Peeing in my Wetsuit?

Posted by Instructor Bill in Confessions of a Scuba Diver

I know, the saying goes like this.  There are two kinds of Scuba Divers: Those that pee in their wetsuits  and those that say they don’t.  Well guess what?  I have never peed in my wetsuit!!!!  Never!!!  Ok, ok you may be saying yeah right, but it is true.  

The idea of my pee touching my skin and then staying inside my wetsuit has never been a priority.  I will take a lie detecter test to prove it.  Even on 1 1/2 hour tech dives I have managed to keep it in my pants so to speak.  

Once I was on a dive with my Brother in law in Mexico wearing my Xcel Polarshield Wetsuit, (the one with the integrated dive hood), and  1/2 hour into the dive I had to pee.  So, I simply told him to wait, removed my BCD at 50 feet, set it down, handed him my mask and proceeded to pull the suit down over my head and down enough to pop out the shrinkage and I peed.  It was on my list of one of the most satisfying releases ever. 

If that isn’t enough to prove my point then please , try me.  I have never peed in my wetsuit.  Am I the only one?

    I have never peed in my wetsuit either. The closest I cam was on a dive trip in Cozumel, so I cut the dive short. That was a bummer, but when you have to go, you have to go… LOL :)
