Our wetsuits different to all others. The female design team has used survey data and racing swimwear paneling to make the suits not just conform to but shape the body. The flex of the limestone allows for more size variation and the contrast gradient pattern does some special tricks that mean not only to they fit better they will look better on than female wetsuits ever have before.
As with the adult suits the kids range is made with the environmental and thermally superior limestone here in Australia to the highest production standards. They will last longer than other suits and if outgrown a trade back option in available. High neck for sun protection, vinyl knees and full size zipper together with the camouflage effect make them the best choise for your child.
Both men's and women's suits have shoulder panels to allow for paddling motion with the least restriction possible. Even the seam lines follow major muscle groups. So instead of hampering movement they act like compression wear to limit fatigue. They also make you look more muscular but no one really wants that do they?
Our patterns have been designed with the vision of sharks as the starting point and come in Base Camouflage of Grey, Blue and Green. Made of thermally and more flexible limestone neoprene with colours and thicknesses adjusted for locations. Temperate, tropical or southern waters for use by surfers, surf photographers and spearfishers.
Oil based or Limestone? Neoprene is a basically synthetic rubber made by chemical reactions using chloroprene to make chips that can be foamed or aerated with other chemicals added then baked to form sheets. Its covered with Nylon fabric to give strength to resist tearing. The chemicals used are petroleum based where as limestone neoprene uses calcium carbonate derived from limestone to add to the chloroprene so is more sustainable and has a lot of other advantages as well.
For the past year we have run a Survey Monkey SURFGirl 2020 survey to gain information on the fit, function and how girls wetsuits could be improved. The results were both candid and highly informative. We found that even female orientated brands don't take into account the the true shape of girls in a way that is functional and stylish. Our female designer has used the survey to create a new type of girls wetsuit that does.
The internal film can be used for any surface borne craft during manufacture like surfboards, skis, kayaks, paddle boards and even fishing boats. Any water craft where being camouflaged from underneath is a benefit. The inlay is made from high quality 95% reflective Polyester film in 25 or 50 micron with perforations.
For existing boards and other applications the decal is a reflective film defused to form the patented Phantom pattern of the correct reflective levels. It has a marine grade adhesive and is protected with a clear XX cover.
To reduce the incidents of shark attacks on surfers without harming the animal or impeding the surfer by developing a mitigation system that adapts to changing light levels and is effective on all species over multiple locations.
The patented method that is proving successful is based on not on a single magic bullet but by a number of factors working together to the avoid random encounters with sharks by not being noticed. If you cant be seen you wont be approached. Simple as that.
Over the past 4 years we have performed detailed scientific reviews, conducted pilot programs in confined and open water and carried out experiments with sharks not in manipulated, deep water, captive or contrived situations but off shallow beaches where they naturally occur were an attack could happen.
