If You’ve Always Dreamt Of Wearing A Volcom Suit…
They’re made of Yamamoto Neoprene, designed by Feral and are worth every penny.
It was with slight confusion that a box of Volcom Wetsuits arrived to our Airbnb in San Francisco.
One, the Volcom suits didn’t make their way into the test until Thursday.
Two, not one of our surfers had any inkling that Volcom made a suit for the everyday (wo)man.
Three, two of our wetsuit models have head-to-toe clothing sponsors and wearing the wetsuit seemed to go against their contracts.
Because, in the past, the stone ridden arm, leg and chest plate were reserved for their team riders. They were constructed by some outside neoprene manufacturer, and wouldn’t be seen on any individual who wasn’t at the very least apt in the art of the consistent air rev.
So, we opened the box. Pulled them out and thought, “Hmm, Volcom?”
“They make wetsuits?” Blair Conklin chimed in confused from the kitchen.
“Apparently,” said Noah Wegrich.
“Shit, I don’t think I can wear that,” concerned Jesse Guglielmana, who works as Brixton’s clothing designer and also rides for them.
“I’ll wear it,” said Noah, who is currently, and quite unbelievably, without a sponsor. “Fuck it, maybe I’ll get a shot in it and they’ll be like yeah we should give that dude a bunch of money,” he laughed.
Slipping into the Volcom Deadly Stone 3/2mm is a pleasure. As we’ve said before and will say again, you really can’t go wrong with Yamamoto Rubber, plus the suits are back-zips designed by Feral (who won the award for the sexiest suits on the market) with Volcom Stones down the arm.
They’re cozier than a campfire. They look good. And, if you’ve always dreamt of walking into the water repping youth against establishment across your slick skin, shop Volcom’s first step into the every(wo)man’s wetsuit realm, here.
