Quiksilver has announced their soon to be release zipper less wetsuit. It’s not the first by any means, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen them in production. The idea behind a zipper less wetsuit is that it adds flexibility. Zippers are not flexible. The chest zip entry replaced the zipper less wetsuit, but now it’s coming back around. Rip Curl also has a wetsuit without a zipper on the slate for a 2013 release.
I like what Quiksilver is doing with their Cypher Challenge. Three teams of two surfers, each from a different part of the world, along with there choice of film maker. The result? Three completely unique, and radical mini surf films for your enjoyment! Check them out below then head over to Quiksilver’s Website to vote for your favorite, if that strikes your fancy.
TEAM USA: Balaram Stack , Chase Wilson & filmmaker Pat Myers
TEAM CANADA: Raph Bruhwiler, Nico Manos & filmmaker Jeremy Koreski
TEAM LATIN AMERICA: Cristobal Del Col, Ramon Navarro & Filmmaker Rodrigo Farias
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.
Check this one out. 22 minutes of pure stoke. This is a cool look into the world of professional surfing, and the personas that are pushing the limits and progressing the sport. There is some great surfing in tricky conditions, and epic barrels, along with some good interviews.
