Wetsuit Repairs/Alterations

Swell Stuff Wetsuit Repair gets you back in the water with expert repairs and alterations. We help neoprene heal from fin gashes, fingernail nicks, rips, thinning, offtrack zippers, and more. If your new suit doesn’t fit perfectly, have it altered by Lisa Hetman, who has a background in Apparel Design and more than 17 years wetsuit repair expertise.


Any wetsuit up to 5mm thick can be repaired at Swell Stuff.

Turn Around

Please allow 3-7 days for repair. For faster service, there is a $25 rush fee.

Quality Guarantee

All repairs are guaranteed for 6 months with original service receipt.


Most zippers just need a new slider, or to be put back on-track. Teeth that are missing in the middle of the zipper means a whole new zipper. Sometimes a zipper cannot be replaced, so an inspection will determine that.


Want to change a full suit into a shortie, or make your suit more comfortable? We do custom alterations.
