• how to choose a wetsuit

    How do you choose a kiteboarding wetsuit is by actually thickness. So for example this is a three millimeter in the mid-section two in the legs and the arms. You have to really think about water temperature when you actually choose a wet suit. Some other things that are important to look at when you’re buying a wet suit is the types of seals that they put on the wet suit.
    So this seal is actually kind of one of the less expensive seals. Some of the other suits actually have what’s called a gusseted seal which is actually going to keep the water in the suit better. The type of neoprene is important when you’re actually selecting a suit, this is actually, O’Neill uses this neoprene called gooey neoprene so it’s actually a lot stretchier than a standard neoprene which is this. The type of kneepad also affects the price of the wet suit. This is actually a much better kneepad than just a real basic kneepad like this one. Now this is a new suit that’s just come out. And this suit they actually glue the seams and what that prevents is water moving in and out of the suit so it’s actually going to keep you quite a bit warmer.
    This is a five mill suit for colder temperatures, we can dive up to seven mill is one of the thicker suits that we could use to go diving. Notice how you can see his head out the water, but you don’t see the hips. The body shape is somewhat like a banana curved from the head towards the hip, this is the opposite of what we’re looking for. We’d like a long straight body line with the head mostly underwater. This helps keep the hips closer to the surface. Also notice the bubbles from the feet, they’re working quite hard.
    But if you are to take away the arms, they would really be very little propulsion by just using the hip. Noticed the difference in a good swimmer how the legs don’t have to work much at all. You’ll see the legs staying close to the surface, and just kicking to help the weight shift to the body from side to side. It’s critical to get comfortable with your head in the water ,nose down looking at the bottom. The head and hip should stay at the same level as much as possible. so how do you stay horizontal?
    Press on your buoys for your lungs, or your chest. This is the lightest part of your body, by pushing into the water with your chest while maintaining a straight spine line. Your hips will naturally raise to the surface without having to rely on a strong kick, or body position. Full stroke swimming involves many intricate details that are hard to learn all at once, so we break the stroke down into smaller segments we call drills.
    Hi there! This is Bear Grylls. So, I’m going on a wild bear hunt, and I feel like, this area, this chain of buildings, will have a wild bear in the thing. So, I’m just going to keep walking around, completely unprotected from the back, completely unprotected but aware from the front. Is this a radiator? These things are phenomenal for attracting bears! I feel like there might be a bear around the corner. Bear gonna be somewhere.
