Scott Unsworth, a former New Zealand age group triathlon champion, had to stop competing due to a chronic back injury. Whilst working as a swim coach, and from his first hand experience in competing in triathlon, Scott realised that the wetsuits used at the time were completely inadequate for swimming.In 1992 Scott started up a company called Performance Speedsuits Ltd, based out of his parent's house in Auckland, New Zealand. He began to develop his "Speedsuits", which featured greater flexibility and buoyancy than other existing wetsuits. The business started with Scott selling his Speedsuits from the back of his car at swim meets and triathlon events.The Speedsuits quickly gained a following amongst athletes and the business started to grow. Scott was taking his first steps towards introducing what would become Orca, to the world.
