Triathlon - Wetsuit for tris and kayaking

I'm looking to use one wetsuit for triathlons and kayaking, is anyone doing the same thing? Can you recommend a particular model or give me something to think about? Thanks!

Even though this is rather late... the short answer is you can't get one suit to do both well.
The reason is because bending neoprene takes effort and the two positions (sitting and standing) require bends in different areas. If a suit is designed to be comfortable while sitting, it is not particularly comfortable while standing and vice versa.

Seconded. Plus a tri wetsuit is pretty delicate - it has exposed rubber - and a kayaking suit is tough for all the bumps and scrapes you'll expect.
The standard bodge is a surf suit, which does nothing particularly well or badly. :)
