We may not need these wetsuits in Hawaii…but we may need ‘Graphene’

Regardless, we wanted to share some good marketing & “infomercialling” (our own word) with Griffin Colapinto & Billabong…Colapinto’s classic, Billabong Iconic.

And he does share a breakthrough (2019).

One of many to come with Graphene…?

Will surfboards be next? SNN


Graphene has been considered a ‘miracle material’ since its discovery and sounds more like science fiction than reality. Made up of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal pattern like honeycombs, it’s not only the thinnest material in the world, it‘s also one of the strongest. Compared to steel, for example, graphene is two hundred times stronger; it is also harder than diamond. One square meter of graphene weighs less than a milligram and is a million times thinner than a sheet of paper. Due to its physical structure, graphene has unique properties that exceed anything previously used in wetsuit technology. Graphene heats up faster and stores this heat much longer than other inner linings, offering optimal thermal properties. Another advantage of the two-dimensional construction is its high flexibility and stretch. Besides, the extremely strong carbon bonds make the material extremely robust.
