HOW CAN I HIRE A WETSUIT?
You can hire your wetsuit directly from either of our two stores, you can book it online and pick it up at an event, or you can hire it online and we will deliver it to your door in time for your event. Once you have filled the form and given us your details we will email you and confirm if we have a suit in your size available for the dates you require. When we have confirmed your size is available we will then ask for full payment to secure your wetsuit.
Please book early to ensure we have a wetsuit available for you. We have wetsuits for Women and Men from XS Sizes to XL.
Swimming Wetsuits must be used in Salt and Fresh water only.
Avoid pools or chlorine environments.
A wetsuit should be put on when you are dry.
Remove watches or jewellery and avoid nail contact with the rubber, use finger tips and please use the gloves provided. Triathlon specific wetsuits are fragile and require careful use.
The suits are made to be put on slowly, allowing enough time will ensure you get the suit on correctly. Pull legs on first as far up as you can, then pull on the upper body of the suit, taking care to pull the body up as high as possible before putting one arm in at a time, pushing the sleeve up high on your lower arm and then inching it up over your shoulder completely before starting on the other arm. If needed, use a lubricant (e.g. HUUB sport LUUB, NEVER Vaseline or Baby Oil).
Everyone who is not used to triathlon wetsuits will find them uncomfortably tight when they first put them on. Any tightness will immediately disappear as soon as you enter the water. If the wetsuit is comfortable on the land then the chances are that it is too big for you and will scoop up water when you start to swim.
Rinse out in cold or warm fresh water after each use. Allow to dry inside out, away from direct sunlight, before turning back the right way once the internal material has dried.
The hire period starts from the day after the Wetsuit is shipped or collected from our store. It must be returned to us on or before the due date.
Hire Wetsuit bookings MUST be booked prior to event day.
A bond of $100 is payable at the time of hire, for hires of 2 days or more duration. This will be fully refunded on return of an undamaged, clean wetsuit.
One Day Hire $30
Suits can be collected at registration or morning of the event and returned after your race.
Weekend Hire $50
Suits can be collected the day before your event and returned after.
Week Hire: $80
We can deliver the wetsuit to you. Courier costs are worked out at the time of securing the hire.
2 Week Hire: $140
Cost includes delivery of the wetsuit to you. We will send your wetsuit 2 - 3 days prior to the date you have selected so it arrives in time.
Standard Delivery is included in the price of the wetsuit hires of a week or more and is usually a 2-3 working day service. Hires for a weekend or a day that require delivery will incur a shipping fee, worked out at the time of hire confirmation.
If, after using the hire wetsuit, you decide to purchase a HUUB wetsuit from Teamline within 7-14 days, you will get the hire cost off your purchase price.
