Our 12 year old just completed her PADI referral course and will be doing her open water dives to complete her Junior Certification in Jamaica. For the next few years she will likely just be diving in tropical climates - I would think mainly off of carribean islands. We are trying to decide what type of wetsuit to get her - long or short. My husband thinks short but he is ALWAYS warm (he dove in the Cenotes in Mexico in his shorty and was totally fine) - so, I am thinking he may not know how cold some of us women can get :)
So, I thought I would throw it out here and see what type of. Even though she is 12 she got my genes and is pretty much full grown (looks more like a 16 year old for height). I don't dive so I can't offer any sort of insight on this.
Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks! Too cold.
