    I also crawl up the last 6m and generally throw in another two-three minutes @ 3m if other people are being picked up. Why wait on the surface if you can wait on the shot or under a bag?

    don't fold it, the neoprene will crease. lay it flat or hang it on a hanger. I leave the zip halfway so if it sticks I can get at the puller more easily.
