Summer shorts.

Post by HarryWats0n » Fri Apr 30, 2010 5:44 pm

Summers here! its time to ditch the wetsuit and bust out some swimming shorts. But I would like to wear some neoprene shorts underneath just so I dont get to cold, can anybody reccomend any? Thanks.

IR Guide Shorts if you want to look pretty,
Palm Gradient Shorts if you want the to last forever.

Or the cheaper alternative - wetsuit shorts with normal boardeys over the top.

Wetsuit shorts aren't that cheap though, nor are good boardies (as someone who ripped the arse out of 4 pairs of boardies in a month last year, cheap boardies aren't that economical).

I wouldn't really bother thinking about summer as according to all current model runs spring has yet to arrive, let alone summer. Today's cold northerlies and well below average temperatures are here to stay for the foreseeable future. Business as usual I suppose. :-(

Spring has arrived when the dandelions are in flower. We have loads of them around here. And whilst they say one swallow doesn't make a summer, I saw plenty of swallows on the river this morning.
