UK based dive wear company Fourth Element has been showcasing a few new creations at DEMA, one of them being a new and revolutionary wetsuit named the Surface, which is made from recycled content.

The Ocean Positive wetsuit is a ‘surface suit’ designed for surface water sports, so it’s great for shallow diving or freediving, snorkelling or paddle boarding. It has been tested to a 30m depth and is 4mm at the front of the suit and 3mm on the arms.

Featuring pure natural neoprene made from sustainable latex, aqua based glue and no harmful solvents, it’s a suit for the eco-conscious diver. Particularly as it includes a 95% recycled polyester lining from post consumer plastic bottles.

It features minimalist branding with water based inks, inner ankle and wrist seals and it comes in biodegradable packaging. The price tag is yet to be confirmed, as is the on sale date.

The second newbie on show at the event is the Hydra drysuit, a non-made-to-measure 4mm high density neoprene fabric suit that features a hard-wearing outer lining for durability, and a smooth inner lining for comfort. It has a slick appearance, with a close-fitting, streamlined design.

Fourth Element told us that the Hyrdasuit is well suited for water temperatures of around -2 to 10 degrees.

The Hydra will be available in Spring 2019 for the price of around $1600 (with final pricing to be confirmed).
