    3 days left on this and it has gone well and truly viral!

    Over 326,000 views. Auction price up to £1440.00. XCEL wetsuits are donating a brand new wetsuit to the successful bidder. DryRap are donating a towel which allows you to keep your modesty whilst changing on the beach to the successful bidder. Carve surfing magazine are donating a years free subscription to the successful bidder. And 95% of the winning bid will be donated to the Japanese earthquake/tsunami victims fund.

    God bless the internet.
  9. The thing about viral growth is that it is truly exponential!

    Its now nudging 420,000 views and is up to £7,945!!! :eek:Which is quite a bit for a second hand wetsuit!

    Nice payday for the Charity and will leave him with a tidy profit as well! Well played sir!:drinks

    Indeed. It`ll be the making of him. Watch out for the `celebrity ` appearances that are destined to occur.

    It's now over £100,000. No joke.

    EDIT: sorry Ella - cross posting!

    2nd EDIT: it must've been an error - it's down to £9000 now

    Huh - I wondered if someone made a rather expensive error!! Still, £9,099 is still a lot for a second hand wetsuit.......even if it is free of various substances!

    It's now gone down to £8,800.

    It seems some of the bidders may not be genuine.

  20. I feel we are present at the birth of a meme.

    I've never seen a meme born before. Its humbling!

    So the winning bidder on ebay backed out.

    So in new efforts to raise money for the red cross in Japan the genius that brought us that eBay listing now brings us...

    The massive f*cking raffle

    Got my tickets. Don't know what i'll do with it all if I win. In fairness, I won a packet of biscuits in a raffle recently so it's probably not my time

    It seems our wetsuit friend may have started a trend.

    Here's a guy employing similar tactics to sell his car.
