I've got a 5-year+ old O'Neill Solo. Last season it started developing some
cracks in the shoulder area I'm guessing to UV damage. This season, after a
couple of uses--it's getting really bad. It's spread from the top of the
shoulders to the back as well. Pisses me off because I've had other O'Neill
suits that lasted much much longer. That, plus O'Neill changed the Solo
design the following year to use neoprene-2 in those areas (probably because
of this exact problem).
Any tips on how to fix it to last at least this season? I was thinking of
putting the suit on, then smearing a bunch of seam-glue all over the
splitting areas. That and/or maybe some Neorez patches?
