Wetsuits and Body Position (HD Footage)

This week on Feel For The Water we have a very rare piece of video footage for you to watch, filmed with our high definition filming rig in Perth.

In this fascinating clip we look at the difference in body position from using a wetsuit, a speedsuit, a pull buoy and normal bathers. As you watch this slow motion comparison, simply notice how the wetsuit and pull-buoy enhance Pro Triathlete Scott Neyedli's body position, particularly in the hip region. Watch the video: here

The clips are time synchronised, with Scott pushing off in all four corners simultaneously. Notice how much faster he finishes the lap with the wetsuit and the speedsuit, clearly demonstrating the advantages of a higher body position to your speed in the water.


Swim Smooth!
