The Sharkskin™ brand was founded in Australia around 20 years ago by the owners of Neptune Sports who were looking for a way to keep divers warm during and after their dives. Sharkskin is the original and best provider of technical watersports apparel, offering a neoprene free solution that is sunproof, windproof, splashproof and chillproof. What more could you possibly need!
Starting out just looking for solutions for divers, Sharkskin now leads the way in offering apparel for all watersports. Embracing the latest fabric technologies and a focus on providing high quality products, Sharkskin set out to improve the in water experience for all of their customers.
Their patented designs were an industry first, their designs having been imitated but never matched in terms of performance. The technology used to create their three layer material consists of a hollow fleece layer sitting next to the skin, middle ‘technical’ membrane layer which is completely windproof, yet allows the skin to breathe, and complemented by an outer layer made with a nylon and lycra blend which is abrasion resistant, has 4 way stretch, UV resistant and has a durable water repellent finish, providing a protective outer layer that sheds water.
Sharkskin offer a range of products to suit your diving and water sports needs, neutrally buoyant and flexible they can be used alone or layered with wetsuits. Many users confirm that once they have used Sharkskin protection, they would never be without it again.
