I’m proud to have partnered with Dare2Tri this year.  The Challenge 4Speed Wetsuit I’ll be racing in this year is a big upgrade over what I’ve been wearing in the past, and I want my wetsuit to last.  I contacted Alex de Boer, founder of Dare2Tri, for tips on how a wetsuit should be stored for the winter, what to do to a wetsuit after it’s been stored for the winter before you wear it, how to properly dry a wetsuit, what type of damage can be repaired, and if there’s a best way to fold a wetsuit?
