Putting on a wet wetsuit is the worst.
Having the right gear to help can go a long way. Here are a few options to help you dry your wetsuit after a surf.
Malo'o Portable Drying Rack
Malo'o has a few great racks in their product line. Their Portable Drying Rack allows you to hang a wetsuit and a towel on at the same time given its 2 drying bars.
You can hang the rack on a review mirror or you can buy the suction cup to stick the drying rack to your car or a bathroom wall temporarily and without damaging the surface. The rack's drying bars extend horizontally off of the surface where you tether the rack, so your wetsuit or towel is not touching the surface of your car (for example) which keeps the salt water off of your car.
As drying racks go, Malo'o is pretty great.
