COASTALWATCH | NEWS

From the let’s-keep-an-eye-on-surf-technology-as-it-develops department, Quiksilver have today announced that they’re releasing a wetsuit that we think looks unlike anything we’ve seen yet – a full length, one millimetre wetsuit. Named the Highline Pro, they’re calling it the industry’s most flexible high-performance surfing wetsuit.

Here’s some more specific product details from today’s press release:

“Researched and developed for over two years bringing together the utmost quality and craftsmanship of Japan’s finest wetsuit makers, the unique ergonomic design features just nine panels on the entire wetsuit with 100% stitch-less seams. The wetsuit is fused together using Japanese taping for the ultimate free movement and absence of restriction.

The state of the art suit is made of super light-weight Japanese limestone neoprene, and combined with just one millimetre thickness and seamless technology allows incredible flex whilst keeping riders warm in all climates for high intensity, short sessions. Every design detail has been considered, ensuring riders are the best equipped for the world’s most exciting, and most challenging waves. In a surfing first, Quiksilver has designed a tailored entry system for regular and goofy foot surfers, designed to reduce water flush during wipeouts.”

All the Quikky team riders (Kanoa Igarashi, Jeremy Flores, Zeke Lau, Leonardo Fioravanti and Jesse Mendes) will be wearing the new suit while competing at the Quiksilver Pro France this month, and we’re sure we’ll be hearing about it a bunch over the broadcast at the Quiksilver sponsored event.

As yet, no comparisons to those full length rashvest suits nippers wear to avoid sunburn have been made, but that is funny, yeah? It's not? Okay.

The Highline Pro becomes available the same day the Quiky Pro France begins – Thursday October 3 – but it won’t be going for pocket change, however, with the listed Australian price being one cent short of a grand – $999.99.
