although of your three "waiting, and waiting, and waiting" I only experienced the first. And yes, I was thinking about the sort of situation that you experienced, i.e. what is not much of a problem in practice in flatwater will be magnified in surf after a long day when fatigued. I will try to do as you describe, i.e.skulling to get to set up, next time out. In the past, with a drytop, I could always initiate movement by gyrating my upper body a bit, but with the drysuit, there is a palpable resistance that I had to wait out, just as you describe. It must be the air in the suit that causes it, although I did not notice or feel that there was any air in the suit.
