How to repair hole in wetsuit with Blackwitch glue and C-Skins patches

Repairing a hole in a wetsuit using Blackwitch and C-Skins repair patches can be done using the following steps:

  1. Clean the area around the hole with water and mild soap. This will help remove any dirt, grime or other debris that might prevent the patch from adhering properly.

  2. Cut the C-Skins repair patch to a size slightly larger than the hole in the wetsuit. This will ensure that the patch covers the entire hole and provides a secure seal.

  3. Apply a small amount of Blackwitch adhesive around the edges of the hole and on the patch using a brush or a spatula. This will help create a strong bond between the wetsuit and the repair patch. Leave it to go tacky for around 1 minute.

  4. Place the C-Skins repair patch over the hole, making sure that it covers the entire area. Press down firmly on the patch to ensure that it adheres properly.

  5. Wait for the Blackwitch adhesive to dry completely. This may take a few hours depending on the temperature and humidity.

  6. Once the adhesive has dried, check the patch for any gaps or areas where it might not be properly sealed. If necessary, apply more Blackwitch adhesive to these areas and wait for it to dry.

  7. Finally, go for a session and enjoy warm suit :)

It's important to note that while this method can effectively repair small holes in a wetsuit, larger tears or rips may require professional repair or even replacement of the wetsuit.
