Just bought my first wetsuit, any advice on how to dry it after use? Also, what is the best way to wash the wetsuit and how often do you wash?

The LDS had one someone threw in the wash, it not only destroyed the suit it damaged the machines agitator drive :(

Hand was only! Simple Green works but I’m sure the LDS will sell you something else. Hang in shade, the sun will damage it. Store flat, not under your gear.

I use Sink the Stink let soak then air dry. Works great for me !!!

Thanks for the information. I did find some instructions on how to wash in a washing machine as well here:
