bit of fresh water after every session, an attempt at a no piss policy, a good old fashion wide shoulder clothes hanger and the perfect drying tree- my West wetsuit will surely supply a toasty lifetime of sub sea level activities. Not to mention, I’ll wear my West wetsuit to stay warm in the freezing rains of fucking Scranton, Pennsylvania (thank God I graduated from the U of S in less than four weeks). Anyway, f I win this contest I would be incredibly comfortable in the most progressive equipment on the block. In addition I would be recycling that $500 back into the economy, which is good for all of us right! My shop of choice is Barewires Surf and Skate in Long Branch NJ…maybe you know Adam-good dude. Thanks for the good giveaway, maybe keep in mind that I’m an aspiring Surf Traveler whose about to graduate college with a shit ton of loans?
I was in my West wetsuit sitting at the peak at Lowers for 5 hours one day smiling and flirting so the boys would give me a few waves. I got out and some how ended up hiking Mt. Everest putting my West wetsuit on first so I will stay warm, then I put on my snow clothes. Once I reached the top sweating, I ripped off my snow clothes in celebration to Def Leopard screaming, "West Wetsuits Keep You Warm!" Craving waves after a gnarly hike I jumped into a chopper and then skydived down into the best surf from chopper view. While I was getting barreled I said to myself, I love my west wetsuit………then I woke up on the beach and realized I had an awesome action packed dream. I grabbed my West wetsuit laughing with my friends and we all paddled out.
It is not until I hear that last tooth of my West wetsuit’s zipper ::snap:: into its partner, do I know that I am truly ready to take on the cold brutal wind and ocean. For the last two years I have called the Outer Banks home where it is easy to get lost in its incredible beauty and get shacked in the best waves on the East Coast. Occasionally, I need someone to pinch me to make sure I am really awake. Home is where the infamous nor’easter is nothing but the norm and especially in the depths of winter is damaging and often devastating. But during these winters, when the tourists hibernate, the true locals come out to play and only a brave few venture not only onto the frozen beach, but into the bone-chilling A-frames that await. ::Snap:: My West wetsuit is on, armed with fluid seams, poly-pro core insulation, and neoprene pockets for the ultimate in warmth and performance. The only one bone-chilled is the kook who left his West behind. No one and no ocean can stop me. I’ll be getting spit out of barrels knowing I have my West Wetsuits, my balls of steel, and my chick to keep me warm all season long.
That’s how I stay warm.
