Billabong V1 Big Wave Floatation Wetsuit

In 2010 big wave surfer Shane Dorian took the worst wipeout of his life whilst surfing Mavericks, California. After almost drowning he came up with the idea to incorporate an air bladder into a wetsuit. Shane contacted Billabong and straight away they started working on the life saving device.
