  3. Here's my problem. As I've stated here numerous times, I'm an ordinary swimmer. I have no dramas swimming long distance, I just take my time about it. My wife is not a great swimmer, but is a fair bit better than me. In a recent 3km event here I swam a 59.27 and she swam 52.48. Now when I put a wetsuit on, my times improve a fair bit. I go from a 34 minute 1500 to a 30 minute. Trouble is, when my wife puts hers on, she goes backwards. We did a 1600m ocean swim yesterday and I swam past her at about the 1000m mark and just kept going. I finished about a minute in front of her. Needless to say, I copped a spray for swimming "too fast" and "cheating" and "not training". So I'm looking for answers. I think she's in the wrong type of wetsuit. She's wearing an Orca Alpha long sleeve and she complains that she always feels like a cork bobbing around. There was a bit of surface chop yesterday and she also had to breathe to her wrong side to avoid copping it in the face. Is there a wetsuit style that doesn't have as much buoyancy? My Orca 3.8 has amazing buoyancy from the thighs to the diaphragm which is perfect for me but she obviously needs much less. Sorry for the long post, just trying to preserve my sanity.
  4. What are people using to prevent wet suit chafing? I have tried Elastoplast tape around the back of my neck but it rolled up and didn't work. It seems to be worse in salt water and after every race its looks like I have tried to hang myself over the weekend.

  10. Hi Everyone, first post here. I only started training a couple of weeks ago for my first sprint triathlon. I'm on the hunt for a wetsuit (entry level as I don't want to spend big bucks on one - yet). Less than $200. What do you think of the three options below? 1) Orca TRN 2014 http://www.bikeexchange.com.au/bike_accessories/orca/accessories-wetsuits/trn/perth-east-victoria-park/wa/102280704 2) Dare to tri http://aus.dare2tri.com/product/dare2tri-wetsuit/ 3) 2xu (this one's a bit more expensive then the two above, so I think I'll give it a miss unless someone points out a big plus with this one) http://2xuoutlet.com.au/mens/wet-suits/r-1-race-wetsuit-mw1828c.html Today, for the first time ever, I swam 950 meters. 23 minutes. This would give you an idea what kind of swimmer I currently am (average lol). any suggestions? thanks

  12. Hi Trannies, Does anyone know if the Orca Alpha 1.5 is the replacement for the Orca Alpha? I've had my alpha for 3 years and its time to get a new one but cannot find anything other than the 2011 Alpha or this Alpha 1.5. Cheers
  13. Just thought Id share with you now that I tested out the suit this morning How much faster am I when doing a 400 and 200 TT ?

New HUUB 3.5 Archimedes Vs Straight Swim 400TT 5:52 Vs 6:45 200TT 2:55 Vs 3:17 Yes I was surprised Anyone else tested this? LB
  14. Hi guys, Couple of bits and pieces up for grabs: ==> Blue Seventy Reaction sleeveless wetsuit. Purchased in 2009 at Noosa Tri, Have used about 10 times since in races. Good condition, no cuts, not far off new condition really. Size Medium, I'm about 6 foot, 78kg - fits me perfectly. Ideally looking around $120, make me an offer. ==> Profile design rear drink cage - round seat post mounts. 4 years old - as new condition I guess - I didn't use it a lot as I went overseas, and haven't used for last 2.5 years.

  15. FS: Men's Orca 3.8 wetsuit size 7 (will fit someone between 173-185cm and 75-82kg). Overall in pretty good condition, has a couple of nail marks / superficial cuts. They currently retail for $650, you can find some new ones on Ebay for about $500 + postage, I'm asking $300 but will sell for $250 for any tranny members. You're welcome to come and check it out / take it for a swim if you like (I'm on the Northern Beaches of Sydney). Any questions feel free to get in touch otherwise it will go to Ebay over the weekend Rog
  16. Firstly, apologies if this has been covered already - but i couldn't see a thread. I understand that the decision about wetsuits will be made the day or so prior to the start based on water temp, what i am wondering is if it is likely / remote based on previous years and current local conditions? The reason is travelling up on the plane (from Melbourne) with the family, we'll be lugging enough crap and i don't want to bring the wettie for no reason. Second part of the qn - does anybody know of wettie hire availability up there?? Thanks

  20. I have used Aquaseal for minor wetsuit repairs (fingernail holes, small tears) and it's very good. Shop today recommended that Seal Cement would be better for wetsuit repair. (both made by same company) Anybody have any experience with both or with Seal Cement and advice as to which is better?
  21. Hi Trannies, Benn thinking about what looks like a significant investment. A new wetsuit. I have swum in an Orca Alpha for the last 3 years and it's at the end of its life. Im 6'6 and swim a 23 - 25 min OLY dist swim. I keep reading that the freak of nature is the best thing since sliced bread and was wondering if anyone has had any experience using it.
  22. Just found this while browsing the WTC FAQs I wasn't aware you "could" wear a wetsuit in a WTC race to the water temp of 28.8c. Though you aren't eligible for awards or qualification to world champs, also you would probably cook, but was surprised to read it. Does TA rules apply to Ironman Aus and Ironman WA, now Melbourne or does TA have nothing to do with Ironman? "Wetsuits are permitted if the water temperature is up to (and including) 76.1 degrees Fahrenheit (24.5 degrees Celsius) or colder. Wetsuits will be prohibited in water temperatures greater than 83.8 degrees Fahrenheit (28.8 degrees Celsius). Athletes who choose to wear a wetsuit in water temperatures between 76.1 degrees Fahrenheit (24.5 degrees Celsius) and 83.8 degrees Fahrenheit (28.8 degrees Celsius)will not be eligible for awards, including World Championship slots."
