AXL / DOH Pro – Welsh Surf Contest – Event 6 UK Pro Surf Tour

UKPSA – Tynemouth – North East Open

Triathon reviews series.

March 7th, 2011 No comments
As one of the UK’s fastest growing sports and one of the most fun, lots of surfers are turning to triathlons as a great way to stay in shape for surfing as well as compete in a challenging and enjoyable sport.
As part of this following on from our successful tried and tested reviews section over the next few months we are going to feature a number of reviews directly relating to triathlons, including wetsuits, tri-suits, bikes etc..
We hope that you will find these reviews as helpful as the wetsuit reviews that we have done as the fantastic feedback has been so positive.
Next to buying a bike the wetsuit is going to be one of the more expensive purchases that you make as a triathlete. The market has changed totally over the past five years and instead of suits being owned by a few and hired by the majority for the occasional open water event we now have the reverse. Of course, this assumes that you are planning an open water event — with one or two notable exceptions you will not be allowed to use a wetsuit in a pool-based event.
Prices of suits range from an entry-level around the £170 mark through to top-end suits that any pro would be delighted to use for £300 and more. If you are on a budget it’s always worth looking into end-of-year or end-of-range bargains in the winter sales or considering an ex-hire suit.
Major races like London actually operate their own hire fleet of suits for those people who are aiming to do just the one event and will let you keep the suit for the entire season for training in for a fraction of the cost of buying it. They aren’t very glamorous suits but they are more than adequate and offer a sensible alternative to purchase for one-off triathletes.
You can’t wear a wetsuit under the following conditions:
Swim distance Temperature
less than 2000m greater than 21 degrees C
2000m to 3000m greater than 22 degrees C
more than 3000m greater than 23 degrees C
Wetsuits become ‘optional’ (unless other arrangements are in force, such as at events like London) at 14 degrees C and below this the swim distances are limited with 500m being the maximum recommended distance at 11 degrees C and no swimming should take place at all if it’s colder. Theoretically you won’t ever need a wetsuit in a pool swim but we know of three pools; Wellington College and Eton College (must be something about English boys schools!) and Tooting Bec Lido, where the water is definitely wet-suit legal for almost the whole year!
Wetsuits may be constructed of up to three separate parts (that’s legs, top and hood but you cannot wear just the legs), and you are not allowed to use boots or gloves in a race. The maximum thickness of the neoprene is also limited to 5mm and there are some other highly technical bits about distribution of the various thicknesses but for normal use we can ignore them. Any suit from the major manufacturers listed below will be a legal suit and you can check the official list on the ITU’s website:
The big investment
A wetsuit is a significant investment, especially when you consider that you’ll probably only use it half a dozen times a year. Like all such investments it’s sometimes hard to justify spending more than a bare minimum but it’s definitely worth it. The more expensive the suit the more flexible it will be and, generally, the better it will fit. Not all wetsuit makers use the same body proportions so do not rely on the fact that two different makes describe a size as Medium – they may be wildly different in fit. Do get advice on the fit of the suit and do be prepared to try on several, and allow time for this. Once bought and worn it’s unlikely that the shop will be willing to take it back if you decide that it is the If you are outside of the ‘norms’ in terms of body size or shape you can opt for a made to measure suit. Getting a made to measure suit means that you can, within the limits laid down by the BTA/ITU, choose your suit to match your swimming style. If you have a good leg kick you’ll need less rubber on the legs, if you have a lousy leg kick and get cold very quickly then you might go for thicker rubber and a thermal lining. The elite, who can literally win or lose a race in transition, might go for special panels so that the suit slides off easier or different zipper configurations. You can also opt for different suit types such as sleeveless or even a shorty but you need to be pretty tough and a good swimmer to get by in one of these in most of the British waters
For the majority of triathletes reading this, however, an off the peg suit will be more than adequate and they now come in such a range of sizes that it will be hard not to find one to fit.
The small investment
If you are on a really tight budget and you’ve just been conned into doing your first, and possibly only, open-water swim then the sensible answer is to hire a suit. Several of the big triathlon shops do offer suit hire for the major events and, as previously mentioned, London operates its own fleet of suits. DO NOT hire a suit from a surf or sailboard shop other than as a last resort. Triathlon wetsuits are very different to watersports suits and are specifically designed to swim in – most other suits are too restrictive.
Another alternative is to go for a second-hand suit or ex-hire suit but there can be problems with this route. Many athletes use petroleum jelly to lubricate the collar and cuffs of the suit to reduce chafing and speed transition. This can, and does, literally rot the suit by weakening the rubber and slowly dissolving the glue that joins the bits of the suit together. The trouble is, you can’t really tell that the rot is there until you start tugging and stretching and then it’s usually too late! That said, many second-hand suits are in good condition and often a bargain. The shops that hire out the suits often sell them off at the end of a season and they are unlikely to have been too badly abused in one year.
The fit
A wetsuit is, as its name suggests, not going to keep you dry! The whole idea is that a thin layer of water gets in between the neoprene and your skin where it gets warmed up by your efforts and then this warmth is kept in by the rubber. And, in terms of fit, that’s one of the key indicators — the suit needs to be tight enough that there are no baggy bits, wrinkles or obvious air pockets (the small of the back is one area you always need to check as are the armpits).
One way of describing the perfect suit fit is that the suit should feel like a surgeon’s glove — not constricting but like a second skin. However, because the suits stretch so much getting this fit is not simply a matter of squeezing yourself into the smallest suit that lets you breathe, your arms need to be able to move freely so that you can swim properly and the body of the suit certainly doesn’t want to pull between the neck and the crotch.
Women, having a different body shape to men, should look for suits that are made for them first. That said, there are plenty of women out there swimming in a man’s suit because, for their body shape, it is a better fit. Wetsuits are, all said and done, just neoprene body bags and, for the sport of triathlon at least, gender neutral. As with choosing a bike, get one that fits right and ignore the label.
Putting one on
There is a trick to putting on a wetsuit which, once learned, makes life in transition so much easier. First, always make sure your nails are trimmed short — long nails rip through rubber and will result in a lot of bad nicks or worse. If you have to have long nails then consider wearing thin gloves when putting the suit on (something like the De Feet Dura Glove is ideal). So, for the trick itself, you need a typical supermarket carrier bag; Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsburys or whatever takes your fancy but the thinner the better. Now, prepare the suit by unzipping and rolling it inside out down to half a leg. Now put your foot in the bag and then slip it into the leg pulling the suit up as you go. Peel the bag off your foot and repeat for the other leg. Easy, wasn’t it! The trick is that the bag acts as a barrier between the clingy lycra interior fabric and your skin and makes it almost frictionless. Now roll the suit up to the crutch and make sure the legs are fully pulled up and there is no nappy gap. Finish off by repeating the bag trick with the arms and then get a friend to do the zip up for you.
To make things easier for removing the suit you can use a little lubricant round the ankles but many seasoned triathletes also cut a bit off the bottom of the legs, usually angled front to back, which makes the home a bit bigger and so stops the suit balling up around the ankle when you pull it down. As long as there is still water inside the suit it will come off pretty easily once the zip is undone. Just get the arms out first and the roll it all the way down to the knees and step out of it. Once you have one leg out you can tread on this to help get the other leg out. In races where T1 is a long run from the water you may decide to take the suit off immediately but do make sure you get well out of the way first as impeding other athletes often leads to abuse and even a possible penalty. Some races, London is one example, make you take the suit off and bag it to stop lots of water getting onto the transition flow while others, IMUK being an example, may even provide neutral helpers to assist in stripping off the suit. Whatever the race, this is something you need to practice.
Looking after it
With proper care and attention you will get several seasons of use out of a quality suit. Indeed, apart from physical damage there’s little that can fail other than the rubber itself or the stitching. Do check the seams, they can usually be re-taped, glued and stitched if they show signs of wear, and if the suit seems to be holding water like a sponge then it’s a sign that the neoprene is failing.
Always wash the suit with clean warm water and dry it in the open air (but not in bright sunlight) after use
After a race where the water was less than clean put Milton in the washing water to remove those lingering odours!
Store the suit flat and, if you have to fold, do it lightly as though you were folding a good suit to pack in a case
For long term storage such as over-wintering turn the suit inside out and store flat in a cool place
If you need lubrication use a water-soluble natural substance. Body Glide is the real deal here but the Body Shop’s Avocado Body Butter is an excellent alternative and the Americans swear by a product called Pam which is a low calorie spray-on cooking oil. NO VASELINE!!
Who makes suits
If you want a custom made suit then there are really only two choices. Snugg, based in Newquay, can work miracles with rubber and many pro suits which appear to be a sponsor’s branded suit have often been seriously altered by Malcolm and his team. They also offer a repair service which can fix pretty much anything from a nick to a completely torn off leg or arm. Terrapin, run by the redoubtable Biddie Foord and based up in Leicester will also craft a suit to your desires and fix most sorts of problems.
The major brands, at least in terms of UK market share, are Orca, Blue Seventy/Ironman, Foor (exclusive to Tri-UK) and Quintana Roo although this latter brand has declined in both popularity and availability quite markedly in recent years. Adding to this quartet are a whole raft of new and non-so-new brands: 2XU, Aquaman, De Soto (T1), ProMotion, XTERRA and Zoot.
Watch this space for the new tried and tested reviews coming very soon, and thanks to for help with all this.

Russel Winter Sends Out Warning at Relentless Boardmasters

Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 5-Star Men’s Event

Stop No.4 of 12 on the 2010 ASP European Men’s Series
August 3 to 8, 2010
Newquay, England

Russel Winter Sends Out Warning at Relentless Boardmasters

Russel Winter (GBR)

NEWQUAY – England (Wednesday, August 4, 2010) - The Relentless Boardmasters a Men’s Star Series $120,000 5-Star event advanced through to complete remaining round one heats and the first four clashes of round two which was capped off with Newquay local Russel Winter (GBR) blasting his way into the
third round of this Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) sanctioned event with an outstanding performance to place himself in a commanding position for the remaining rounds of the Relentless Boardmasters 2010.

There were 3-4ft peaks during the entire day offering plenty of waves but making it very difficult for competitors to find a wave connecting through the many sections to allow for any series of manoeuvres. The stacked international field made the most of the tricky conditions battling against wind and rain in their bid to reach the advancing positions.

Russel Winter (GBR) nailed an 8.17 out of 10 in the first minutes of his 25-minute clash and a second wave of 6.17 to cruise through to round three and emerges as a threat to many of the top seeds in this year’s edition of the Relentless Boardmasters 2010.

“I got those two waves right off the bat really and that first one that came to me was really a nice size set and I bottomed turned and snapped at the top and almost over did it as the fins slid out a bit but managed to hold onto it and do another snap so after that I felt a little more confident so I am on a roll and stoked.”

Travis Logie (ZAF) also advanced to round three behind Joao Guedes (PRT) who claimed his best ever result at the Relentless Boardmasters after four previous visits to Newquay and it was all the sweeter making it in a heat so stacked with talent.

“I am really happy to pass into the next round and it was not an easy heat and to come out on top over a WCT surfer like Travis Logie who I really like the way he surfs and on my first wave I was lucky and on my third because the waves are not easy to surf right now. My two waves held up and went almost to the shore break and I did some turns and made it through.”

Due to the strong winds Guedes was unable to hear situations so without exactly knowing where he was positioned in regards to his competitors was forced to search and surf everything available in his attempt to advance.

“I was a bit nervous out there because I couldn’t hear anything during the entire heat and I had no idea what position I was so I got nervous in the end because I saw the guys ripping some waves and all I could do was keep on catching waves.”

Early standout was Jay Quinn (NZL) who in his first appearance here this year at the Relentless Boardmasters capped off an excellent 25-minute display of powerful forehand surfing to claim a two wave total of 15.00 out of a possible 20 the highest of the day.

Coming back to Europe after a break at home after the European Spring leg in Scotland and France Quinn is hoping to make a result hear at the Relentless Boardmasters the first of six major ASP Men’s Star Series events.

“I went out there trying to keep busy and the waves I took off on pushed all the way through to the inside so it was quite nice to get a couple of 7 point rides. I’ve been here a few times and I’ve had a quarter-finals finish here and I hope to do better than that this time round.”

“The draw has opened up a lot because there are other events on at the moment so my chances have improved to get a result here,” explained Quinn. “I want to try and take advantage of that. I have had a bit of time off over the last couple of months at home surfing some good waves so I’m feeling good and I will stay for all six events here so looking for a good start to it all with a
result here to begin with.”

Reubyn Ash (GBR) 22, is one of the best young surfers in Britain with a huge future ahead of him and having surfed at Fistral beach over many years knows that choice of equipment in these kind of conditions is crucial when wanting to get results at Fistral beach.

“It is kind of real hard conditions now and I managed that one air which got me the score I needed to get into the heat and come through so I am stoked because it is all over the place so you can really benefit from having a good board here that works in bad conditions because even though it looks about 4ft in the end you end up on a little 1 footer on the inside.”

At times lacking confidence in his own ability which has put pressure on himself and affected results over his career Ash has a new approach to his competitive surfing which he explains.

“I’ve got a real nice little board at the moment so I just want to have fun really when I am surfing and I think to be honest at the contests at the moment I am not really worried about all the results I am just trying to enjoy what I enjoy doing. I’ve spent too many years worrying about whether to get through or not when I should go out there and surf and try to do what I do

Event officials have decided to make a check-in tomorrow on day 3 of the Relentless Boardmasters at 8:30am for a 9:00am start to heat 5 of round two. Conditions are expected to remain the same and with the higher tide another day of action is planned to unfold.

Aliotti Leads Opening Battles of Islas Canarias Santa Pro Junior

through to Round 2 [Aquashot/]

LA CICER, Gran Canaria (Wednesday, August 4, 2010) – The Islas Canarias Santa Pro Junior, first of two
ASP Grade-2 events taking place in Europe this summer, kicked-off this morning in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, tricky two-to-three foot (0.5 to 1 meter) waves, Round 1 competitors delivering some good progressive surfing.

Second to last event on this year’s ASP European men’s Junior tour, the Islas Canarias Santa Pro Junior’s crucial ratings’ points meant added pressure from the first day of competition, local rising talents making their best to shine at their home beach and cause some upset against some of Europe’s most promising surfers.

Taking control of Day 1 with solid surfing to open his Canarian campagn in style was Caribbean’s Saint Martin native William Aliotti (St Martin, FRA) who dominated Heat 8 to advance and join event top seeds in Round 2 of competition. Unleashing convincing fins-out turns on the rapid-breaking launching ramps of La Cicer’s beachbreak, Sopelana pro Junior’s finalist lost no time to make his intentions clear posting a 14.34 point heat score.

“These conditions usually suit me well and I was really looking for the vertical sections and pull some airs,” Aliotti said. “It’s my first time here, it’s pretty cool and I feel comfortable on that wave so hopefully I can get through some more heats in the next couple of days.”

Besting Basile Belime (Algarve, PRT) and eliminating threats Nico Arrigue and Cristian Rincon (Gran Canaria, CNY) en route to Round 2, Aliotti showed how relaxed he was despite knowing the importance of securing a big result by the end of the week, a finish that would mean serious confidence before the showdown next week in France.

“That result in Sopelana was just great and I couldn’t expect for much more,” Aliotti said. “I’ve been training and travelling pretty much alone and it’s so good to see things going my way. I’ve found some support to start things on the junior tour this year so I am pretty stoked to be here and will give it my best.”

Following the day’s top scorer in excellent form was the Basque contingent led by second best scorer of the day Alex Iriondo (EUK). With eight surfers finishing first or second of their respective heats out of a possible nine, the Basque flag was up all day at La Cicer, Iriondo’s 12.50 point result and Mitxel Lopez’s 7.00 pointer setting pace before Round 2.

Day 1 was called off after Heat 16 of Round 1, event officials setting Thursday’s call at 9.30 AM at La Cicer for all remaining sixty-four competitors. With ratings’ leaders readying to hit the water around 10 AM and consistent three-foot surf expected, the Islas Canarias Santa Pro Junior will witness another rise of level.

Ratings’ leader Medi Veminardi (REU) and ratings’ No. 2 Tom Cloarec will be amongst those starting their run tomorrow, recent event winner Charles Martin (GLP) coming with high expectations as well towards a possible end-of-year win.

“It’s my last year as a Pro Junior so I am looking at the regional title before moving on to my professional career,” Martin said. “I just won an event and I am the defending champion here so it is great confidence before my start tomorrow.”
