Surf and snow leader Quiksilver is leading the innovation in the wetsuit market, as it launches the industry’s most flexible high-performance surfing wetsuit, using next generation Japanese technology. For the first time commercially, surfers can purchase a full length, one millimetre thick wetsuit which will be available to buy across the globe from 3rd October 2019.
The launch of the Highline Pro 1mm wetsuit marks the latest surf and snow innovation from Quiksilver, as they continue to set the standard in high-performance attire for riders of both the sea and slopes. This pioneering addition to the Highline Pro series follows the recent Highline Pro Airlift Vest, which helped revolutionise the professional surfing experience.
Kanoa Igarashi, 2020 Team Japan Surf Contender and Quiksilver athlete, says:
“This wetsuit is a game changer for the surf industry, and the most innovative design I’ve seen for a long time. Never before has a wetsuit allowed such free movement whilst remaining so functional. I will be wearing it at the Quiksilver Pro France this week and can’t wait to use it as part of my everyday surfing gear.”
All five Quiksilver athletes – Kanoa Igarashi, Jeremy Flores, Zeke Lau, Leonardo Fioravanti and Jesse Mendes – will be wearing the Highline Pro 1mm wetsuit whilst competing in this week’s Pro France.
The Highline Pro 1MM Wetsuit is priced at £570 and will be available from 3rd October online at Quiksilver.com and from selected Board Riders stores.
