Who uses their wetsuits for watersports?

Nope the watersports that involve you going into water, I know what you were thinking!

I sail, windsurf and kayak, so do any of you use them or just admire them?

I used to do sailing, kayaking and coasteering but I don't do it any more.

I have been out recently within the past couple of months in the sea with my orca speedsuit.

Am often out bodyboarding or wakeboarding in them. Or if there are no waves, just to go to the beach in one anyway. Any excuse :)

Scuba, swimming, and kayaking.

Anyone else have to remind themselves not to daydream when doing outdoor activities in a wetsuit? These things are so revealing...

I still remember trying on my wetsuit for sailing and not able to visit the mirror without a reposition or two...

I would love to try a bit of Coasteering but not sure of anywhere near me that does it! I am interested in Sailing too or giving Surfing a try but never been able to do any Watersports since school :(

After more than a year of deliberation and missing auctions, I got myself my first suit this June. I specifically bought it to improve my swimming and arm muscles, so I would fare better at next year's local triathlon *g*.

So, for me it's primarily for swimming. However, the material surface in the crotch area seems to wear out much faster than the rest. :roll:

*Sigh* how time flies. I wanted to make a post about the suit with some pics when it was still new... never gotten around to it. :-/

Edit: removed UTF-8 characters (forum doesn't like them).
