Stinger suit Autumn

Posted by

Down here in Australia, with the arrival of March, we’ve shifted from summer to autumn and although for some that may mean less beach time, it certainly doesn’t mean less stinger suit time.

Seasonal change happens 4 times throughout the year and is marked by changes in the weather, hours of daylight and in the way organisms relate to one another and their surroundings.

Here we are losing daylight hours and those 40+ days have gone (thankfully!) leaving us with cooler, more hospitable temperatures. However that relentlessly damaging UV is still a factor that must be dealt with.

Climate change now means It has become a year-round proposition protecting one’s skin.

For those of you living in the northern hemisphere the “ice-cream headache” bone numbing cold of winter is finally retreating and spring has, or will arrive shortly in all its glory.

What a lovely time of year as your favorite bulbs burst into flower, songbirds sing melodically in search of a mate and you meticulously plan your much-anticipated summer vacation.

Aside from the above-mentioned, I believe a new season can also bring with it a change in ideas, a spring clean of old ways if you will, an opportunity to embrace new concepts and plan for the future.

For my mind it doesn’t matter what season you are entering nor what fabulous activities await, it’s time to plan on wearing a UPF 50+ stinger suit to protect your skin, that expensive body art, or help ward off marine stingers. After all, my plan is to look after myself as best as I can. What’s your plan?

Surfest & Stinger Suits

Recently we were doing a stinger suit photo shoot on one of our local beaches and once more it struck me how extremely lucky I am to live where I do. It was yet another glorious picture perfect blue sky day and although quite warm, the beaches were not in any way what one would call “crowded”.One of our models [...]

Bushfire

As much fun as I’m having developing Exotic Waterwear’s brand via stinger suit photo shoots, weekly blogs and social media, occasionally certain events put things in perspective and recent bushfires in the central west of New South Wales is indeed a sobering example. This past summer has been a long hot one and we’ve been warned numerous times about the [...]

Super Cool Cardinal Fish

In last week’s blog I highlighted just how far men have climbed up the evolutionary ladder and now we see them beginning to look after themselves (for example UPF 50+ Stinger suits for sun protection ) and taking a far greater role in the care and raising of their children. Some women may say “about time” however I say “good [...]

Australia Day Camping

Belated Happy Australia Day!! In last week’s blog I wrote about the effective protection our UPF 50+ stinger suits provide and given the upcoming Australia Day holiday I felt it very timely. This year, instead of going to the beach for Australia Day and given we had a 4 day weekend, Neil and I went bush camping at friend’s remote property [...]

Good on Ya! Previously I’ve written about the protection our suits give against those dreaded skin cancer causing UV rays and jelly fish [...]

Christmas Shopping Stinger Suits

As more and more orders for stinger suits come in I’m reminded it’s the ‘silly season’ and the masses are ramping up their Christmas shopping.Drawn like moths to a flame, seemingly sane folk join the annual pilgrimage to the mall only to be spat out hours later, zombie like, a mere shell of their former self.Is it any wonder; I [...]

I then looked at my calendar and got a nasty shock…Christmas is only 6 and a half weeks away! EEEEEEK!That same old lament…where did the time go?With this ultra fast [...]

Kirtley & Bob Stinger Suit Magic

When I began designing stinger suits and Exotic Waterwear was born, I didn’t realise the journey would include my meeting so many truly welcoming people. Kirtley Leigh (underwater model, http://underwatermodel.wixsite.com/underwatermodel) and Bob Halstead (renowned underwater photopgrapher) are two who readily come to mind.In an earlier blog I wrote about their attributes, skills, achievements and passions http://www.exoticwaterwear.com.au/blog/kirtley-leigh-bob-halstead-stingersuits/ however as my associations with [...]
