+1 to that Dalai, it's sound advice - plus, if you get caught in a rip, you're not far from shore. My wettie definitely gives me more confidence in the water. It's damn near impossible for me to submerge, which means I can pause or goof around without any sinking-stress.
I've tried swimming front-crawl in a 7mm dive suit. It was a joke - so buoyant that I was lying on top of the water!
