Tidy up without equipment

To store your neoprene wetsuit, if you have the space, you can fold it in 2 or 3 avoiding putting pressure on it to avoid having neoprene in tension. This requires a place made for with the possibility to put wetsuits.

if you have less space, it is possible to dry the wetsuit on a wall. It is generally recommended to dry your suit by turning it inside out, but in this case, the ideal is to keep it the right way round, to avoid the “inside” part filling up with bacteria when touching other surfaces.
