Surface

The OceanPositive Wetsuit. Grown, Not Made.

Designed for life in the water from diving and freediving to surface watersports, the Surface is made with certified sustainable natural rubber and recycled inner and outer linings.

 

Designed for life in the water from diving and freediving to surface watersports, the Surface is made with certified sustainable natural rubber and recycled inner and outer linings.

The minimal design features a mini chest zipper, eliminating the need for a back zip, radically improving mobility and minimizing the opportunity for water to enter the suit though the teeth of the zip. The flexible rubber of the suit provides freedom of movement and the inner ankle and wrist seals ensure that suit flush is minimized.

Perfect for snorkeling and freediving, this suit is also suitable for other sports including stand up paddleboarding and open water swimming due to the unrestricted nature of the design.

Using Yulex Pure™, a 100% plant based alternative to neoprene, the Surface is lined with recycled polyester made from post-consumer plastic bottles. Seams have been blindstitched and bonded with water-based glue, delivering comfort from a suit designed to have minimal impact on the ocean.

What Makes this Product Ocean Positive?
Yulex Pure™ is FSC® Certified, ultra-pure natural rubber made in the USA. The plants are grown without artificial irrigation systems and the materials are processed with recycled water. Even the waste plant material after the rubber extraction process is used as biomass fuel for electricity generation. The lining fabrics are created from ocean-bound plastic bottles, recycled and spun into polyester yarn. Water-based glues are used to bond the foam to the fabrics and every care is taken to minimize the environmental impact of this product.

Sustainable

Yulex Pure

"Surface, made using Yulex Pure™, offers a unique solution. Without compromising on strength and performance, it uses completely natural rubber that comes from a sustainable source using earth-gentle processes.

Yulex Pure™ is the world’s first high performing, nonsensitising, 100% plant-based, ultra-pure natural rubber that is FSC® certified, sustainably sourced and proudly produced in the United States of America.

The Yulex Pure™ Process removes over 99.9% of natural rubber harmful impurities, including proteins and increases its performance characteristics and physical properties delivering a stronger, more elastic material. Yulex Pure™ is sustainably grown and harvested, irrigated by ambient rainfall and helps protect the social and economic well-being of forest dependent communities.

Resources

After the neoprene creation process, the redundant trimmed materials will be recycled and reused in the mixing process to produce more neoprene sheets. Overall huge amounts of raw materials are saved, energy consumption is reduced and waste water and air emissions are minimised during production.
