Hi everyone. I am participating in an event in August that requires participants to wear a wet suit. I have never swum in a wet suit before, but finally last weekend I purchased an entry level suit from Xterra and took it for a test swim in Grand Traverse Bay, Michigan, USA. I HATED IT. It was too buoyant; I didn't like the sensation of floating on top of the water. I ended up getting sea sick in it and I felt dizzy and it was a miserable experience. I sent the suit back, but I still need a wet suit for my event. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Do i just need to keep practicing and get used to how it feels? The other issue is that I probably will never use a wet suit again, so budget is a concern. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on gear that I won't need again.
