The Highline Airlift Vest
sets a new safety standard for big wave surfers, a CO2-powered
inflation vest, that aims to lift surfers who fall on big waves.
Quiksilver partnered with diving equipment manufacturer Aqua Lung to
develop an inflatable flotation device. A culmination of years worth of
research and development, the neoprene vest utilizes carbon-dioxide
cartridges to help bring the wearer to the surface in heavy hold-down
situations. It features four different pull tabs that inflate the vest,
one release tab to deflate the vest, and it can both be worn on its own
in warm water environments or comfortably over a wetsuit in cold weather
