The short answer is if you are currently wasting your time and money on a sport that you’ll try and give up on in short order, then if you buy an e-bay suit that will be less money wasted than if you bought a good suit, wore it a couple times, and quit. If you stick with the sport, you’ll want a name-brand suit. Having said that, I got my first (name brand) suit used off e-bay for $25 and used it for four years.
I see you’re at Lake Stevens. There’s a race at SIMA tomorrow (March 26) and the weather forecast is awesome. Come by, check it out, talk to people, ask questions.
