If the thought of putting on your triathlon wetsuit or steamer is enough to put you off altogether, there’s a simple solution that will make it a breeze! The trick is plastic shopping bags. Simply wrap one over your foot, then point your toes down and slide it down the leg of the wetsuit. It should glide down with ease without the friction of your skin on the wetsuit material. After your surf or ocean swim, use the plastic bag to store your wet wetsuit until you get home, then rinse it under fresh water to remove the chlorine or sea salt, and hang it up on a wide coat hanger.
