Great thread so far!
I thought I would jump in where Evan left off and answer some questions for all of you.
The Pyro Surf
suit will be officially launched this month, after its soft launch at Surf Expo in the fall. We already have many sample suits on order with key accounts in the US, Canada, the UK, Sweden, France, Ireland, Scotland...you get the idea - real world cold water surfing countries. These sample suits will come in size Large / X-Large to start with the full size run available in the late spring.
This suit has been in the test bin for over a year and a half, exposed to the harshest conditions that the wild west coast of Canada, and Vancouver Island in particular, can throw at it and it has performed and stood up to the conditions beautifully. What is more, we already have some very exciting names in the sport using and testing the suit for us and we look forward to continuing to work with them to develop the best suit possible for cold water surfing!
- Split Skin Technology
is at the heart of this suit's design. This patented technology allows the suit to have a bone dry inner bladder that is both highly flexible and durable while being incredibly thin. The outer layer is a very durable lycra layer. This is not your wife's yoga gear
. The Lycra layer we use is specially designed to avoid ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œpillingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚
