Quiksilver Japan Designs a Business Wetsuit for the Office
Board meetings in the waves just got a little closer.
These days, the man is forever on our case, constantly tying us down, and the simple thought of sneaking out for a lunchtime paddle falls into the too hard basket. Well, thanks to Quiksilver Japan, they have come up with a solution that boarders on an April Fools day prank, but also raises hope of one day working out in the surf like Kelly Slater does.
In partnership with a local ad agency (yes, there can't be true innovation without an ad agency behind it), Quiksilver Japan have developed True Wetsuits, high spec waterproof wetsuits that “can be worn from home, to the beach, and from the beach to the office with no need to change at all.” The suit jacket and pants, which are made from 2mm neoprene material come in a range of black and blue and also features a tuxedo (combining partying & surfing). Prices start from 300,000 yen ($3330 NZD), and include 3M developed shirts and ties, while the video also features a cellphone protector and pen, which apparently isn't for sale, but shows that the Kelly Slater dream is not too far away for those old salty office dogs out there.
