I quite like thin onepiece freediving wetsuits like the Omer W5 below. Only 1.5mm and flexible! But stores here don't have them so no trying on to find my size. :(

Its socially acceptable to walk around like this in France!
Who wants to do a spearfishing course in France (ill bring the lube)
And yes, the tube is smooth skin on the inside!

Is the "tube" attached to the suit?

Reminds me of this suit I saw years ago. It also has a "tube".

This makes me bring a question, Rubberknite is still doing business doing those modifications?, probably i'll buy some HUUB/Orca wetsuits and i wish to modify it for crotch zippers, it's pretty unknown where i can modify it, and cutting neoprene with normal scissors can damage the neoprene ever further.

I don't know if Rubberknite is still in business. He may have moved interstate years ago. But it's worth asking.

Other than that, you could try places that do custom wetsuits or repair centres if they modify existing suits. A local dive shop might be able to point you in the right direction.
