Hello, just received two wrist seals for my Pyros. Besides the rather stratospheric price ($50) they came with no instructions at all. How does one install those? The tape provided seems dry ...
Thank you
Davide

Visit: http://www.oceanrodeo.com/drysuits/pyro-pro

You’ll get each and every detail regarding the installation.

That is the Web page for the Pyro, it would be nice to have link to the instructions, not having to navigate through a web site for half/hour and still not finding them ... At $50, for two small pieces of rubber, the instructions should be included in the package, shouldn’t they? 

Since we are at this: can anything else be used to replace the seals?  Eventually the Neck and ankle seals will disintegrate and it would be nice not to have to spend $100 to replace them ...

Hey Davide,

I think what you are looking for is in the Pyro manual located here:

Head to page 12 for details on replacing seals.

Once you have them tuned up you may also want to check this out for reference as well re: trimming for fit:

I assume the dry tape you received is the heat activated adhesive, although I don’t know how to confirm that.

Hopefully that helps!

That is very important to stay dry during surfing and surfer need to wear quality as well as complete suit which cover from hands to foots. I have no more knowledge about suit but know its benefits. If surfer wets then can’t get proper control on kite handle, he may be a proper disturbance.
