We are putting some friends of ours niece through open OW class, and need a wetsuit for her. She's only 15, and I'm sure she will outgrow it, so something used and cheap would be best! She's small, at around 4' 10", and maybe 110 lbs. Anybody have anything they've outgrown???

bump??
Anybody?
BTW, I've double checked the size, and she's 4'10", 125lbs.
Probably doesn't help huh....:smiley13:

Thanks Larry, and that is a great deal. I'm thinking she'll need at least a 5mm though. Also, knowing she'll outgrow it in a year or so, I kinda hate to buy new. If nobody has anything laying around we'll probably just rent for the time being. Besides, I'm saving the gift cert for some goodies I'm wanting!

Remind me on Wednsday 11/14/07 when I get to see my wife, to see what we have. (I'll help too...):smiley20:

Have you thought about layering. (two 3mm) to keep her warm? We may have something like that to offer up. Where will she be diving?

Hey, thanks so much! Actually, layering would be ok too. She'll be taking her class and diving here at Table Rock. Water temps during her certs (in May) should be around 68-72.

Heck, $60 bucks is a great deal for new!

Definitely, but a 3 mil just won't do for her.

I have one that might fit. it is a 7mm Body Glove suit. I'd have to look to see the size but I think it is a JR-14, or closeto that. Good condition with maybe only 20 dives on it. What is the water temp at your locaton. What's "cheap"?

Thanks a bunch. Email sent!
Oh, and water temp here is usually 68-80 during the main dive season.
