Last year, big wave surfer Shane Dorian took the worste wipe out of his life. “It was terrible. I got held down for two waves, I almost drowned. I had an idea to incorporate an air bladder, like an airplane vest, that inflates immediately. So I wrote an email to Billabong’s wetsuit designer, Hub.” – Dorian

Check out Shane and Hub’s invention. This could have come in handy during the massive tow session at Teahupoo.

Billabong’s wetsuit was featured on our favorite tech blog, Gizmodo.
