All Hail Zoe McDougall’s Custom “Kill Bill” Suit
And someone put a sticker on her nose!
There is no doubt that by now you’ve not encountered one of Shane Jones’s bespoke neoprene creations, Jonesea Wetsuits.
But he’s also built a reputation and devoted following from the Los Angeles and international female surf contingent. Shane’s built gorgeous custom suits from a good portion of female longboarding’s best, and today can add one of surfing’s most talented free agents on the market, Zoe Mcdougal, to that list.
After parting ways on good terms with RVCA, Zoe debuted her new Kill Bill* suit today while free surfing in Europe, on tour for the challenger series with close friend-turned personal photographer, newly crowned US Open Champ, Caity Simmers.
And we just have to applaud the effort. What a fucking suit!
Surely one of the big brands is poised to scoop up Zoe in the coming months, especially considering her performance during the Vans Triple Crown last year, battling against Carissa Moore. But until then, we’re psyched to see such a world-class surfer tapping one of California’s underground for some inspired neoprene.
You can check out more of Shane Jones’ handiwork here.
*For reference, for those uninitiated.
