Re: A wetsuit dream come true..how was your experience with wetsuit meets?

Fun indeed! Looking forward to hearing more adventures. The DHB wetsuit looks great - shiny and rubbery. I had one briefly but didn't fit.

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

It's really up to you. Different? Yes. Discrete? Somewhat. Could probably work at a fancy dress party, but a tight jumpsuit might raise eyebrows. Unless you're actually wearing it in the water, there are other costumes that are cheaper and look similar (just not a wetsuit). Even the shoes look like ...

Re: Thin full wetsuits

Fit and comfort is a personal thing, as I realised today. A local dive shop had the Beuchat Zento (pic below), so I went to try one out. The thinner 2mm smooth neoprene felt supple and a little easier to put on. Basically it was like a thin triathlon suit without the bulk. Unfortunately it didn't fi...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

Great looking suit, but not something I can afford either.

The Poseidon One Suit further up looks more like a jumpsuit or Star Trek uniform. Never seen a wetsuit like that before! Interesting.

Fins and footwear

Who here likes foot fins with wetsuits? Or do you prefer something else, like wetsuit boots? Or just barefoot? I'm usually barefoot in the water, but I also like brightly coloured (or black) fins. I have a yellow/black pair myself. Short fins for bodyboarding and swimming. Not much power, but good f...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

I'm considering getting an Orca TRN. I've always lusted over Orcas, but never seen one so cheap! Anyone got one? http://www.wiggle.co.uk/orca-trn-thermo-wetsuit-wiggle-exclusive/ The blue colour is nicer, but no longer available. :( http://www.wiggle.co.uk/orca-trn-thermo-wetsuit-wiggle-exclusive-bl...

Re: Wetsuits at waterparks and swimming pools

More recently, I tried a wetsuit in a hotel spa (with really strong jets). The spa was toasty warm, so wetsuit wasn't necessary, but it was the only swimming kit I had on me. It was fun floating around in a pool of bubbles and being massaged by jets (you can still feel through the neoprene). Wasn't ...

Re: Layering multiple wetsuits

Wow, I'm impressed! So many suits! That must be intense to be buried in so much neoprene (and the smooth type). I thought I was nuts for trying 3 suits at once, but this is a whole new level.

Hmm, I wonder how many suits can Gordon get on at once. Here's an idea for the next video!

Re: Sport

Wetsuits are essential for any trip to the water. Either surfing, bodyboarding, snorkelling, swimming, waterparks, and maybe jetskiing. Kayaking is an exception (I wear a rash shirt and shorts).

Re: Scuba divers!

Sometimes I wish I could freedive like the video below. Snorkelling on the surface isn't quite the same.

Do you wear anything under your wetsuit?

I'm curious to know what others wear inside their wetsuits (if anything!). I know this question has been asked before, but I've added more options. I normally have nothing under when getting in the water, except for speedos if I need to put on or take off the suit outside. Underwear if I'm just tryi...

Nice suit! It's not often do I see a red suit (or not a black one for that matter).

Re: Wetsuit preferences (by sport)

Haha, I agree. The smooth surface looks and feels sensational. But I also like surf wetsuits because they're even more shiny and black when wet. They're also durable and flexible for many practical uses.
