Wetsuits on e-Bay

Just a quick post as there are a few swimmers now jumping into the open water, if you need a wetsuit a good option is to look at TriSportsResort on e-Bay. This is the clearance shop for well know retailer wiggle.co.uk and mostly they post items that have been customer returns. On wetsuits that will typically be when someone has tried on a wetsuit, put their fingernail through it, and sent it back (usually with tags still on). As Wiggle can’t sell them again new, they clear them on e-Bay. But the wetsuits are always good and any small nicks or tears can be patched with Black Witch glue (neoprene glue) which is great and costs around £8 a tube and good to keep to hand. Always look at the wetsuit sizing chart and buy based on firstly your weight and then your height. You can also go to Wiggle’s website to read reviews and check the usual selling price so you know not to bid too high. Note that swimming wetsuits are also shorter in the leg so don’t be worried about that. Here’s the e-Bay shop, have a look, it’s worthwhile. Good first time brands are ORCA , Zone3 and DHB. https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/trisportresort

Enter the brave!

Well done to the OWS squad today at Pinkston. The sun had gone, the wind was up, oh and the rain came on too just for good measure. But this didn’t stop our fun and even our head coach Jan (who as a busy mum and coach didn’t even have time to stop and put on a wetsuit!) jumped in for some laps. A special well done to young India who was trying out for the first time, along with her dad David. It’s great to try something new and hope to see you both again soon.
