Mark Healey, team rider for Quiksilver Wetsuits, talks about the monstrous barrel that is “Going Left” at Mavericks. It’s rare you see people go left at this big wave spot. Listen to what he has to say about it, right after taking a beating, and you’ll know why.
O’Neill has been hard at work in their area 52 labs coming up with the latest wetsuit tech, and this time around they have come up with something truly awesome. The new Mutant 4.5/3.5 with Techno Butter Neoprene and Super Seam Weld Technology is about as versatile a wetsuit as you can get. Basically they took the Mutant, which was already a great wetsuit, and made it lighter, warmer, and more flexible.
The Techno Butter is boasted to be a 17% lighter formula with 30% less water absorption, and it dries quicker than any previous O’Neill Neoprene. The Super Seam Weld Tech is an all new narrower silicone-based urethane seal applied to the outside of a triple glued stitchless seam. 60% Thinner, and Lighter. Thinner = More Stretch. Bam! The detachable hood on this suit extends its temperature range to get you through those icy duck dives without the icy headache, all the while giving you the option to completely shed the hood on warmer days.
This suit retails for $449.95 and is worth every penny.
Stock is limited on this Limited Edition Series. Get’em while their hot!
