Quiksilver x Aqualung Highline Airlift
The high point of wetsuit technology

Introducing the next generation in big wave technology

Concept

Developed in collaboration with Aqua Lung, the global leader in professional and recreational scuba diving equipment, Quiksilver x Aqualung Highline Airlift is the culmination of two year’s development and represents the cutting edge of big wave surfing safety technology. Worn over the top of any type of wetsuit or as a standalone vest, it is a reinforced neoprene inflatable vest designed to rapidly bring the wearer to the surface in a heavy hold-down situation.

QUIKSILVER x AQUALUNG

When Quiksilver Inc. made the decision to develop an innovative vest, Aqua Lung was the natural partner, being the undisputed global leader in professional and recreational scuba diving equipment.

R&D AND FIELD TESTING

Quiksilver x Aqualung Highline Airlift is a result of two years of research conducted by Aqua Lung engineers in their Californian laboratory, carried out in collaboration with the Quiksilver Product Innovation team and its big-wave riders. The long collaborative process of studying the jacket’s structure, in-depth development of materials and in-pool durability and reliability testing pushed the boundaries of innovation to bring about this final product.

At the heart of the project is our test team: we’re extremely privileged to have a core team of testers with peerless knowledge, talent and experience to draw upon during the past two years of intensive Real-World testing.

THE HIGH POINT OF WETSUIT TECHNOLOGY

Developed in response to the growing demands of surfers seeking to increase personal safety in big wave, high-risk surfing environments, Quiksilver x Aqualung Highline Airlift brings unique features to stand as a safe, reliable technical surf vest for modern-day big wave athletes.

Neoprene surf vest

Designed to be worn as a standalone vest, or over a wetsuit. This has various benefits: it is versatile, easy to remove, easy to reload, and comfortable.

Oral Inflate/Deflate Tube

4 Inflate pull tabs - Manual Inflation System
Inflate the vest in an emergency. Designed to help surfers reach the surface faster and with less physical exertion than without a vest. Inflate pull tabs are located in a separate location from the deflate pull tab to reduce risk of accidental inflation or deflation.
