Patagonia just unveiled a gamechanger for the surf industry, a wetsuit that swaps out the neoprene construction for FSC-certified natural rubber. Created in partnership with Yulex and the Forest Stewardship Council, the new environmentally-friendly wetsuits offer the same performance as a traditional neoprene suit without all the non-renewable material. The wetsuits will come in six different varieties for varying temperature levels from 75 degrees all the way down to 32 degrees. The suits are now available in North America, Europe, and Japan.
