Thread: Tail supplies in Australia?

  1. #1

    Question Tail supplies in Australia?

    Hi All,

    I've been looking everywhere for tail supplies in Australia, I was wondering if anyone could help. These are the things I'm looking for, as cheap as possible:

    • Finis Rapid monofin
    • patterned lycra spandex with some foil in it
    • thin neoprene
    • swimwear elastic

    Can anyone help with this? I've looked everywhere, but everything is hugely expensive on postage online and there's not much product available in stores.
    Help!

    Much love,

    Nylinda.

    this is going to be hard especially in Aus, I don't think your going to be able to get these materials cheaply. the monofin you could check at any good sporting store or ebay. Neoprene will be expensive I found this place http://www.linkron.com.au/product_de...&subProd=3when i was looing myself, You will find that most neoprene comes in "sheets" for your lycra or spandex i would try spotlight. Its hard to find what your looking for I know, but this is aus and everthing is sooo overpriced.. good luck

    Can someone please get me back to the ocean before I suffocate... I need the water......

    Spotlight it now seems stocks neoprene. I was in there yesterday and found it by accident. it's about $35 a meter and 1.3 meters wide.
    I saw it in red, green, yellow, pink and black.
    I'm going back soon so I can buy some!

    Good to know! I've been thinking of starting on some neoprene tails so it'll be nice to be able to go in and actually feel the stuff before I buy it.
    Let us know how it is!
