Iron and bronze brought the Stone Age to an end. Steel linked our coasts to railroad tracks. The silicon semiconductors created computers that spread information like nothing else in history. Technology is the driving force behind civilization’s progress. We don’t claim that Billabong’s new suits are changing the world. But unlike other wetties this year, graphene is a technological advance. It’s the thinnest and most heat-conductive material on Earth. It is found in all billabong wetsuits linings. Why graphene? Because graphene makes you more comfortable, quicker, and lasts longer. To make eco-conscious smart foam, they also recycle old car tires. Scroll down to see the details. It’s not the Stone Age, bud.
