Frequently Asked Questions
What to wear to swim in a Triathlon pool?
What type of Wetsuit do I need for Open Water Swimming?
Should a Wetsuit be tight?
How do I put my Wetsuit on?
See this useful guide and video by deboer for the very best tips. Put plastic bags over your feet and hands, pull the wetsuit up from the inside, not the outside and bring it as high up over your hips as possible before you put your arms in.
What thickness Wetsuit should I buy?
The maximum allowable thickness for racing is 5mm, but you will want thinner for warmer water. Most swimming wetsuits have a variety of thicknesses on different parts, e.g. thinner arms to allow movement. If you are winter training in open water, consider thermal vests, hoods, gloves and boots such as the Polar Range.
What’s the best Wetsuit for Breast Stroke?
The only breaststroke-specific suit that we know of is the Dare2Swim by Dare2Tri. The shoulders have been specifically designed to stretch in the appropriate direction for breast-stroke movements.
What do you wear under a Wetsuit?
You can wear normal swimming costume / jammers or a tri-suit. You don’t need to wear anything under a tri-suit.
Will my Wetsuit stretch?
Wetsuits is designed to be stretchy when you swim and move, but it will not stretch and become bigger or looser over time.
What Accessories do I need for Open Water Swimming?
Basically, a wetsuit and swimming googles. We would also highly recommend a safety swimmer, which is a float that hooks onto your waist and provides a float for you to rest on if you get tired or cramp. It is also highly visible so others can see you, and as an added bonus it stores your dry kit for when you are finished.
