Black Witch glue has worked well for me. Not used anything else!

Black witch is good for smallish holes etc; dont think it would be too good on anything bigger though

I've always used Aquasure (Aquaseal is the same) and it works well. If it's black neoprene, black witch is probably neater.

Nicks - just use black witch.

Larger holes either patch with neoprene/tape and black witch or sew and black witch

Once open keep it in the fridge. It lasts longer.

I've found a good way of repairing holes in neoprene is by sewing up the hole first using embroidery thread and then gluing both sides using whatever neo glue you have. I repaired the knee of my neoprene shorts a couple of years ago and they're still going strong, and I repaired a hole in a mates deck over a year ago and that's still going too
