  Buoyancy not drag
  Posted by: Marshall on Dec-31-12 6:02 AM (EST)
 

My guess is that the slow down is added buoyancy from the single body of trapped air in the drysuit compared to the dry top. Are you burping the drysuit prior to paddling? That'll help. The immerse yourself at the launch routine works best.

See you on the water,
