Do People Pee in Their Wetsuits to Get Warm?

Quesiton: Is it true ,that to keep warm, surfers or divers pee in their wetsuits? Is there anything wrong with that?

Answer: Urinating in your wetsuit will make you warm, but only temporarily. It’s not necessarily “dirty” or unsanitary, but most people (including yours truly) don’t enjoy being soaked in their own waste fluid. Do it enough and your suit may start to smell a bit if you don’t clean it correctly.

Now, sometimes when you’re out there on the waves it just doesn’t make sense to haul back into the beach to go to the bathroom. It’s like when you’ve been drinking and you’re in a pool; it’s just easier to do your business there.
