Wetsuit Trick

So I've been freaking out in my wetsuit, can't stand it, I just want to get out of it as quickly as possible. I'm a good swimmer, so I know it's not water phobia or anything like that, it's the suit. Typically these feelings are the strongest when I'm the farthest from shore.

I don't recall who gave the tip, probably Craig, Ben or Brian, but the tip is: pull your collar open and let some water into the wetsuit. Pretty simple right? Either it works or I'm playing mental head games with myself. It really felt better today during my open water swim, effectively creating a barrier between me and the neoprene. I didn't freak out once today, maybe that's the key and I'm on to something! Until I prove otherwise, problem solved!
