Nick is getting ready for the big day. We spent the afternoon with a special wetsuit seamstress in Fullerton.
She cut the legs off his old wetsuit, installed 22 inch zips all the way up the side of each leg, and built him a special pair of shorts that are connected to his prosthetic socks to wear under the wetsuit. Now there is no possible way his legs could fall off while diving unless he got eaten by a shark (and that would just be bad luck, dude).
She brainstormed, fitted, customized, and built everything while we waited. The whole process was about three hours.
If you know someone with special needs who would like a wetsuit to get going with water sports, we highly recommend them. New Wave Wetsuits 714-744-1365. They are extremely reasonable… and good!
