Re: Gunge and wetsuits

I had someone say they gunged in a wetsuit a number of times and loved it. It depends on the gunge used. They had no problems with the right gunge. So it pays to be careful

Re: Story ideas

Partially visible latex or wetsuit under street clothing. Long rubber sleeves protruding from a T-shirt with short sleeves, rubber legs protruding from shorts, a rubber body under a half-unbuttoned shirt and the like. I know some rubberists who've done exactly that! One guy went to a convenience st...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

I did send a note to QS UK yesterday to enquire if they would become available over here in due course. I had a note back today to say my query has been pasted on to customer services in QS Europe, who will respond as soon as possible. You never know if they get some more enquiries, a few of them m...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

OMG! that really is nice. Thanks for the extra link. I might have a word with QS in the UK to see if they do exist on this side of the world....you never know unless you ask. O'Neill used to do single lined surf suits some years ago, but they were back zip only. Certainly helped keep the winter win...

Re: Open-Cell Wetsuits?

I don't know if Rubberknite is still in business, as I haven't seen that site for years. Ken (who runs it) has since moved interstate twice and now runs OI Wetsuit Repairs (www.oiwetsuitrepairs.com). Might be worth asking if he does custom suits, but it won't be cheap. The old site is a nice blast f...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

It's not common to find a surf suit that's smoothskin, but this one is not only smoothskin, it has a sophisticated chest zip for a tight enclosure. https://images.boardriders.com/globalGrey/quiksilver-products/all/default/xlarge/eqyw103106_25highlineltdgskinazipgbs,v_xkky_frt1.jpg More great pics he...

Re: Wetsuit photo meet?

If anyone in Aus is going to Slick in June, I know at least a handful of guys who will be wearing their wetsuits out to one of the events. Nice! I'd love to go to Slick with my wetsuits and join you guys, but work is busy at that time. I hear The Laird's Spit and Polish also has rubberists attendin...

Look for local meetups. The rubber events seem quite accomodating and some like wetsuits too.

Re: Have you ever warn horse riding clothes in public?

Nah, too dressy for my liking and too out of place in the city. I liked harness boots for the tough biker look.

Re: Have you ever warn horse riding clothes in public?

Tall boots - only my harness boots. I often tuck my jeans in. I never liked narrow equestrian boots or breeches and never tried them.

Re: Which zipper do you prefer?

I also bought a wetsuit with a chest zipper. It's really a completely different, more comfortable dimension than the zipper at the back or front. And the feeling of closure in the neoprene is more complete. Totally agree! No back zip means the suit moulds and moves with your torso with complete fle...

Re: Have you ever warn horse riding clothes in public?

I wear my RM Williams boots frequently as dress boots, but they're quite common and normal here in Australia, even in the city. So not just for riding horses. One could get ornate cowboy boots at western outfitters, but I almost never see anyone wearing them. Some people think my tall harness boots ...

Re: have you worn your motorcycle leathers in public?

Lots of times. My leathers are quite plain so could be worn anywhere. Works as winter wear, party wear, rain wear or cosplay. I even wear my harness boots as dress shoes in an office. Some of my colleagues do that too. On casual days, I could go full leather. It's a lot of fun when the weather suits...

Re: 24/7 in a wetsuit

This reminds me of a sharehouse full of kinksters putting up an ad for someone to move in. They said wearing your gear around the house or having a sub over licking your boots in the lounge was no problem. A house full of wetsuited people 24/7 would be awesomely fun! Even more so if it had a pool an...
