Will my diving surfing wet suit stretch?

Diving surfing wet suits stretch! diving surfing wet suit is made out of neoprene that is a very flexible and stretchy material. So the natural flexibility of diving surfing wet suits is quite big. Then there is stretching when the neoprene gets wet - a dry diving surfing wet suit is tighter than a wet diving surfing wet suit. And finally, I guess this is what you wanted to know - will diving surfing wet suit stretch over time? Like any elastic material the neoprene will loose its flexibility in time. If you take good care of your diving surfing wet suit this will take a year or a few years (depends on how long you use your diving surfing wet suit). If you don't take good care of it, if you leave it in the sun a lot, it will happen faster.

Neoprene will lose the flexibility and its ability to return to the original state after it was stretched. So your diving surfing wet suit will become looser and bigger. This change is not that huge that you should worry about it - like that your diving surfing wet suit will not fit you anymore.
If your diving surfing wet suit is to small and you are wondering if it will stretch. Huh, it will. If you are to big for a diving surfing wet suit you will stretch it. It is hard to tell how much. But this is not the best thing for the diving surfing wet suit because it will speed up the before mentioned process - your diving surfing wet suit becoming less flexible.
