For all our bros out there who surf, you know there’s a bit of a renaissance when it comes to surf style.
It all started a few days ago when Quicksilver Japan introduced their “True Wetsuits” in conjunction with the ad agency TBWA\HAKUHODO.
Shit went viral in a few days:
From an article on theverge.com:
The True Wetsuit is made from jersey neoprene and a stretchy “dryflight” fabric. It looks very much like a too-tight suit made of strange material. There’s even a tie. And this isn’t like one of those joke t-shirts with a tuxedo painted on — each wetsuit costs a cool $2,500.
Additionally, the official TrueWetsuits.jp site shows a “pen and diary” product which is featured in the video and sends out an “emergency email” to work (which we assume is an autoresponder of some sort):
Today, we saw the news from Nixon releasing their newest watch which was developed in conjunction with Surfline.com called the “Ultratide”:
According to Nixon’s official website:
Two years in the making and delivering a revolution in surf watch technology, Nixon’s Ultratide is the product of extensive research, team development and represents a state-of-the-art addition to Nixon’s industry-leading Supertide and Lodown franchises. An exclusive partnership with Surfline taps the power of their leading global surf conditions network and delivers real-time data via wireless Bluetooth® technology to the Ultratide: tide, time, wave height, swell direction, wind direction and speed, water and air temperatures.
In other words – ultra rad watch for the surfer on the go and ultra rad wetsuit for surfer who wants to surf in-between meetings.
Only problem is – won’t you be sweating balls in a neoprene wetsuit at work?
