As the world traverses through time within its natural ebb and flow, the transitory threat of climate change remains ever-present. Whether or not its elements have been overtly affected by mankind is a moot point, but one thing’s for sure: we need to take a step back to reevaluate our approach. Instead of dwelling in intellectual purgatory, companies like Vissla and the Surfrider Foundation have spent their time preparing for the future — an uncertain era that’s been made a bit more palatable, thanks to the Rising Seas Wetsuit.

To fight back against the threat of pollution, ocean acidification, climate change, and fossil fuels, Vissla and Surfrider have joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind wetsuit to face environmental degradation head-on. With the industry’s most influential, and prolific, minds at their back, the companies have introduced a set of innovative technical characteristics into the traditional surf garment, including an adaptable built-in Bio-Defense System to fend off bacteria, algae blooms, and viruses from the world’s oceans. This fully-encapsulated suit features a handful of cutting-edge attributes, like a wireless heads-up display and LED mask made with a high-grade LCoS optical-level coating, and a touch screen control panel to monitor radiation, swell, temperature, and toxicity via the suit’s built-in nanosensors. Information on the Rising Seas Wetsuit is scarce, but you can head over to the company’s website to learn more on October 23.
