G'day Guys,

Welcome to the Speedo Forum.

My name is Dave and I started this forum years ago as a place for guys who love speedos to hang out. Since then it has turned in to a great and active speedo forum.

If you are a guest, you can only see a small portion of the forum. Members like posting their speedo selfies so I don't like that to be 100% public. Joining is free.

If you are a new member, you need to email me your username so I can manually activate your account. This is a pain (for you and me) but it is the only way I've been able to keep the spam bots from ruining the forum. My email address is: DaveEvans@SpeedoFetish.com

speedo in late night politics

Stephen Colbert last night, "Let's put on our speedos and dive right in to the January 6th hearings."

Some of the target characters I definitely would NOT want to see in a speedo. Not worries, fat chance.

Re: Costa Rica

Thanks, diveguy, you're right. Obviously we're not going to follow the fashion police dictum that no man over 40 should should ever be seen in a speedo. Contrarily, we take liberties as seniors. People give us a lot of slack and discount our oddities. We will be seen, and for most people that means ...

Re: Costa Rica

Here's a photo of me with my wife at the Playa Espedilla in Manuel Antonio. My swim brief is a Turbo sardine pattern. What do you think of the look? We are in the north of 70 crowd, but we do enjoy life and try to stay fit and playful.

Re: Snorkeling on Vacation

Earlier this week I did get to go on a Catamaran snorkeling tour in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The snorkeling itself was disappointing, It's not Hawaii. Only one kind of fish, Sergeant Majors, plentiful around a couple of rocks, but the water was cloudy, and there was no visible coral, more flailin...

Re: Snorkeling on Vacation

It's great to hear that your Hawaii vacation played out well. I like your story about hiking back from twin falls in your speedo, meeting other folks naturally on the trail. That's along the famous (infamous!) road to Hana. I've done the hike in the National Park's Ohe'o gulch in a Speedo swim suit ...

We’re at Manuel Antonio now. Sunday on playa Espedilla where there were lots of locals of all ages, lots of families as well as quite a few tourists. Very laid back. Monday at the National Park, insanely beautiful beach and setting. Today on a catamaran for snorkeling and swimming. Lots of people fr...

The waterfall was in the Monteverde cloud forest at higher elevation, chilly water but welcome after the 2km hike in. I had my speedo in my backpack and had to go into the water behind a rock in order to put it on. Unfortunately my iPhone slipped out of my pocket and into a mess of branches in the w...

Re: Costa Rica

Today was river rafting in Speedo shorts, brief not appropriate. Lots of wildlife, monkeys in the trees and crocodiles on the banks, Later on I wore a snug Dolfin brief at the hotel pool/tub. Talked with a young couple on vacation from the UK and a family from Colorado; it’s all good. My wife and I ...

Re: Costa Rica

Oh yes, brought 4, why not, they are light to pack. So far wore a couple I bought recently: black/red Arena, and sardine pattern Turbo. Also have along a black/white Dolfin, and a classic blue Speedo. The vibe here in these areas is really laid back from both tourists and the nationals.

Re: Costa Rica

No worries so far in Costa Rica speedo wise. I’m now on the Caribbean coast, ecolodge in wild Tortuguero. Tourists from all over, Germans in speedos. Everyone is busy watching the monkeys by the pool. Nice weather. The sea is warm, pretty flat today, miles and miles of sandy beach. Pura vida. Strang...

Costa Rica

Can anyone relate speedo experience there? I’m going in a few days and will stay two weeks. Apart from hotel pools/spas, the most interesting water opportunities promise to be at the thermal pools by the Arenal volcano, and swimming/snorkeling on the Pacific coast. Maybe also on the Caribbean coast....

Re: How much would you pay?

Can't resist an impulse to check out the sale rack for swim briefs. I found this one, Turbo brand out of Spain, a brand I've never seen before around here. At half price! Anyway, I love this pattern. They call it Sardine Italia. I have no idea why the Italia is in there. It's designed as a water pol...

Re: Snorkeling on Vacation

For snorkeling in South Maui, go through Kihei and Wailea to the end of the road at Pérouse Bay, then hike along the northwest shore of the bay. You will find a series of smaller bays cut back into the lava, and there you are likely to find lots to look at underwater. One of the bays is called "the ...

Re: Speedo Friendly Areas in USA?

Go ahead and consider them all friendly, and put "hated upon" out of your mind. You may not see many speedos. People will be more curious than anything, and you will be showing them that there is another degree of freedom possible in the USA. Some may be judgmental, but they will keep it to themselv...

Re: Snorkeling on Vacation

I’ve had a nice experiences snorkeling in a speedo in Hawaii. One was a couple of months ago on the south side of Black Rock, one of the busiest places on Kaanapali Beach on Maui. The water near the rock is sometimes teaming with fish, especially on calm days. People, teens and tweens mostly, jump o...

Re: Nihon Eiho

I checked out “Why We Swim" again to re-read the chapter on Nihon Eiho, and realized that it does capture my personal whys for swimming. Mizo no kokuro=mind like water. Zanshin=active awareness. These days, post samarai, it embodies an attitude that mellows with age; it is less about the battle than...

Re: How much would you pay?

Just found this Arena brief at Outdoor Outlet (San Francisco CA area) on a sale rack for US$12, marked down from $24. It's my first Arena suit. I usually would't go for something with a big name on it, but I liked the style, and you hardly ever see Arenas on the racks around here. I didn't even know...

Nihon Eiho

Reading a recent book, "Why We Swim", by Bonnie Tsui, I learned about this Japanese martial art. Nihon Eiho is Japanese style classical swimming that developed over hundreds of years. I see Japanese members here, so I was wondering if this is just a narrow niche hobby, or if it is something that peo...
