The Yamamoto Neoprene Wetsuit You Can Afford

Feral Wetsuits and the direct-to-consumer wetsuit game

We live in a golden age of wetsuits. Your shallow pockets have only a measley $180 to spend? That’ll still buy you a super-stretchy budget suit that’s ten times better than the brittle, leathery rubber suits that would have been the best thing around 15 years ago. Got $600 for a new suit? Well, now,

The Freshness of Surf Fashion

A walk through the ages in surf couture

Surf fashion unquestionably peaked in the early ’60s.

After Geiselman was held under for a massive three-wave set, bodyboarder Andre Botha spotted a clearly-in-trouble Geiselman drifting rapidly through the impact zone toward the violent Ehukai shorepound. Botha got to Geiselman and kept
