Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

Hi, its the time of year when retailers are making a lot of sales, so the cheaper options for suits will be reduced, but there are still deals out there. The zipperless suits tend to be a little more expensive than the chest zip and certainly the back zip suits. You didn't say what type of suit you ...

Re: Gunge and wetsuits

That was an awfully big pool of slime! That had to be at least a cubic metre of it in there?
Loved the 'glimpses' of the 2XU Blue P2 wetsuit though. It always looked more sexy as 2XU advertised them all shined up....
The newer 'Orange Fizz' version I think is equally good looking.

Re: Gunge and wetsuits

No, I can't say I have.
I've mixed up a litre of J Lube and put that inside a suit, but that cleans up relatively easily.
I think I would be a little concerned about the clean up with a coloured gunge. Sounds like a hose pipe might be needed!

Re: Open-Cell Wetsuits?

You may be right as the link in the tumblr page doesn't work, but a google search found another link.
The Tumblr page is being continually updated though. There are some nice pictures on that page of rubber outfits & wetsuits.

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 ma...

Re: Open-Cell Wetsuits?

I find myself intrigued by the idea. Do you know of any currently available wetsuits that are open-cell inside, smooth-skin outside and one-pieces? I can only find some that fit two of these three criteria, but not all three. Whilst looking on the web, I came across an Australian company that make ...

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 wind...

Re: Wetsuits you're currently lusting after.

Thats a really nice looking suit. Unfortunately the link seems to default to Quiksilver UK for me rather than the QS.au link and its not on their QS.uk wetsuit catalogue.
A shame, but perhaps it will be added as the seasons change. :)

Re: Wetsuit photo meet?

I've just read all the posts in this topic from 2005. It seems there was a certain enthusiasm that sadly fizzled out and it looks like it never happened?
Such a shame as group 'themed' breaks / holidays have the potential to be great fun :(

Re: have you worn your motorcycle leathers in public?

Likewise, I wore my leathers out and about most places, when on my bike, including to the pub for an evening out with friends, although had to stay alcohol free for obvious safety reasons. There were often second glances as it was a white one piece race suit. Unfortunately no longer got that one.

Re: Latex in public

Well that puts 'The Mall' in a new light!

Spookily I went there on Saturday for the first time in many years, but only because I was passing the place.

Its surprising what clandestine activities go on all around us. Long may it continue (as we join in) :wink: .

Re: Latex in public

Wearing a wetsuit out and about (in the right surroundings) is fine, but not gone out in full latex. Perhaps the answer is to start in a more subtle way like the guy in the picture in the link below. That seems more discrete, but equally if not more sexy. https://punkerskinhead.tumblr.com/image/6406...

I completely agree. I can wear them for quite a few hours when up and about, but not to sleep in for very long at all.

Re: Swimming speedsuits

The LZR was probably the most famous of the body suits. It was actually quite sheer and easy to see through with the exception of the screen printed panels. https://www.ausleisure.com.au/images/ausleisure/files/Speedo_LZR_2008_Michael_Phelps.jpg Its was not the only suit of its type and the other ma...
