ASB MAGAZINE: Surfing Western Australia is pleased to announce a new and exciting partnership with Volte Wetsuits. First established back in 2013, Volte Wetsuits has roots that run deep in WA and the brand has a clear focus on creating the finest wetsuits for surfers around the world. The multi year partnership will see Volte Wetsuits secure the naming rights to the WA Surf Masters Titles, WA Longboard Titles as well as supporting many of WA’s marquee surfing tournaments held throughout the State.
In addition to supporting events and competitions, Volte will also supply wetsuits to Surfing WA’s Surf School at Trigg Beach, which services over 30,000 learn to surf participants annually.
Volte has recently signed Hawaiian Sebastian Zietz, the 2016 Margaret River Pro winner as well as supporting an array of big wave riders, ex tour pros, local performance surfers, longboarders, alternative surf craft riders and shaper/surfers.
Working very closely with a diverse group of surfers around the globe, Volte put their wetsuits through rigorous testing in different climates and conditions.
“We recognise that WA is the perfect testing ground for our products and Volte Wetsuits are stoked to partner with Surfing WA and their strong commitment to the development of the surfing community in Western Australia,” said Patrick Leahy Volte’s Head Product Designer. “Surfing WA have always helped push and provide opportunities for some of the country’s best riders across all categories.”
Combining superior technology, science, design, expertise and testing, with decades of experience, Volte Wetsuits is committed to providing the best materials and sustainable production methods as well.
“We are always working on using more eco-based materials – real stuff, not gimmicks,” continued Leahy. “We use Aqua Alpha-laminating adhesives, a water-based glue that reduces solvents by 600 grams a wetsuit. We also use limestone-based foam, and recycled fabrics wherever possible.”
The partnership with Volte and Surfing WA begun this year and will extend through until the end of the 2021 competition season.
“We’re stoked partner with a quality manufacturer like Volte who will bolster our extensive events program and support the largest surf school in WA,” said Surfing WA Events Manager Justin Majeks. “We look forward to working with Volte and assisting them in bettering their products and building their squad of surfers.”
The Volte Wetsuits WA Surf Masters Titles and Volte WA Longboard Titles will both commence in February 2020. For more information on these events or any surfing events held within Western Australia be sure to check out www.surfingwa.com.au
