Re: 24/7 in a wetsuit

Definitely house over hotel. More space, more facilities and easier access to the beach. And avoid going with others who are not into wetsuits or rubber, or it'll end up as a part time thing (as it almost invariably does with my holidays).

Re: 24/7 in a wetsuit

That would be a fun holiday! You could even walk down the street and order takeaway suited up. I haven't gone that far yet, but have walked to and from the beach or pool in a suit. Once I saw someone half suited up with a bodyboard on the bus.

Re: 24/7 in a wetsuit

That and also different suits rather than be trapped inside one forever.

24/7 in a wetsuit

If it was possible and acceptable to be tightly encased in neoprene 24/7, would you do it? Or just wear it here and there?

24 hours in a wetsuit

This is a rather long video. A surfer filmed himself wearing a full wetsuit for 24 hours straight and going about his daily routine in it. The funny and interesting parts include him going to a busy shop, a fast food outlet, surfing, then supermarket. He even slept in it. Problem is his suit stayed ...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

360 degree view of a wet smoothskin suit. It's not typical Yamamoto neoprene, but looks very superhero!

Re: Working from home in gear

Haha, good to hear that it's a start of a good story. Maybe I'll turn it into a fictional piece later on :D. Full suits would be even warmer with more rubber, if I had the time. I've done Zoom meetups with friends in full suits and they like it too :D I'm often hesitant to gear up, but sometimes, yo...

Re: Working from home in gear

A sudden cold snap while working from home had me reaching for warm clothes, I mean wetsuits. I grabbed my Billabong spring suit and squeezed into it. Felt tight and compressed as I haven't worn it for a while. Eventually it softened and moulded to my body while I worked. Either way, I didn't really...

Re: Submit or else

What does Master Greg look like? What does the special wetsuit look like and does it have special abilities? Interesting.

Re: Slime inside your wetsuit

I hear some freedivers use diluted hair conditioner to get into unlined suits, so maybe that could work. It has to be washable and not harmful to the suit. I do have some wetsuit slime from a local dive shop and it looks like skin lotion, but slippery. Gets a wet wetsuit off my ankles real easy, if ...

Re: WETSUIT

Primed for part 2! Here's how I imagine it: Inside the room, Tyler gets strapped lying down onto his surfboard. The boys massage his contours for a while, before they get out more gear. They put matching wetsuit gloves, boots and a hood on him. Then they bring out more suits, gloves and boots and sq...

Re: Wetsuit Facebook groups

Found a few more groups in Australia, mostly to do with rubber, but wetsuits are welcome.

Re: Holidaying in gear (and getting stuck in a wetsuit)

Sounds like a dream holiday to me! Almost! I wished I had more time and opportunities to be in gear. And bring more gear too! I had to decide which of my 2 full suits to bring, other one being my Billabong chest zip that fits tighter. Now I have to wait a long time before I can travel again. Hopefu...

Holidaying in gear (and getting stuck in a wetsuit)

This is a true story, from my last holiday shortly before the lockdown began. It's not as kinky as the other stories, at least on the outside. Knowing this holiday will be the last for a long time, I wasted no time packing my gear. With a swimming pool at the hotel, numerous beaches and a superhero ...
