Be A Less Hulky Big Wave Guy
Buell X JOB create a toned-down suit with ultra stretch.
So you’re kind of a cool criminal.
You speak of 10-12ft Pipe in a cadence most use to talk about a mission to the grocery store.
Today, the North Shore is beautifully unremarkable. At 70’F, sunlight pierces the palms, birds sing, and you practically levitate to your Toyota Tacoma. The wind howls, so you opt for a spring suit to kick the chill. When you paddle out, it’s 3-4ft. Then as the islands do, it jacks to a size that tests bone density.
You leave to drive home and grab the suit with the floaties. It takes 45 minutes to stretch the rigid neoprene around your limbs. You look like a nuclear hulk and feel like a concrete statue. All flexibility is gone, and your interest in paddling dies with it. *Cue the violin*
Ryan Buell partnered with JOB to make a toned-down suit perfect for 2-20ft surf. The new JOB! 4.0 Acid Wash Collection is one of the most versatile neoprenes we’ve seen on the market. The degree of stretch is + 10. The test being 10ft Pipeline and the bare hands of JOB, as seen below:
The elastic neoprene appeals to all Ocean dwellers who like mobility. The JOB! 4.0 Acid Wash collection has 1mm Oahu to 5/4 NorCal covered in Spring and Fullsuit styles with Junior sizes. For the big wave guys, there are 2mm L/S Springs and 5/4 Hooded Fullsuits with 19 removable floats.
The dark stretchy collection has arrived. Click HERE to browse the new Jamie O’Brien 4.0 Acid Wash Suit Collection.
