Dear deepblu,

This one I can share with u all.
My wetsuits have 2 holes....what I did was, bring it to the tyre workshop and ask them to tampal for you (not with the one that they 'cucuk & tarik keluar). Not sure what they call it. As long as no more leaking.

mephisto,
you won't get the same end trimming like the ori wetsuit (with the stretchable-like material tubing). what d tailor did was cut off the end, then sew it using the zig-zag machine to ensure that it's still stretchable/expandable. workmanship was gud so no worries there. end result was very neat  8-)

btw, shop closes by 6pm and u wud need to leave your wetsuit for a few days, depending on their load. they get a lot of clients who want to do alterations. u can try on the wetsuit there (got changing room) and instruct them on how short you want it to be
