> It is a well known fact that rinsing just reduces you TOW for no good
I guess it's time to "come clean"...
I'm a rinser...and I'm married to a rinser...pretty much makes us
rinsers, I reckon...as soon as it is dried, it seems it's time to dip it
in salt water again...prolly doesn't much affect the life of the gear...
I've seen folks just wad their stuff up in the back of a truck until
next use...wetsuits and all...yuck!...we constantly flip our
stuff...but, rinsing sure makes it less problematic to use...so, in
effect, it actually increases our TOW...no stuck parts and sandpapered
gear...and I can see through my windows on the wave face...
