2XU Debuts “Project X” wetsuit

If you are new to triathlon and this is your first season, you have probably wondering about buying a triathlon wetsuit. Many people don’t even realize they need a wetsuit before signing up for their first triathlon. Here are some of the most common mistakes people make when buying a tri wetsuit for the first time.

1. Buying a surf wetsuits – Yes, they are both suits which are designed to protect you from the cold water, but a surf wetsuit is not the same as a triathlon wetsuit. The materials used are quite different and the one created specifically for triathlon is much more flexible and allows you to swim freely. Don’t make the mistake of walking into a sports shop and buying just any wetsuit.

2. Wrong fit – Although similar, most manufacturers have slightly different size charts. You need to know your measurements and check the particular brand’s chart in order to determine which is the right size for you. Remember, when you put your tri wetsuit on it will feel a bit tight, but that is absolutely normal. It will loosen up once you get in the water. Always double check that you can return it if it doesn’t fit well and get a different size. Bare in mind that some models are unisex, but most top brand do have tri wetsuits specifically designed for women.

3. Buying the top model – If you are a novice and need to buy a lot of tri gear, you will soon realize that it is an expensive sport. The most expensive triathlon wetsuit is not going to make much of a difference to your swim split, so you don’t really have to fork out the extra cash. It will probably be wiser to look for winter sales of older models and if you enjoy your first season you can always upgrade later on.

Avoiding these common mistakes you will hopefully end up with an inexpensive tri wetsuit that fits you well, rather than an expensive surf suit that looks cool.

Oneill Heat hooded 6/5/4 Winter Wetsuit 2010/2011 Features

Let’s face it – the task of choosing a triathlon wetsuit can be difficult enough, but once it arrives at your doorstep in all it’s rubbery glory, how should you actually begin using it? What are some changes that will be necessary to your swim stroke or pre-swim and post-swim rituals? These 10 quick tips will help you prepare for using your triathlon wetsuit.

10. Don’t panic. When you first put on a triathlon wetsuit, especially if it’s a new one, you might feel a little claustrophobic and short of breath. Don’t worry…that’s completely normal. After the first few uses, it will loosen up a little bit. Excessive tightness will also be helped with the tip below.

9. Pull the sleeves and wetsuit legs far enough up your arms and legs. Too many triathletes wear a wetsuit like their sweatshirts or pants – pulled all the way down to the bottom of their wrists and the ankles. To allow for adequate freedom of rotation, pull your triathlon wetsuit about an inch or two higher than you would normal clothing, then pull that extra slack that this creates up into the shoulders and the hips.

8. Shave. Yes, this is for you guys, and maybe some of you ladies too. You’ll slide in and out of your triathlon wetsuit much easier if you don’t have all that hairy friction holding you back. Not only does this free up time for more swimming during practice and training, but your race transitions will of course be faster as well.

7. Kick Gently. Some triathletes kick too much in their triathlon wetsuits, while others drive their legs just as forcefully as if they were swimming without a wetsuit. The buoyancy of a wetsuit means that your legs float closer to the surface of the water, and a light flutter kick will propel you just fine. Don’t completely stop kicking, just give yourself a bit of gentle propulsion (from the hips, not the knees!).

6. Wear It. This triathlon wetsuit tip should go without saying, but so many triathletes still wait until the day of the race or even the race itself to actually don the mighty wetsuit, then panic or swim slowly because they just aren’t used to the feeling of the wetsuit. Instead, for at least the final 6 weeks leading up to your race, try and swim at least once a week in your wetsuit. You can wear it in the pool, but just make sure you thoroughly rinse it in fresh water afterward.

5. Bend Your Elbows. Many triathletes put on a wetsuit and feel “stiff” in the arms. In reality, the changes in panel thickness in a triathlon wetsuit will allow you to comfortably bend your arms, and you should have a “high elbow” recovery while swimming in your wetsuit in the same way you do while swimming without one. And the stroke under your body should also have a high elbow bend, not a straight arm.

[p1vc-video]

4. Swim Hard. Many triathletes go for long and easy open water swims in their triathlon wetsuit, without actually pushing themselves to “race pace” intensity. The expansion of the lungs, body heat, and increase in blood vessel size that occurs once you start swimming hard can make a wetsuit feel tight and uncomfortable. If you’re not ready for that feeling during the race, you’re more likely to panic.

3. Practice the Exit. Don’t finish a practice swim in your wetsuit and then ho-hum your way to the beach, shore or car, then take your time exiting your wetsuit. Anytime that I take my wetsuit off, I am hurriedly fumbling the same way that I do during a race, beginning the exit process as soon as my feet hit bottom and I start running upright from the water. I guarantee that practicing the triathlon wetsuit exit will vastly improve your transition times.

2. Vaseline, Body Glide, Pam Cooking Spray or Crisco. You certainly do want to lubricate your extremities with one of these options, so that you can slip in and out of your wetsuit without it “sticking” on your hands and feet, but you’ll also want to put some of that lubricant on the back of your neck, to avoid the annoying neck chafing that can occur with as little as 10 minutes of swimming.

1. Read the Instructions. Nearly all wetsuits come with specific care instructions. If you bought a used triathlon wetsuit, then you can easily find the care instructions on the internet. These instructions are not meant to be glanced at and then discarded. Rinse, clean, dry and properly fold your wetsuit after training and races, and you’ll vastly improve the life of your wetsuit!

HUUB Womens Wetsuit Triathlon Show 2012

Women’s Ironman wetsuit is a part of the products of the Ironman Company, which not only deals in the sales and manufacture of wetsuits and other athletic suits, but also in other merchandise like clothes and watches. These products are sold under the different brands owned by Ironman, or in collaboration with another company. However, Ironman was originally known for fitness and athletic wear, such as wetsuits, triathlon suits, etc. Today, their line of business has widened, but they still have their focus on their high-class wetsuits.

Several companies like Blue Seventy, Aqua Sphere, etc. manufacture wetsuits for women, but a women’s Ironman wetsuit are preferred by many, simply because these are made by the World Triathlon Corporation, the owner and planner of all the Ironman events. The products made by different companies vary in the materials used also in the amount of engineering that goes into its making. The quality of women’s Ironman wetsuit stays the same – excellent. There are several differences between them, such as the material used in the wetsuits production. Some suits give more preference to the calves and thighs for women with stronger legs. Some enhance the arms of the swimmer and provide more durability and flexibility. A women’s Ironman wetsuit considers all these factors before it is manufactured.

[p1vc-video]

Since these triathlon wetsuits are manufactured under the Ironman’s brand name, the quality of material used is high and the companies ensure that a lot of engineering and hard-work goes into its making. Women’s Ironman wetsuits are quite affordable and are extremely attractive as these brands work on the suits’ superficial designs as well. Once these suits are purchased, one can easily see that women’s Ironman wetsuit is definitely worth the extra cash.

During the time of Ironman events, these suits are sold at discounts and the prices come down to nearly half the original cost. This way, amateurs too can purchase this. One professional who purchased an this said that she found many plus points in the suit, she found one negative point. The negative point was that when professionals wore an Ironman wetsuit, it scared of beginners, as one look at the suit was enough to reveal how much of hard-work and engineering had gone into its production.

“Whatever reason or purpose you have for going in the water there is swimwear that you can feel good in and that will suit your needs, including mastectomy swimwear. Regardless of your size, your age or your activity there will be a swimsuit that provides the comfort and coverage you need.” Today there is an excellent variety and wide range of options in specialty swimwear designs. Designs include mastectomy swimwear, maternity swimwear, water aerobic accessories, thermal and sun protective swimwear, wetsuits, sports swimwear, plus sized swimwear, high fashion swimwear and of course the large variety of women’s and men’s swimwear.

Mastectomy swimwear is special swimwear needed for women who have had a breast removed. The swimwear includes a special pocket sewn in to hold the breast prosthesis in place during even the most vigorous of activities. The swimsuits come in a wide variety of designs to include either low or high necklines, wide or thin straps and skirted or saronged styles so your options certainly aren’t limited. A major concern among some women is that the breast forms may be affected by exposure to chlorine from swimming or heats from sunbathing, manufacturers agree this isn’t true. Another concern is that the weight of the prosthesis may be too heavy for a swimsuit. The bathing suits manufactured today are specifically made with the strongest stitching and proper fabrics to ensure not only comfort but also piece of mind.

The maternity swimwear designed today has never been more practical or fashionable. Maternity swimsuits come in both two- piece and one-piece suits. The swimsuits are made with extra lining in the places that need it; most designs have built in soft-cup bras. Tankini designs come in slightly larger belly covering lengths and swimdress suits are available for more coverage. The selections of cover -ups come in both skirt and hooded designs, the skirts are often double lined with elastic waistbands. There are so many great manufacturers offering an endless array of designs and various soft stretchy fabrics that you’re ensured a comfy fit during any stage of pregnancy. There are also wonderful nursing bathing suits on the market, which offer proper post pregnancy belly cover-up with built in bras for use when nursing baby.

Water aerobics is a great all around form of aerobic exercise and an excellent form of cardio fitness. Water aerobics are safe for all ages, as the water causes your body to be buoyant, thus causing less strain and stress on your joints and muscles. Some of the special aerobic water accessories are wrist and ankle weights, active belts, aqua mats, exercise balls, aqua steps, water shoes and barbells. Many of the accessories are covered in neoprene fabric offering comfort to the wearer and chlorine resistance. The active belt is used to promote correct posture while supporting the lower back and toning abdominal muscles. The wrist and ankle weights are used for resistance to get the maximum workout, the cuffs come in various weights for different levels of fitness. It’s a good idea to purchase one of the many sports swimsuits available when doing water aerobics so you’re ensured a swimsuit that will stand up to your exercise routine.

Thermal wear and sun protective swimwear are two popular ways to provide your children with either warmth or protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Thermal wear suits are made from a specially treated, heat reflective neoprene material. The thermal swimsuits allow children to maintain their warmth safely while still allowing for the freedom of movement necessary. The sun protective swimwear manufactured today usually has an SPF of 50 (the highest rating for fabric) and most brands offer approximately a 98% sun block. The suits are made of a nylon-lycra mix, which is lightweight and fast drying. The sunsuits come in a variety of designs to include; baby, children and adult designs; sun hats and sunsuits combined with buoyancy aids. What an excellent way to protect both you’re children and yourself from the sun.

Water Sports swimwear is quite different than the standard swimsuits available for swimming and sunbathing. Water sports such as wakeboarding, wind surfing, surfing, water skiing, diving and jet skiing often require swimwear that offers both warmth and protection from extended time in cold waters. Most wetsuits are made from a specially treated heat reflective neoprene material, which helps people maintain their warmth while providing flexibility and comfort. Wetsuits are available in a wide variety of designs such as; one piece body suits with either long or short sleeves; rash and UV guards (similar to a long or short sleeved t-shirt) with hoods; gloves and boots; wetsuits with hoods. The innovative wetsuits are amazingly flexible and durable providing years of water fun.

Popular manufacturers of sportswear make excellent quality sports swimwear. These swimsuits like the standard swimsuits come in a wide variety of designs, but are specifically made to endure endless hours of activity in the pool, the suits must provide proper fit and comfort in a long lasting design often used by lifeguards and competitors. As much as the look of the swimsuit is important it is secondary to the fit and durability. Sports swimwear can include; competition swimwear, accessories, training suits, lifeguard suits and practice suits. The swimwear is also includes options such as swim caps, warm-ups, parkas and towels.

Proper fit of your swimsuit is essential whether you’re petite, tall or plus sized. You want to be sure that your swimsuit is neither too small nor too large ensuring the swimsuit provides comfort, flexibility and durability. Plus sized swimsuits come in an excellent variety of designs to include one and two pieces suits from tankini suits to skirted suits. Regardless of your size there is a suit that will fit you properly, with swimsuits made in special bra cup sizes while offering extra lining to provide full coverage.

Designer Swimwear is a popular line for many high fashion designers. There is no shortage on the extraordinary styles and options out there. If you are in the market for a swimsuit with that “extra something” you can find swimsuits with lovely hand sewn water drops, crystals and beads. There are swimsuits that with special technology allow you to tan through the suit, there are bust enhancing suits and tummy control suits; there really is no limit to what you can find.

With all the specialty suits mentioned we can’t forget the variety of regular women and men’s suits available. There are styles, colors and fabric designs to fit anyone’s tastes. Swimsuits in one and two- piece varieties for women and the classic swim trunks, shorts and racers for men.

Whatever reason or purpose you have for going in the water there is swimwear that will suit your needs. Regardless of your size, your age or your activity there will be a swimsuit that provides the comfort and coverage you need. If you are planning to be out in the sun always remember to apply proper sunscreen, SPF 30 is a good idea, you also don’t want to forget your sun hats, sunglasses and beach towels.

This article is really about options for you as you consider the various triathlon wetsuit options. Most triathletes that I run into tend to use a wetsuit, when speed and efficiency are considerations. I ran into a gentleman recently who actually reviewed and considered several options before making a move on the Orca 226 Tri Suit.

First of all, once you break around $125, it’s a totally different ballgame than the lower priced gear. There are many manufacturer options, including Zoot, Louis Garneau, 2XU, and his personal choice, the Orca 226 Tri Suit. Many triathletes like the Zoot products, and Louis Garneau has it’s disciples for sure as well. But this triathlete that came out of the water first and that was enough for me.

Here are some considerations:

The Tri Suit does not have pockets, but it does have an 8″ inseam with twin needle hems which provide comfort and reduce chafing of the thighs. The hems also help to keep the bottom section in place and avoid irritation of the skin. The aqua glide fabric helps with faster swimming, and the zippers are engineered for quick transition.

The tri Suit is made for both men and women and there are obviously “modifications” to accommodate both body types. You can find both front zip and rear zip models if you look around a little, and this really comes down to individual preference. If you are not part of a team you will obviously want to consider the front zip option, so that you will not need a partner for suiting up.

Hope this short article helped you get the basics of the considerations, as with any product of this nature, find a reputable retailer so that you can return the suit if necessary and find one that fits. I find most triathletes are buying their gear on the internet now and that there are many reputable retailers that carry these products so that it’s not necessary to find a brick and mortar retailer any longer for this type of purchase.

Happy Triathlon, to your success!

From being one of the oldest and most traditional method of fishing that been around for millennia, spearfishing has evolved to being a weekend sport to one of the most competitive extreme sports in the world. For spearos, nothing is more exciting than catching elusive prey deep under water and rising from the depths of obscurity to meteoric heights of success.

There are many places around the world where one can spearfish. Once you master the techniques and skills needed to be the best spearo, cold water, strong tides and rough seas are no hindrance. Being truly physically fit and an expert at holding your breath under water also ensures you will last long in this sport. However, one thing you cannot do without is essential spear fishing gear and while it can be tempting to grab every piece of equipment you see on the shelf or online, you only actually need very few things to be the best at this hugely-popular sport.

The first and only thing you need to remember when buying spearfishing gear is to buy those that are specifically designed for one-breath diving because they will not only save you money in the long run, they also ensure that you become a spearfishing expert in no time. Hence, the most essential gear for spearfishing would be the following:

Masks

Low volume masks with tempered lens and ones that fit close to the face and offers excellent underwater vision are what manufacturers are focusing on these days and it is also the best type of mask for one-breath diving. To test the quality of your mask, wear it without the straps, making sure it is covering your eyes and nose. Inhale gently and if it stays in place by suction, then you’ve got yourself a great mask, if not it’s time to move on to another shop.

Fins

The fins you buy need to be powerful enough to help you accelerate and cope with strong tides and currents. You can choose between those that fit like shoes or those with adjustable heel straps just make sure they fit perfectly and comfortably especially when you wear diving boots. Too tight and your feet will cramp, too loose and it will fall off under water.

Snorkel

Snorkels are essential as they make sure you can breathe effortlessly under water. Get ones that are made from silicone rubber as these are comfortable and significantly reduce mouth soreness. A snorkel with a large bore measuring 2 cm-2Ncm is recommended for better breathing.

Wetsuits

Nothing is more important than keeping warm under water so a wetsuit with a snug fit, with a hood attached to the jacket and no zippers are recommended. The trousers should also fit well as loose ones will lead to painful rubs.

Weight belts

Weight belts are essential to counteract the buoyancy of your neoprene wetsuit. You should start at the lightest weight and keep adding until you reach neutral buoyancy levels at depths between 3m to 5m. To test your weight belts, dive to a depth of 3m then stop. If you slowly float back to the surface, you’ve got the correct weight.

Other essential spearfishing gear that you need will be your speargun to catch your prey with, floats so you can rest in between hunts and have something to let other boats and fishermen know where you are located and your spearfishing knife so you can cut yourself free in case you get entangled in netting or the ropes. It can also be used to kill and clean your catch after you’re done hunting.

To be a complete success in the realm of spearfishing, you need to familiarize yourself not only with the gear needed but also the local laws concerning spearfishing as it is not generally allowed in some waters around the world. You want to catch fish after all, not the one that gets caught.

To be the best at spearfishing, you need to have the best gear and get your gear only from the best shop. Check out the spearfishing gear at www.spearfishingproducts.com.au and get everything you need at the most affordable prices.

Zone3 Women’s Victory Wetsuit – Presented by SwimShop

[p1vc-video]

If you have wondered about how different women specific sportswear, like a ladies triathlon wetsuit, really is, then you probably have not experienced the great comfort and fit that only these provide to female athletes.

Women’s specific athletic gear today extends from equipment to apparel and is designed with the unique physiology of women and their special requirements in competitions. When wetsuits first appeared, women had no option but to wear men’s wetsuits. These were often ill-fitting, loose and hampered performance. A wetsuit needs to fit snugly over your skin to enable faster movement in water. A ladies triathlon wetsuit was later introduced to help women swimmers reduce the drag of loose fitting suits and glide faster in water. It was found to significantly boost performance and confidence amongst women.

There are several things common between men’s and ladies triathlon wetsuits. They require adequate insulation from water as swimmers will tend to be in water for longer periods of time and the risk of hypothermia could arise. Wetsuits need to have inner and outer layers for insulation. Buoyancy is an important requirement as it reduces the effort put by the swimmer in staying afloat, helping to conserve energy. Many suits use special material like silicone to add buoyancy. This could be very helpful for younger, inexperienced swimmers. The materials used in the wetsuit like neoprene help in abrasion resistance while cutting through water without chaffing the skin.

Similarly both men and ladies triathlon wetsuit are available in different types suited to various different water sport requirements. There are separate suits for surfers and skiers as opposed to swimmers and divers.

However these features in a unisex wetsuit would not give satisfactory performance to a female triathlon athlete. Most women swimmers prefer to change into a ladies triathlon wetsuit before the swim section. This is because these wetsuits have several women-specific features like lower neck-lines, wider hip areas, slimmer arms and neck arm and ankle openings, adequate contouring for bust and torso along with extra insulation in areas that are more prone to cold.

You should not pick out a ladies triathlon wetsuit without trying it on first. The suit must stretch comfortably over your hips and bust area and fit snugly around joints. Although size charts help narrow down your wetsuit, they may not be very accurate estimates of your own body shape. Woman-specific wetsuits also take into account the uneven distribution of material, less material at the waist and genital areas and extra material in the bust area, for women.

Unless you are shaped like a man, wide shoulders and narrow hips or are bigger than what the largest woman’s wetsuit can accommodate, you should not opt for men’s wetsuits. Make sure you look through several varieties and brands before selecting the best Ladies Triathlon Wetsuit [triathlonwetsuitreview.org/features-of-womens-triathlon-wetsuit/a-wetsuit-that-fits-great/] for you.

Scuba Diving Legends – women in wetsuits atlantis

Choosing a women’s triathlon wetsuit that best suits the wearer would ensure that the woman enters the competition arena with a huge boost in her self-confidence. There are various aspects that need to be looked into before zeroing-in on the right outfit.

A comfortable and well-fitting outfit builds confidence in a person in any competitive field. Selecting the right type of women’s triathlon wetsuit ensures that the athlete enters the competition zone with a winning streak. A wetsuit should essentially help speed up the wearer’s progress in a contest by meeting a list of criteria. Initially, wetsuits were only designed for men, but lately companies have started catering to women too.

Given below is a list of factors that need to be considered during the process of selecting the right kind of women’s triathlon wetsuit:

1. Proper fit and look – The wetsuit should fit properly in order to give a desired level of comfort to the wearer. The fitting around the thighs, shoulders, arms, chest and neck should be looked into very carefully. The look of a wetsuit is of no scientific importance except for the fact that it is a great confidence booster.

2. Body temperature control – The main purpose of a wetsuit is to regulate the body temperature and keep it desirably warm during the wearer’s stint in water. The rubber material traps a small layer of water close to the skin that gets warm by body heat, thereby delaying hypothermia in very cold water.

3. Buoyancy – When opting for a women’s triathlon wetsuit, the buoyancy factor must be understood properly. Usually a good wetsuit varies in thickness of the rubber material throughout its length and width. The material around shoulder and arms are thinner and flexible for faster mobility while the chest and leg regions have thicker material for more buoyancy. The buoyancy helps the tri-athlete to float above the water. The suit needs to be stretchable too to facilitate movement of arms and legs.

4. Tight sealing – The right kind of women’s triathlon wetsuit must ensure that water does not enter into the suit. This can only be possible if the neck is properly tailored so that the wetsuit can seal water-entry without choking or rubbing against the skin of the athlete.

5. Zippers – Though zippers in a wetsuit helps quick exit from the suit at the end of the swim round, thus saving valuable time, yet the negative point is that zippers work against the body temperature and tight-sealing features of the suit. Care should be taken in checking the number of zippers in a wetsuit.

Even though wearing of wetsuits in competitions is still a controversial issue, yet a triathlon contestant will definitely gain confidence if allowed to wear a Women’s Triathlon Wetsuit [triathlonwetsuitreview.org/features-of-womens-triathlon-wetsuit/] during the swimming round of the competition.

Women XSPAN Wetsuits by NeoSport

[p1vc-video]

If you are one of the female athletes entering triathlon events then you may want to go through a women’s triathlon wetsuit review so as to know why you need a triathlon wetsuit. Well, triathlon is an athletic event that includes swimming, running, and cycling. Many triathlon events are conducted in the open. The coldness of the open waters is one of the reasons why using a wetsuit is advocated whether you are a man or a woman. In any water colder than 78 degrees Fahrenheit, wearing a wetsuit is advised and in many events it is compulsory.

One of the greatest advantages of a wetsuit is the added buoyancy that these suits offer. The high quality suits are made of good neoprene rubber, which provides buoyancy thus making it easier to swim and float on water. As you can understand from the women’s triathlon wetsuit review, these wetsuits help you glide over the water using less energy than what would be needed were you not wearing the suits. The suits are also designed to improve your swimming technique. This does not mean your suit will do your work for you, just that it will give you an edge.

Another consideration for you to start looking at any women’s triathlon wetsuit review that you can get your hand on is the added dexterity that the triathlon wetsuits provide. The suit is designed in such a way that you will have more freedom and flexibility of movement. They also reduce the drag which you usually feel while swimming, thus improving your speed.

This does not mean that you could go for any wetsuit that you can find. There are different types and brands of these wetsuits. Some are sleeveless which makes it easy for you to get out of them, while others are full sleeved and give you better buoyancy, less drag, and more warmth. You could get more information on their benefits by reading up on the brand’s women’s triathlon wetsuit review.

There are different categories as well. For beginners and people who do not want to spend too much on wetsuits, the Category 1 wetsuit may be the best. It gives you basic functionality.

Orca Alpha Wetsuit

Provided your suit fits you well and is of good quality without any damages, it is safe enough to buy your wetsuit from a triathlon wetsuit clearance sale. And it would definitely be cheaper.

A triathlon wetsuit from a triathlon wetsuit clearance sale would cost you less. The question is whether it would be safe to buy such suits?

Sure, you need a good quality wetsuit if you want to make good time during the swimming stage of your triathlon. You need your wetsuit to be comfortable, have good quality rubber so that it gives you buoyancy, and be shaped so as to assist your swimming rather than hinder it. It should be light but thick enough to protect you from the cool water which usually features in triathlon events since the races are usually conducted in open water. It should also let you move your arms and legs freely and give you flexibility and dexterity. Do triathlon wetsuit clearance sale pieces contain all these qualities, is your million dollar (or $300) question.

As a matter of fact it would be possible to get your wetsuit from a triathlon wetsuit clearance sale provided you are careful (which you would need to be even if you are not buying on clearance). You should take the time out to examine the wetsuits closely for any damages. You should also wear the wetsuit and see if it fits snugly and comfortably but not too tightly. The parts at the armholes and leg holes should be snug enough not to let water in or to cause a drag. Make sure that your neckline is not suffocating. Moreover, if you want, you could also make sure that you would be able to slip in and out of your wetsuit easily. If the particular piece has all these qualities then what matters if the piece is last year’s and comes from a triathlon wetsuit clearance sale.

In fact you may luck out and be able to get a top piece of previous years at a bargain price. Yes, the latest suit will have all the latest gizmos, technologies, and works, but even the last year’s suits would be of excellent quality. The only difference would be that they are not the latest. Also, after a certain level, the technology and design addition can help you only so much. Hence even if you buy a triathlon wetsuit clearance piece of good quality it would serve you quite as well as a good quality piece that was not bought on sale. Since most swimmers use triathlon wetsuits for more than a year you wouldn’t be that behind others either.

As long as you get a suit which fits well, is comfortable, has good quality rubber and neoprene, isn’t damaged or torn, and gives you freedom of movement, you could buy a Triathlon Wetsuit Clearance [triathlonwetsuitreview.org/find-what-you-want-at-the-triathlon-wetsuit-sale/] piece without any safety risks or disadvantages. It would save you money.

The Orca Men’s Alpha Fullsleeve Wetsuit 2010 offers wetsuit swimming like you’ve never experienced before. The Nano SCS coating generates increased speed and buoyancy. You get amazing flexibility, fit and comofrt from the 1.5mm Yamamoto #40 Cell neoprene, which has been shaped for maximum stretch across 100% of the wetsuit.

At the heart of Orca Men’s Alpha Fullsleeve Wetsuit 2010 is the FreeStroke 3 System, which comprises of three unique 1.5mm panels, each designed to address a key area of the stroke phase. The seamless FreeWing panel runs from the lateral area, through the underarm and across the chest for incredible reach through the entry and catch phase of the stroke. During the pull-through phase of the stroke the FreeFlex back panel allows the trapezius and latissimus muscles to work unhindered, driving you through the water. The FreeFly arm panel is integral in limiting resistance on the deltoids, reducing the effort required in the recovery phase of the stroke.

Meanwhile, what lies beneath is just as important with the 4 Way Free Stretch lining providing even more stretch and comfort. Panels of Yamamoto AeroDome neoprene have been placed on the front and rear of the torso, generating 30% more buoyancy.

The Orca Men’s Alpha Fullsleeve Wetsuit 2010 also features Orca’s new AquaTread forearm panel. 3mm neoprene has been pressed into a tire tread-like surface, to grab at the water. The panel has also been molded to increase the water catchment area, increasing power with each stroke.

Balancing buoyancy with flexibility, the 3mm Core Xtension sector is used across the chest to allow for full body rotation and reach through each stroke. It doesn’t get any better than this. Orca Alpha-first in technology, first out of the water. You can find the Orca Men’s Alpha Fullsleeve Wetsuit 2010 here at OneTri.com.

“As for my own surfing, let’s just say that when the waves start pushing 10 feet, I get this tremendous urge to make a sandwich.”

Bruce Jenkins, North Shore Chronicles

Anyone who’s ever sat slack-jawed in front of their computer screen after typing Big Wave Riding on YouTube will appreciate Mr. Jenkins’ sentiments. Indeed, there are some mind-numbingly gigantic waves out there; and for every ten thousand surfers who head for the breadbox, there’s at least one who heads for the beach. These lunatics make names for themselves (sometimes posthumously) by being towed by jet-ski into some of the freakiest breaks on God’s blue earth. Even non-surfers have heard of the places these daredevils go to test their mettle. The deep swells roaring onto Hawaii’s shallow reefs and lava rock formations have turned places like Jaws, Pipeline and Waimea into the stuff of legends; Near Half Moon Bay, Mavericks in Southern California is a frigid 30-foot monster and home to Quicksilver’s annual group suicide attempt known as the Big Wave Competition; the remote Teahupo in Tahiti brags some of the thickest swells on the planet and Australia’s East Coast proudly boasts some amazing places to die on a surfboard. But sometimes places like Mavericks are enjoying moderate 20-footers while the world’s true monster waves are lurking over 100 miles off the coast of San Diego. It’s called the Cortes Banks – an eerie patch of ocean where a subterranean mountain range peaks just 3-6 feet below the surface. Discovered by deranged surfers in the early nineties, this anomaly can produce swells the size of apartment buildings with wave-faces as high as 70 feet.

But we’re betting that you value your life. In fact even seasoned surfers wet themselves a little bit when these locations are uttered; like Mr. Jenkins, most of us would rather make a sandwich than take on a billion tons of angry saltwater with nothing but a piece of fibreglass-coated Styrofoam. This is why places like Vancouver Island’s west coast are so popular. Because here, your kids can splash around on boogie boards while you paddle out to manageably large sets. And while they can be both challenging and thrilling rides, you’re not really flipping the bird at Mother Nature nor will your kids be left orphans on the beach. In fact, come the right time of year, Long Beach, the 20 kilometre stretch between the Vancouver Island towns of Ucluelet and Tofino can produce some fantastic big waves. And you don’t need a jet-ski tow-in or an updated will-and-testament to make it worthwhile.

First, let’s give credit where it’s due: the Gulf of Alaska, venerable birthplace of the storms that generate the waves which eventually find their way to the British Columbia coastline from late September to March. The Alaskan Panhandle also generates a lot of the bigger solid running swells that bang against our beaches as well. It’s not just BC’s northern Yankee neighbours we have to thank, either. Second only to sushi as a favourite Japanese export, the delicious waves generated from storms off the coast of Japan travel across the Pacific with ease before smacking into Western Canada. Even the Southern Hemisphere’s storm waves would join the party if they weren’t apprehended at Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula before they reached the BC coastline. What can you do? American border-control…

The best waves on Long Beach can be found November through March, aka winter. But before you envision parka wetsuits and neoprene mukluks, it bears mentioning that Vancouver Island enjoys one of the most temperate climates in the country. Winter here usually means rain at worst, which can make for quite a surreal experience when combined with the perpetual fog that laces this coastline most of the season. What’s important to remember is that the water fluctuates between 7 and 14 degrees Celsius so a hood, gloves and boots aren’t a suggestion – they’re a pre-requisite. Renting the necessary gear can be difficult when the big sets start rolling in. Local outfitters are naturally reticent to rent you a board that may A) come back in several pieces or B) disappear along with the defiantly cavalier tourist who thinks his puka shell necklace and Bermuda shorts are all he needs to go toe-to-toe with King Neptune. If you’re ready to ride the big stuff, chances are you own your own hardware. And in these waters, that hardware should be Shaquille O’Neil size (6’8″ to 8′) for your best chances.

This is also one of the most picturesque surfing destinations in the world. With jagged coastlines, sandy beaches and lush, mist-shrouded forests, Vancouver Island’s west coast looks more like a scene from a fantasy movie than anything else – if of course, the fantasy movie had wicked big waves. The functional beauty of this place is its accessibility. While Tahiti might boast bigger waves and a better climate, Long Beach is just a short 4-hour drive from the province’s capital city of Victoria, 2 hours from Nanaimo and not much further from Vancouver and the Mainland.

While Long Beach and vicinity is home to the largest waves on Vancouver Island, the Lower Island has several other favourite surfs spots that are worth visiting and definitely deserve mentioning. Jordan River is located in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park and is home to Jordan River Surf Club, a friendly group of locals who are always more than happy to introduce etiquette-abiding visitors to their waves. Caveat: Jordan River’s waves only manifest during one tide and only then with specific winds and swell direction. Although conditions here can be as unpredictable as Lindsay Lohan’s career, when they’re good they’re really good, providing some of the longest rides on the Island. For your best chances, check out The Point, Rock Piles and Sewers. Thirty kilometres further north, you’ll find Sombrio Beach. Like Long Beach, the waves here are small to average unless helped along by a friendly winter storm. But it’s the idyllic surroundings that make Sombrio so appealing. A favourite destination with individuals looking to connect with nature, you’re just as likely to run into an amiable hippy squatter or an outdoor yoga class as you are to run into another surfer.

But for many, size really does matter. And despite the magical little bays, heads, coves and beaches that pepper Vancouver Island’s west coast, Long Beach definitely stands as the number one place to go for sheer magnitude. Rain or shine, winters here can produce waves anywhere between 12 and 16 feet not to mention 2 gorgeous little seaside towns to explore when you’re done hitting the waves for the day. This truly is Canada’s big wave mecca.

Sure, it’s no Waimea Bay; it’s no Mavericks, but let’s get real for a second – you’re on vacation, not on a pro tour. Come conquer British Columbia first.

Cortes Banks isn’t going anywhere.

A Guide To Putting On A Chest Zip And Back Zip Wetsuit

[p1vc-video]

Even if you are not an avid kayaker, or into any kind of water sports, chances are that you are somewhat familiar with the synthetic rubber known as neoprene. There are many products made from neoprene that touch our daily lives, including bags, shoulder straps, cushions, and even mouse pads. However, if you have a particular interest in water sports such as scuba diving or kayaking, neoprene takes on additional significance.

Kayakers and divers alike often rely on neoprene wetsuits, boots, and gloves. For example, a kayaker may wear a wetsuit in order to protect himself or herself from from cold water temperatures. Even though kayakers are normally out of the water while kayaking, a wetsuit can keep the kayaker safe in case of capsize. Also, some kayakers like to practice rolling, which is a maneuver that can be used to upright a capsized kayak. Kayakers may be submerged in cold water repeatedly when practicing rolling, so a wetsuit or other exposure protection is crucial.

A neoprene wetsuit works by trapping a thin layer of water between the inner surface of the wetsuit and the skin of the wearer. Since only a thin layer of water is trapped, it does not move easily and is quickly warmed by the person’s body heat. Neoprene is a great material for making wetsuits because it is flexible so that it conforms to the wearer’s skin, for example, around the wrists and ankles where water might otherwise get in. Neoprene also does not allow water to pass through it easily. Thus, the thin layer of water remains relatively trapped inside the wetsuit. Even though the goal of a wetsuit is to keep the layer of water mostly trapped, neoprene wetsuits still do let water in, especially if the person wearing the wetsuit is moving around while submerged in the water. If the water is cold, water flowing into the wetsuit can usually be felt as a chill.

Kayakers also benefit from using neoprene boots, gloves, and pogies. Neoprene boots are useful even if the water is not cold because they can protect the feet from sharp rocks and shells. For instance, when a paddler is launching his or her kayak, he or she may have to wade in the water while guiding the kayak away from the shore. Neoprene is an excellent choice of material for kayaking footwear because it is waterproof, durable, and has excellent insulating properties. Neoprene gloves and pogies are used for keeping a kayaker’s hands warm while paddling. Paddling gloves are often made from more comfortable materials than neoprene, but neoprene is still a safe bet if the water is extra cold. Pogies are more like mittens than gloves, and can be described as a flexible covering for the hands that also accommodates the paddle shaft. This allows the kayaker’s hands to stay covered while the hands keep a direct grip on the paddle.

So if you are headed out onto the cold water on your kayak this weekend, squeeze into your wetsuit, put on your gloves, and remember how much you appreciate being encased in neoprene.

Surfing and the environment
Surfing and other water sports are some of the most exhilarating and rewarding activities on the planet. There are few sports that are so connected and dependent on the environment as surfing. And it’s no big secret that one of the most natural sports ironically has a different side. The equipment that surfers use, mainly a wetsuit and surfboard, are constructed from man made materials that are highly toxic in nature.

Wetsuits
Not until the 1950’s was the cold water wetsuit born in Northern California USA. Jack O’Neill, a surfer who declared he just wanted to surf longer in colder temperatures designed and developed the first neoprene wetsuits as we know it. Neoprene is the core construction of wetsuits and the material is an oil based synthetic rubber. This form is formed with very small layers of bubbles that are filled with nitrogen gas and sealed. The combination of synthetic rubber and nitrogen layered bubbles posses very high thermal and insulation properties and are the foundations of the modern wetsuit.

Latest advancements in wetsuit technology
Neoprene has come along way since it’s invention in California. Synthetic rubber alone is a very good insulator with high thermal properties however the down side of this was it’s lack of flexibility and robustness. It was common place for early wetsuit to tare and ripe when taking them on and off. The problem was finding a balance between optimum warmth and comfort and flexibility. Technology progressed by combining the synthetic rubber with other materials such as spandex or lycra to provide a more supple and stretchy material that would be easier to put on and off but also make the neoprene stronger, providing less restriction to the user. As new materials are found and tested neoprene is reaching unparalleled levels of flex. manufacturers are utilising panelling more and more with the design allowing for different composites of neoprene to be positioned were required. For instance the more flexible lighter weight neoprene is located at the arms, shoulders and legs where are the thicker, heavier neoprene is located at the front and back body area’s to minimise heat loss.

Where is wetsuit technology heading
This winter (2010/2011) sees the highly anticipated release of O’Neill’s Psycho RG8 series of wetsuits. Many years of research and development have been invested into the recycling of neoprene and plastics. The aim of O’Neill with a number of outside partners was to reduce and re-use as much waste product as possible without compromising performance. With between 30-40% of wetsuit neoprene never leaving the factory and discarded as waste it’s clear that not only the materials but the manufacturing processes are not environmentally sound. The main aim of this program was to regenerate old neoprene and used plastic to produce first grade neoprene. Named ‘Ultraflex RG8′, a limestone based neoprene with recycled plastics on the inner and outer layers this surely is not just a jump on the environmental bandwagon but a step in the right direction for an industry based on highly toxic materials.

Quiksilver first came into being in the 1970s as a boardshorts company in Torquay, Australia. It was founded by Alan Green after he and two of his friends, Carol McDonald and Tim Davis got to develop better boardshorts. They were mat with success and soon started exporting to Hawaii. In 1976 Jeff Heckman got a Quicksilver license and together with Bob McKnight, the current CEO of Quicksilver, started Quicksilver USA based out of Newport Beach. In 2002, Quiksilver came up with a ground-breaking new design for a wetsuit called “The Cell” which is perfect for surfing no matter what the water temperature is. The Quiksilver wetsuits are known for their unique design, flexibility and lightness. There are several popular Quiksilver wetsuits. The Quiksilver Cypher series has got high quality fibre-lite neoprene, Biofleece thermal neoprene for mid body warmth and excellent seam sealing. The Quiksilver Synchro series comes with 100% Hyperstretch II neoprene, Chest panels with vaporstretch mesh and lined with HFT heating system, neck which is hydrowrap adjustable, ectoflex kneepads and an external key pocket.

Quiksilver has also got a 3mm long john which is a combination of 70% glideskin and 30% neostretch.

Rip Curl wetsuits are known for their Elastomax and Slickskin technologies. In 1969 Doug Warbick and Brian Singer named their new surf shop, Rip Curl. At the time Australia was buzzing with the “short board” revolution and a general air of innovation and improvement in the surf industry prevailed. Initially, the two concentrated on surfboards and were met with reasonable success. However, they soon realized that this market was more or less saturated and what was really required by surfers was better wetsuits. So they turned their minds to producing unique Rip Curl wetsuits. Today Rip Curl licenses are held by nine corporate to produce and sell Rip Curl items in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, France, South Africa and several places in South America and Asia. Rip Curl wetsuits include the H-Bomb power heated wetsuit which has feature such as E3 Neoprene, thinner and lighter Fireskin lining, S-Flex knees, chest zip, double Aquaban liquid tape to improve flexibility and durability and an external stash pocket. One of their classic models is the Dawn patrol steamer. This has again got E3 Neoprene, S-Flex knees and Fireskin lining. Additionally, it is ultra light and has got seamless underarms.

Neoprene is used in many types of paddlesports gear — wetsuits, booties, sprayskirts and wetsocks, to name a few. Since it’s usually covered by fabric, it’s pretty tough stuff, but wear and tear takes its toll. In this video, we show how to repair neoprene when it gets damaged. Don’t throw that gear away; fix it!

Neoprene Types Explained – Wetsuit Wearhouse Video Series – Wetsuit FAQ

[p1vc-video]

When it comes to triathlon wear , there is a wide variety of options on the market. For triathletes, the difference in attire is truly a personal choice.

Although some teams may mandate specific uniforms, the sport is generally individual, allowing each participant to choose his or her desired outfit.
When it comes to triathlon wear , the traditional material is neoprene, the same type used in wetsuits.
This is generally due to chilly water temperatures that can cause you to lose valuable time due to cold shock.

Furthermore, using a wet suit for your triathlon suit allows you to use the item for other sports, including scuba diving or surfing.

There are three main items in triathlon wear : full, sleeveless, and two-piece suits.

Again, the choice is purely personal, as each different competitor enjoys a the feel, protection, and mobility of different suits.
The full suit is a one piece suit that covers arms and legs.
This suit is the best multisport suit and can complete cover the arms and legs completely or only cover the legs to the knees and the arms to the elbows.
Sleeveless suits are a one piece suit that stops coverage at the shoulders, but continues to cover the legs to either the knees or the ankles.
Finally, two-piece suits employ mix and match system for triathlon clothes that can include long or short bottoms with long tops, short tops, or no tops at all.

If you are interested in purchasing a multisport suit, consider the difference in the neoprene.
Suits made for surfing, kayaking, or diving are made from thicker, less movable neoprene that may not be flexible enough for the demanding sport of a triathlon.
Like other clothes , choose a suit that is in the middle of the road to ensure the most usefulness.

The type of neoprene used impacts flexibility, and there are tons of trade names and grades of neoprenes used in today’s wetsuits. To simplify complicated trade names, we divide the suits up into certain percent ratings for their stretch. The neoprene types are basically broken down into standard neoprene and super stretch neoprene. In order to offer wetsuits at different price levels, manufacturers use varying degrees of these neoprene types. For surfing, you need at least 30% stretch in your suit. Seasoned surfers prefer wetsuits with 60% or 100% super stretch neoprene for the ultimate level of flexibility and a glove like fit. Standard neoprene suits feature no super stretch. While these suits are very durable, they do not have the needed stretch that many users will want for their sport. These suits are typically the least expensive. 30% Stretch equals the back, shoulders, and arms which is exactly where you need flexibility for sports such as surfing. The other 70% of the suit is made of standard neoprene. 50% Stretch extends down to the waist and covers all upper body flex points. These wetsuits are typically lighter and tend to fit better. 60% Stretch extends down to the knees, and covers every major flex point. 100% Stretch wetsuits are ideal if they are within your price range. These wetsuits provide the ultimate combination of fit and flexibility while decreasing bulk. You may also see neoprene referred to as water repellant neoprene. This is always super stretch neoprene and is a special tight weave which is treated to repel water, similar to RainX. This results in a suit which is drier, and as a result, lighter.

Spandex is one of the revolutionary materials discovered in the 20th century. It was first discovered in 1959 by the chemist Joseph Shivers at the DuPont’s Benger Laboratory. The word spandex is an anagram of the word ‘expands’. Spandex is the preferred name in the United States and is known as Lycra and elastane in Europe and other parts on the world. Spandex is a great substitute for rubber in clothing since it can take more stress and tension and then return to its original shape. Clothes made from spandex are more comfortable even though they are tight. It is much lighter than natural rubber and also easier on the skin.

There are four different methods to produce spandex. Of these the dry spinning method is used to produce over 94% of the spandex fibers created in the world. Spandex has come and gone out of fashion over the years in various forms. For example, spandex jeans were very popular in the 1980’s. Spandex has been the material of choice for sport garments since its discovery. Here are some of the major uses of spandex.

• Swimsuits
• Wetsuits
• Competitive Swimwear
• Gloves
• Leggings
• Hosiery
• Bra Straps
• Socks
• Diapers
• Belts
• Underwear
• Surgical hose
• Cycling shorts
• Wrestling Suits
• Rowing Unisuits
• Volleyball and Netball Suits
• Furniture coverings
• Specialized shape garments like Zentai suits and Motion Capture suits.

Spandex is quite popular in science fiction as well. Characters from comic books are all dressed in spandex costumes. Spandex was thought to be the material of the future and so all stories and comics featuring future storylines dressed their characters in spandex garments.

The versatility and strength of this fabric means it can be used for a variety of purposes. One of the most common applications of this material is exercise shorts. They are probably popular because they allow the body to breath and the muscles to expand and contract during the workout. Another reason is probably because it allows you observe the muscle during the workout and get egged on by the sight of it.

When choosing spandex garments there are few things you need to keep in mind. First is the purpose of the garment. For example, if you are looking for a pair of running pants then you need to decide between the tight and loose variety. The tight ones are great for cold days and short runs as they keep you warm while the more baggy variety is great for warm and mild days.

GLR gets all sticky with the Black Witch wetsuit repair glue. Good stuff, just make sure you get your suit super clean, dry and salt free before you fix it. I find it works better if it’s at room temperature. Top Tip – Leave it plenty of time to set up before you stick the edges together and don’t use too much or it takes ages to dry!

Bare 7mm Sport Wetsuit for Men and Women – PleasureSports.com

After each race and especially during the off season, your triathlon wetsuit needs a bit of care and attention. After all, triathlon wetsuits are not cheap and you can easily use yours one for a few seasons if you look after it.

When it comes to tri wetsuit care there are 3 simple things you need to remember:

1. Clean – After each race you need to rinse your triathlon wetsuit with clean water. Chlorine or oily waters that you may have been swimming in will not your wetsuit any good. Some use special wetsuit shampoos, but a good rinse with clean water is more than sufficient. When you drying your tri wetsuit avoid direct sunlight or putting it next too heat.

2. Check – Make sure your wetsuit has not been damaged during a race or the frantic moments of the transition. Long nails are neoprene’s worst enemy. If necessary use neoprene cement to repair your wetsuit and prevent further damage. If you have a big tear you should contact the manufacturer for assistance.

[p1vc-video]

3. Store – Don’t just put your triathlon wetsuit on a hanger. If the hanger is not big enough the shoulders will get misshaped and ruined. It is far better to store your tri wetsuit flat. Dark place at room temperature will do just fine, but a cold dump garage is not a good idea.

As you probably already know, you should never use petroleum lubricant, vaseline and similar products.

It all seems like common sense, but it is surprising how many people actually mange to ruin their triathlon wetsuits only and a few races and end up buying a new one every year. You don’t buy a new tri bike every year, do you? The same goes for wetsuits.

Follow these 3 simple rules and you will enjoy your tri wetsuit for a few races to come.

You are going to the beach! Your children are so excited that they cannot stop talking about it. You are almost good to go. The reservations have been set, and the gears are almost complete. Well “almost”. You still need a wetsuit that your kids can wear on the beach.

As you go window shopping, you find yourself being torn with two choices. One, conventional spandex bathing suits and two, childrens wetsuits made of neoprene. So which one is the best choice?

Although spandex or Lycra suits seem to be a more popular choice, a lot of parents are starting to lean towards children wetsuits that are made of neoprene. Why so? Just to give you an idea, here are some advantages of neoprene wetsuits.

1. They allow your children to enjoy the water longer because they provide insulation that no any other suits can. How is this done?

As your children get wet, neoprene retains some of the water in between the suit and your child’s body. Now that trapped water slowly heats up as it goes in contact with your child’s skin. In a few minutes, that water becomes your child’s improvised blanket that keeps your child warm while swimming in cold water.

2. Unlike swimsuits made of Lycra or spandex, neoprene prevents your children from getting scratches or abrasions they may get while they play or walk on the sand.

3. Most if not all kids wetsuits come with 100% UV protection. This benefit lessens your children’s possibility to develop sun burn. And with this factor out of the picture, you can let your children enjoy the beach as long as they want.

4. Neoprene suits are naturally buoyant. This means that the suit itself helps your children remain floating on water. You will not get this protection from conventional suits.

5. As far a wearability is concerned, the childrens wetsuit are easier to put on children. Wetsuits usually come with long zippers and Velcro snaps. So even if you have your children struggling in your arms, you can get them dressed and undressed in a jiffy.

They are also quite fashionable. In terms of design, they do not really go far behind the colorful and pretty swimsuits you see in the market. Kids wetsuits also come in striking colors. If you choose, you can get your little princess solid pink wetsuit or if she prefers something more colorful, she can go for designs with more splotches of colors.

There are also styles to choose from depending on the activity they want to engage to. If your children are more of divers than swimmers, then they need better protection provided by full bodied suits. However, if surfing is their thing, you can get them a shortie – suit with short sleeves and pant length that allows them to move easier and more freely.

Those are but some of the advantages of neoprene wetsuits. Hopefully, knowing those will make your swimsuit shopping a bit easier for you.

Black Witch Neoprene Wetsuit Repair Glue

[p1vc-video]

1. Your wetsuit must be clean and dry and turned inside out. If your wetsuit has remaining moisture in it, wetsuit repairs will not be as strong, and may not hold up very well. Make sure your wetsuit is totally clean and dry before starting the repairs. You want your wetsuit bone dry!

2. Things you will need: You will need a small piece of neoprene (as long as the rip or tear plus an extra inch). You may be able to find a piece of neoprene at a local surf shop. I like to use 1mm -3mm neoprene for my repairs. If you can’t find regular neoprene, ask for wetsuit neoprene tape. You will need a small can of black neoprene cement (Please read warning label!) and use in a well ventilated area, also avoid direct contact with the skin.

3. Prep the wetsuit. Take the small piece of neoprene you have and cut a 1″ wide strip. Cut it also as long as your tear plus a little extra. This will be your neoprene wetsuit tape. Put the neoprene tape on a piece of cardboard off to the side for now. Make sure wetsuit is still inside out, and spread apart the wetsuit tear and clamp apart, so both the torn edges will not be in contact with each other. Shake up neoprene cement, and apply a thin layer of the glue to both the torn or ripped edges of the neoprene. Be careful to keep both edges apart. Let the first coat dry for 5 minutes and apply a second thin coat to the wetsuit tears. You will now wait about 8 minutes depending on temperatures, and how thick you applied the neoprene cement.

4. Put the tear back together. After letting the second coat of neoprene dry for 8 minutes and making sure their are no shinny areas of neoprene cement, remove the clamps from the wetsuit. Do your best to align the torn or ripped edges back together evenly. It is like contact cement so be careful. If you are a little off lining the tear back up it is better to leave it than to pull it apart. As you may then have to repeat with another coat of cement, and wait another 8 minutes. After repairing press together firmly all along the repair.

5. Putting the wetsuit tape on. After you glue the wetsuit back together and you are happy with your repair, make sure the wetsuit is still inside out. Put a thin coat of cement on your neoprene wetsuit tape and a thin layer of cement on the inside of the wetsuit along the length of the repaired tear. If your tape is one inch wide have the neoprene cement cover a little wider than that to make sure the tape will get a good bond when you apply your tape to the inside of the tear. Put a second thin coat of neoprene cement on the wetsuit neoprene tape, and on the inside of the wetsuit all the way along the repaired area. Now wait approximately 8 more minutes and then put the tape over the tear on the inside of the wetsuit and press the tape firmly down. Try also to press the neoprene tape edges down as well for an extra strong bond.

6. Let your wetsuit repair dry and go surfing! I like to let wetsuit repairs dry for at least a few hours (preferably over night). I have had to fix some wetsuits where the surfer needed to go out surfing right after the repair was finished. Sometimes that may work, but sometimes the repair does not have a chance to bond as well, and you may have to redo the wetsuit repair again. Not the end of the world, but it is better to give the repair a little time to dry. Well, with this repair method and the extra tape over the wetsuit tear, your wetsuit should be super strong and leak proof now. Keep an eye on the tape and if you see any of the edges start to come up dry the wetsuit out and re-glue the tape down. I hope this helps you! I have used this method to fix countless wetsuits.

Blue Seventy Women’s Helix FS Triathlon Wetsuit 2010

Women’s Ironman wetsuit is a part of the products of the Ironman Company, which not only deals in the sales and manufacture of wetsuits and other athletic suits, but also in other merchandise like clothes and watches. These products are sold under the different brands owned by Ironman, or in collaboration with another company. However, Ironman was originally known for fitness and athletic wear, such as wetsuits, triathlon suits, etc. Today, their line of business has widened, but they still have their focus on their high-class wetsuits.

Several companies like Blue Seventy, Aqua Sphere, etc. manufacture wetsuits for women, but a women’s Ironman wetsuit are preferred by many, simply because these are made by the World Triathlon Corporation, the owner and planner of all the Ironman events. The products made by different companies vary in the materials used also in the amount of engineering that goes into its making. The quality of women’s Ironman wetsuit stays the same – excellent. There are several differences between them, such as the material used in the wetsuits production. Some suits give more preference to the calves and thighs for women with stronger legs. Some enhance the arms of the swimmer and provide more durability and flexibility. A women’s Ironman wetsuit considers all these factors before it is manufactured.

Since these triathlon wetsuits are manufactured under the Ironman’s brand name, the quality of material used is high and the companies ensure that a lot of engineering and hard-work goes into its making. Women’s Ironman wetsuits are quite affordable and are extremely attractive as these brands work on the suits’ superficial designs as well. Once these suits are purchased, one can easily see that women’s Ironman wetsuit is definitely worth the extra cash.

During the time of Ironman events, these suits are sold at discounts and the prices come down to nearly half the original cost. This way, amateurs too can purchase this. One professional who purchased an this said that she found many plus points in the suit, she found one negative point. The negative point was that when professionals wore an Ironman wetsuit, it scared of beginners, as one look at the suit was enough to reveal how much of hard-work and engineering had gone into its production.

Our 2010 Helix is purpose built for a swimmer that requires a highly flexible suit, and neutral buoyancy. Unique construction combined with highly flexible materials produce an unrestricted range of movement, while buoyancy panels throughout the suit deliver a higher body position in the water. New in the 2010 Helix, is the location of laminated fabric panels on the outside arm of the suit. This paper thin material is over prointed with a reinforcing stripe, specifically designed and located to improve function and form through the recovery and reach phase of the swim stroke. The net result of this is a longer, more powerful and efficient stroke. The improved awareness and placement of the arm reduces the risk of injury, normally created by the lowering of the elbow during the propulsion phase. The high stretch TST panels remain, mechanically decoupling the arms from the rest of the suit working to ‘float’ the arm and improve shoulder extension, stroke length, and comfort. 2 generations of Helix has delivered the ultimate swimming experience. Olympic champions, world champions and world’s fastest swimmers and triathletes have placed the Helix in a class of its own. Available here first at www.onetri.com

Blue Seventy Women’s Helix FS Triathlon Wetsuit 2010

Women’s triathlon wetsuit is becoming increasingly popular at all water sports competitions across the United States. Even those who do not compete at professional levels are finding the wetsuit a good investment. Although there remains a debate about whether wetsuits significantly increase performance in water, the truth is that these wetsuits give athletes an edge over competitors without wetsuits and several water sportsmen and women have found that it does help them perform better.

Because sports have traditionally been men’s events, triathlon and other water based sports gear were hardly designed with women specific requirements in mind. However with the increasingly competitive and professional levels of women’s sports, manufacturers like the Blue Seventy and others have now provided a wide variety of options, including women’s triathlon wetsuit for women swimmers.

Blue Seventy wetsuits come in a variety of styles, zipper options, looks and sizes. Women’s triathlon wetsuit is designed to accommodate the unique physiological features of a woman’s body. These include more room in the hips and chest areas and slimmer neck, arm and leg openings. Blue Seventy suits fit so well around a woman’s body that they are called ‘body gloves’. These suits accommodate the requirements for more material in the bust area and fit well around joints like the arms, genitals and shoulders. Such a good fit helps reduce loose wetsuit material that may slow the swimmer down.

Blue Seventy women’s triathlon wetsuit is designed keeping in mind the delicate female skin. Its lining and material are selected to prevent chaffing or abrasions even while it reduces resistance in water, helping you glide through comfortably.

Amateur swimmers and some women find it hard to keep afloat especially when swimming for a longer time. The extra buoyancy provided by the special material in Blue Seventy’s women’s triathlon wetsuit helps to float easily. This reduces the effort required by the swimmer and hence makes her less easily tired. For a woman triathlon athlete this could translate in significantly improved performance in the next phase of the race.

Several women find that although women’s triathlon wetsuit fits better than a unisex wetsuit, often they fall in between the sizes available. Not having an appropriately fitting wetsuit could affect confidence and even performance. Blue Seventy wetsuits are available in a wide range of sizes to allow for several body shapes and sizes. You could also get in touch with the manufacturer to see if your size requirements could be further customised. If you are very tall or are shaped more like a man with narrower hips and wide shoulders, then you may also find the men’s suits better fitting. In either case remember to try on the suit before you buy. Several manufacturers like Blue Seventy are only too happy to help you find a good fit.

Women’s Triathlon Wetsuit [triathlonwetsuitreview.org/features-of-womens-triathlon-wetsuit/] is available in a variety of price options to suit almost every budget. Check out Blue Seventy’s wide range of suits before you look anywhere else. A good wetsuit will boost your confidence and performance by leaps and bounds so make sure you pick out the best one.

Spending your time outside in cold weather or getting your hands wet while fishing can really make your hands cold. Many people take their hands for granted during cold weather or in cold waters. Their bodies are wrapped up in thick jackets or wetsuits when in the water but their hands may be totally exposed to the cold. This practice is not safe in extreme cold as it could injure the hands and fingers. Keeping your hands warm on colder days is very important so you can enjoy the great cold outdoors and waters with no worries. This is so true for scuba divers, fishermen, ski enthusiasts, and mountain climbers in snowy mountains, who spend much of their time in the cold outdoors or in cold waters. There is nothing better than neoprene gloves to keep those hands safe and warm.

But what are neoprene gloves? The best thing about the neoprene material used in wetsuits, hoods, booties and gloves is that it is 100% waterproof. A good thickness is about 2mm for gloves and thicker for body suits or wetsuits. Fishermen commonly use neoprene fishing gloves to help keep their hands warm especially when fishing during really cold temperatures. Neoprene gloves are waterproof rubber gloves. The word “neoprene” is actually a trademark for the material polychloroprene. It belongs to a family of synthetic rubbers that is commonly used for many consumer and industrial products such as wetsuits, scuba gloves, fishing gloves, etc.

Because neoprene gloves are very effective in protecting the hands against harsh environmental conditions, natural and man-made alike, it is used in fire prevention and military combat gear, just to name a couple. Sometimes there are situations wherein neoprene gloves have to be insulated with nitrogen in tiny air pockets within the material to protect the body under extreme cold weather and underwater environments.

As earlier noted, neoprene gloves are commonly used in scuba diving and other underwater activities or activities where the hands get wet for long periods simply for the purpose of protecting the dexterity of the fingers and hands. These gloves are also used in many places where the handling of chemicals is involved, such as laboratories, mining, construction and chemical processing plants. In short, these types of gloves must be used in many hazardous situations and environments.

If you have wondered about how different women specific sportswear, like a ladies triathlon wetsuit, really is, then you probably have not experienced the great comfort and fit that only these provide to female athletes.

Women’s specific athletic gear today extends from equipment to apparel and is designed with the unique physiology of women and their special requirements in competitions. When wetsuits first appeared, women had no option but to wear men’s wetsuits. These were often ill-fitting, loose and hampered performance. A wetsuit needs to fit snugly over your skin to enable faster movement in water. A ladies triathlon wetsuit was later introduced to help women swimmers reduce the drag of loose fitting suits and glide faster in water. It was found to significantly boost performance and confidence amongst women.

There are several things common between men’s and ladies triathlon wetsuits. They require adequate insulation from water as swimmers will tend to be in water for longer periods of time and the risk of hypothermia could arise. Wetsuits need to have inner and outer layers for insulation. Buoyancy is an important requirement as it reduces the effort put by the swimmer in staying afloat, helping to conserve energy. Many suits use special material like silicone to add buoyancy. This could be very helpful for younger, inexperienced swimmers. The materials used in the wetsuit like neoprene help in abrasion resistance while cutting through water without chaffing the skin.

Similarly both men and ladies triathlon wetsuit are available in different types suited to various different water sport requirements. There are separate suits for surfers and skiers as opposed to swimmers and divers.

However these features in a unisex wetsuit would not give satisfactory performance to a female triathlon athlete. Most women swimmers prefer to change into a ladies triathlon wetsuit before the swim section. This is because these wetsuits have several women-specific features like lower neck-lines, wider hip areas, slimmer arms and neck arm and ankle openings, adequate contouring for bust and torso along with extra insulation in areas that are more prone to cold.

You should not pick out a ladies triathlon wetsuit without trying it on first. The suit must stretch comfortably over your hips and bust area and fit snugly around joints. Although size charts help narrow down your wetsuit, they may not be very accurate estimates of your own body shape. Woman-specific wetsuits also take into account the uneven distribution of material, less material at the waist and genital areas and extra material in the bust area, for women.

Unless you are shaped like a man, wide shoulders and narrow hips or are bigger than what the largest woman’s wetsuit can accommodate, you should not opt for men’s wetsuits. Make sure you look through several varieties and brands before selecting the best Ladies Triathlon Wetsuit [triathlonwetsuitreview.org/features-of-womens-triathlon-wetsuit/a-wetsuit-that-fits-great/] for you.

O’Neill wetsuits have a very interesting origin. Its inventor Jack O’Neill, is often referred to with the title, “the inventor of the first ever wetsuit”. While he moved along the West Coast of United States through out his young life and as an adult settled in North California. Initially, O’Neill used to work as a window and skylight salesman. But he was getting too caught up with the waves and ended up spending a lot of time in the rugged North California coastline. It is then that O’Neill started to think and research on a wetsuit that would let surfers ride the super-chilly waters of North California. At first, he experimented with flexible plastic foam and though this kept him warm to an extent, he wanted more. In 1952 he started his first Surf Shop. There along with some balsa surfboards and accessories he started selling neoprene vests.

By the 1960s the shop had become widely successful. He made full use of the marketing skills he had acquires during his initial years to brand his innovative products. From North California he expanded to the other locations as well and continuously improved upon his wetsuit design. There is a wide range of O’Neill wetsuits available in the market. The O’Neill Psycho wetsuit series is environmentally-friendly because it uses recycled neoprene. The suits come with either then ZEN zip closure system or the FUZE chest zip to keep out the chill. The O’Neill superfreak wetsuits are meant for super chilly waters. Its XDS Air Neoprene keeps you warm in such conditions. The O’Neill Reactor wetsuits include a range of features packed into one. These features include Fluidflux neoprene and Kevlar knee pads. The On’Neill Gooru wetsuit series provides for lightness and flexibility with the use of 100% ultraflex DS neoprene and its special seam construction.

Matuse wetsuits are essentially eco-friendly. Instead of using neoprene which is petroleum bases, they use a material called Geoprene. Geoprene, because it is derived from limestone, is much more eco-friendly. This geoprene is manufacture by the Yamamoto Corporation. Matuse wetsuits are definitely very comfortable because unlike normal wetsuits Matuse wetsuits based out of geoprene have a unique independent closed cell microstructure. Because of this independent microstructure the suits will keep you warm for a longer period. Matuse offers a range of premium wetsuits. One such wetsuit is the Matuse Hoplite which not only has super flexible geoprene, but also a second layer of Hydrasilk Nylon to keep the water off.

Jack Surf Boards offers a wide variety of surf wear, surf equipment and surf accessories. We are a leading surf shop which has a range of wet suits on offer from both o’neill wetsuits and matuse wetsuits. Please click on the links provided to know more about us and the products on sale.

Wetsuits are clothing that are made of neoprene, a stretchable rubber type material that divers and surfers use for water relate sports. It is said to give resistance and buoyancy to the body. The material is especially made for sports as it reduces the chances of sweating and heat inside it. These suits are available for both men and women. Women’s triathlon wetsuits are available in different types. There are long one’s that are with sleeves and legs, and there are the short ones that don’t have sleeve or have short sleeves with half legs. These are most worn by women who take part in water sports like swimming or diving.

When you are buying women’s triathlon wetsuits you need to keep many things in mind, as to win a sport it is important that you feel comfortable and confident. Before setting out to buy women’s triathlon wetsuits it is important that you make a checklist of all your needs.

First, it should have a proper fit. It is important that you feel comfortable wearing it. The suit is body hugging and that is why you need to see that the fitting of the suit around thighs, arms and shoulders is comfortable. Also, buy a suit that suits you, means a colour you like as that may help you cheer yourself up before the competition.

Second, you need to see that the material of the women’s triathlon wetsuits keeps you warm enough in the water so that you don’t get cold or stiff muscles under water. The rubber should help in keeping you warm to prevent hypothermia.

[p1vc-video]

Third, buoyancy is an important factor, so check that the material is thin around the shoulders and arms so that they can move swiftly in water. In addition, it needs to be thick around the chest and rest of areas so that it gives you enough buoyancy to float on water.

Fourth, the women’s triathlon wetsuits should be tight enough so that the water does not enter the suits. Water in the suit will make you very uncomfortable for performing your best and it will also make the suit stink and remove the floating factor of the suit.

Fifth, there are some wetsuits that have zippers. Though the zippers have their own advantages, their disadvantages outweigh their benefits. The zipper does not lock the body temperature and does not allow the suit to be tightly held by the body. Advantage is that it helps you to take off the suit easily.

While swimming it is important that the women gets a proper suit that helps her to win the competition and for that as a woman you need to have a checklist that states all the things you need to keep in mind while buying Women’s Triathlon Wetsuit [triathlonwetsuitreview.org/features-of-womens-triathlon-wetsuit/].

‘The Japanese Wetsuit’

[p1vc-video]

“As for my own surfing, let’s just say that when the waves start pushing 10 feet, I get this tremendous urge to make a sandwich.”

Bruce Jenkins, North Shore Chronicles

Anyone who’s ever sat slack-jawed in front of their computer screen after typing Big Wave Riding on YouTube will appreciate Mr. Jenkins’ sentiments. Indeed, there are some mind-numbingly gigantic waves out there; and for every ten thousand surfers who head for the breadbox, there’s at least one who heads for the beach. These lunatics make names for themselves (sometimes posthumously) by being towed by jet-ski into some of the freakiest breaks on God’s blue earth. Even non-surfers have heard of the places these daredevils go to test their mettle. The deep swells roaring onto Hawaii’s shallow reefs and lava rock formations have turned places like Jaws, Pipeline and Waimea into the stuff of legends; Near Half Moon Bay, Mavericks in Southern California is a frigid 30-foot monster and home to Quicksilver’s annual group suicide attempt known as the Big Wave Competition; the remote Teahupo in Tahiti brags some of the thickest swells on the planet and Australia’s East Coast proudly boasts some amazing places to die on a surfboard. But sometimes places like Mavericks are enjoying moderate 20-footers while the world’s true monster waves are lurking over 100 miles off the coast of San Diego. It’s called the Cortes Banks – an eerie patch of ocean where a subterranean mountain range peaks just 3-6 feet below the surface. Discovered by deranged surfers in the early nineties, this anomaly can produce swells the size of apartment buildings with wave-faces as high as 70 feet.

But we’re betting that you value your life. In fact even seasoned surfers wet themselves a little bit when these locations are uttered; like Mr. Jenkins, most of us would rather make a sandwich than take on a billion tons of angry saltwater with nothing but a piece of fibreglass-coated Styrofoam. This is why places like Vancouver Island’s west coast are so popular. Because here, your kids can splash around on boogie boards while you paddle out to manageably large sets. And while they can be both challenging and thrilling rides, you’re not really flipping the bird at Mother Nature nor will your kids be left orphans on the beach. In fact, come the right time of year, Long Beach, the 20 kilometre stretch between the Vancouver Island towns of Ucluelet and Tofino can produce some fantastic big waves. And you don’t need a jet-ski tow-in or an updated will-and-testament to make it worthwhile.

First, let’s give credit where it’s due: the Gulf of Alaska, venerable birthplace of the storms that generate the waves which eventually find their way to the British Columbia coastline from late September to March. The Alaskan Panhandle also generates a lot of the bigger solid running swells that bang against our beaches as well. It’s not just BC’s northern Yankee neighbours we have to thank, either. Second only to sushi as a favourite Japanese export, the delicious waves generated from storms off the coast of Japan travel across the Pacific with ease before smacking into Western Canada. Even the Southern Hemisphere’s storm waves would join the party if they weren’t apprehended at Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula before they reached the BC coastline. What can you do? American border-control…

The best waves on Long Beach can be found November through March, aka winter. But before you envision parka wetsuits and neoprene mukluks, it bears mentioning that Vancouver Island enjoys one of the most temperate climates in the country. Winter here usually means rain at worst, which can make for quite a surreal experience when combined with the perpetual fog that laces this coastline most of the season. What’s important to remember is that the water fluctuates between 7 and 14 degrees Celsius so a hood, gloves and boots aren’t a suggestion – they’re a pre-requisite. Renting the necessary gear can be difficult when the big sets start rolling in. Local outfitters are naturally reticent to rent you a board that may A) come back in several pieces or B) disappear along with the defiantly cavalier tourist who thinks his puka shell necklace and Bermuda shorts are all he needs to go toe-to-toe with King Neptune. If you’re ready to ride the big stuff, chances are you own your own hardware. And in these waters, that hardware should be Shaquille O’Neil size (6’8″ to 8′) for your best chances.

This is also one of the most picturesque surfing destinations in the world. With jagged coastlines, sandy beaches and lush, mist-shrouded forests, Vancouver Island’s west coast looks more like a scene from a fantasy movie than anything else – if of course, the fantasy movie had wicked big waves. The functional beauty of this place is its accessibility. While Tahiti might boast bigger waves and a better climate, Long Beach is just a short 4-hour drive from the province’s capital city of Victoria, 2 hours from Nanaimo and not much further from Vancouver and the Mainland.

While Long Beach and vicinity is home to the largest waves on Vancouver Island, the Lower Island has several other favourite surfs spots that are worth visiting and definitely deserve mentioning. Jordan River is located in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park and is home to Jordan River Surf Club, a friendly group of locals who are always more than happy to introduce etiquette-abiding visitors to their waves. Caveat: Jordan River’s waves only manifest during one tide and only then with specific winds and swell direction. Although conditions here can be as unpredictable as Lindsay Lohan’s career, when they’re good they’re really good, providing some of the longest rides on the Island. For your best chances, check out The Point, Rock Piles and Sewers. Thirty kilometres further north, you’ll find Sombrio Beach. Like Long Beach, the waves here are small to average unless helped along by a friendly winter storm. But it’s the idyllic surroundings that make Sombrio so appealing. A favourite destination with individuals looking to connect with nature, you’re just as likely to run into an amiable hippy squatter or an outdoor yoga class as you are to run into another surfer.

But for many, size really does matter. And despite the magical little bays, heads, coves and beaches that pepper Vancouver Island’s west coast, Long Beach definitely stands as the number one place to go for sheer magnitude. Rain or shine, winters here can produce waves anywhere between 12 and 16 feet not to mention 2 gorgeous little seaside towns to explore when you’re done hitting the waves for the day. This truly is Canada’s big wave mecca.

Sure, it’s no Waimea Bay; it’s no Mavericks, but let’s get real for a second – you’re on vacation, not on a pro tour. Come conquer British Columbia first.

Cortes Banks isn’t going anywhere.

Vissla is proud to collaborate with premium Japanese wetsuit maker BEWET.
THIS IS THE STORY
For starters all of the wetsuits are hand made in Japan. Our polychloroprene is made of 100% limestone. Polychloroprene (Neoprene) is normally made of petroleum through a chemical process. BEWET does not use petroleum. The limestone is sourced in the Kurochime Mountains area in Niigata, Japan. They were originally plankton piled up over 300 million years ago in the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the highest degrees in purity. The limestone is heated with cokes (fuel with few impurities) to make a carbide bond. Then the carbide is processed with acetylene gas and hydrochloric acid to make polychloropene. To heat the materials, our factory uses only hydroelectric power that comes from 15 power stations located in the Hida Mountains. This makes it self-sustainable and eco friendly. Corn oil is used as softener instead of petroleum additives.
All the remnants from BEWET’s factory as well as used wetsuits are collect from customers are carried to a thermal power station in Tomakomai City, Hokkaido to generate electricity. BEWET’s Factory is also powered by a solar power system. More than 60% of the electricity is powered by solar panels on the rooftop of the factory (100% on a sunny day!).

Mens Wetsuit – What Type of Wetsuit is Right For Me?

If you enjoy water sports then it is very likely that you each winter that you have to find something else to do. There is hope for men that love water sports including wakeboarding and diving. With a proper wetsuit you can have fun with water sports all year! A wetsuit allows you to stay dry while retaining your body temperature.

Which wetsuit is right for you? There are many types of wetsuits that are designed for various activities and water temperatures. Wetsuits are made of neoprene of varying thickness. Hypothermia is a real danger even in water that is 68 degrees because water will remove body heat over 25 faster than air. Neoprene acts as a natural barrier to keep your body heat inside your wetsuit and not dispersed in the water around you.
A spring wetsuit which is 2/3mm thick is designed for spring and fall activities when the water temperature is 68F-72F.

A spring wetsuit is often referred to as a “shorty” and it only covers the torso down to the knees.
When the water temperature drops to 68F and below, you will need to invest in a full wetsuit. A full wetsuit covers the legs and arms. The material around the chest is also thicker to trap your body heat. For extremely cold water of 48F-9C you will need a 6mm thick wetsuit that includes a hood, gloves and booties that are 5mm thick.

There is no reason be cold when you are out to enjoy a day of diving or surfing. Finding the right mens wetsuit could be your ticket to catching a wave when others stay indoors. Wakeboarding, in the winter using a wetsuit, has its benefits since you will have the calmest water in the winter with minimal boat traffic to create choppy water.

A Guide to Choosing a Triathlon Wetsuit

Women’s Triathlon Wetsuit Review

If you are one of the female athletes entering triathlon events then you may want to go through a women’s triathlon wetsuit review so as to know why you need a triathlon wetsuit. Well, triathlon is an athletic event that includes swimming, running, and cycling. Many triathlon events are conducted in the open. The coldness of the open waters is one of the reasons why using a wetsuit is advocated whether you are a man or a woman. In any water colder than 78 degrees Fahrenheit, wearing a wetsuit is advised and in many events it is compulsory.

One of the greatest advantages of a wetsuit is the added buoyancy that these suits offer. The high quality suits are made of good neoprene rubber, which provides buoyancy thus making it easier to swim and float on water. As you can understand from the women’s triathlon wetsuit review, these wetsuits help you glide over the water using less energy than what would be needed were you not wearing the suits. The suits are also designed to improve your swimming technique. This does not mean your suit will do your work for you, just that it will give you an edge.

Another consideration for you to start looking at any women’s triathlon wetsuit review that you can get your hand on is the added dexterity that the triathlon wetsuits provide. The suit is designed in such a way that you will have more freedom and flexibility of movement. They also reduce the drag which you usually feel while swimming, thus improving your speed.

This does not mean that you could go for any wetsuit that you can find. There are different types and brands of these wetsuits. Some are sleeveless which makes it easy for you to get out of them, while others are full sleeved and give you better buoyancy, less drag, and more warmth. You could get more information on their benefits by reading up on the brand’s women’s triathlon wetsuit review.

There are different categories as well. For beginners and people who do not want to spend too much on wetsuits, the Category 1 wetsuit may be the best. It gives you basic functionality. Category 2 and Category 3 suits will suit those who want better comfort, flexibility, and buoyancy but do not want to spend on top of the line products. Category 4 suits purport the best designs with technological innovations calculated to improve your speed and dexterity. They also cost you a fortune. However, before you spend anything on the wetsuit you should look at a women’s triathlon wetsuit review of the brand and find out whether it is value for money.

In short, triathlon wetsuits are a necessity for any women who wants to attempt triathlon in conditions where the water temperature is below 78 degrees Fahrenheit. They improve your speed, reduce drag, and keep you warm. Check out a women’s wetsuit review for finding out the best suits.
