Triathlon Event  Hi John,
Thank you for contacting!

We totally feel your pain! Wetsuits are an amazing invention for swimming but are not so amazing for dry land use. Instead of us trying to type out directions, we found a fantastic video showing you how to get a wetsuit off without killing yourself. Check it out:

Let us know how it goes!

Be well.
