Twiggy Baker Mavericks Contest Isurus Wetsuit Surf

IT ALL STARTED WITH A BORROWED WETSUIT

In 2006, a young Grant Twiggy Baker paddled into surfing history by winning Mavericks.
The board was unconventional and completely different from the rest of the field
as was the wetsuit.

Wetsuit Compression Technology pioneered by Isurus is the most significant innovation to hit surfing wetsuits since the invention of the wetsuit by Jack O’Neill in the early 1950’s.  The new Isurus line of surf wetsuits features Advanced Compression with Muscle Stabilization Taping and a new approach to Wetsuit Pattern Making.

WHAT IS A COMPRESSION WETSUIT

Isurus Surfing Wetsuits are designed with a compression material that helps get warm, oxygen rich blood to your muscles when it is needed most. Muscles that get increased blood flow and oxygen create less lactic acid, which allows you to:
SURF STRONG. SURF LONGER. STAY WARMER.

COMPRESSION: SCIENCE OR FICTION

It is a science.  Compression garments are known to improve performance and recovery.  Professional and Olympic athletes in all sports use them because it improves performance.  It is a perfect formula for surfing.

The panels in an Isurus surfing wetsuit are anatomically cut to match the natural movement of your body for unrestricted paddling power.  Grant Twiggy Baker Video Transcription

MST MUSCLE STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY

Surfing exposes muscles to high frequency muscle vibration.  A major cause of premature muscle fatigue.  The Kinesiology based MST developed by Isurus Wetsuits wraps and stabilizes key muscles that are stressed when surfing.

Better stabilized muscles helps improve endurance, power and helps reduce muscle strain.

TAKING WETSUIT PATTERN MAKING OUT OF THE 1950’S

Wetsuit Pattern Making Surfing Paddling

Isurus took a new approach to pattern making for surf wetsuits. Wetsuit patterns, like all clothing has always been made with the arms hanging at your side. Works great for street clothes, but for paddling it is restrictive. Think what happens when you lift your arms overhead when wearing a coat.

Isurus designed the wetsuit patterns with the arms raised overhead. Putting your arms in the optimal power position for paddling. Such an arm position minimizes resistance and gives you increased forward reach with more power and less shoulder strain.

DESIGNING THE WORLD’S BEST WETSUIT

Designing the World’s Best Wetsuit for surfing means challenging conventional thinking and approaches to improve your performance.

Innovation in almost every industry comes from outsiders. Think Apple, think Tesla. The companies that rule have no incentive to innovate. We’re not saying Isurus is in the same league as Apple or Tesla. What we are saying is Isurus is turning heads in an industry that has not seen much real change since the introduction of the surf wetsuit by Jack O’Neill in the 1950’s.
