Quiksilver x Aqua Lung Highline Airlift
Performance safety

Game-changing innovation for a new generation of big wave surfing

Safety, re-imagined

A new generation of big wave riding demands a new generation of water safety. That’s where the Quiksilver Highline Airlift comes in. A culmination of years worth of research and development, the neoprene vest utilizes carbon-dioxide cartridges to bring the wearer to the surface in heavy hold-down situations. It’s an innovative product designed for innovative surfing at the world’s heaviest waves.

QUIKSILVER x AQUA LUNG

Aqua Lung is the undisputed global leader in scuba diving equipment. When we decided to develop an inflatable safety vest for big wave surfing, they were an easy choice for partnership.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Late nights. Early mornings. Countless hours and an absurd amount of tests. That’s what the Highline Airlift is made of — because you can’t afford to take chances on a product like this. Quiksilver’s big wave riders and Innovation Team spent two years collaborating with Aqua Lung engineers to make this idea come to life. Every last detail was considered, refined and innovated.

Our test team is the heart of this project. We’re extremely privileged to have had a group of individuals with peerless knowledge, talent and experience to draw from during the past two years of intensive testing.

SAFETY STARTS WITH PREPARATION

Preparation doesn’t mean stretching on the beach before you paddle out. It doesn’t mean checking the charts or getting all your stuff together the days leading up to a swell. True preparation means dedicating years of your life to surfing waves of consequence. But, once you’re ready for it, Quiksilver’s Airlift has your back. It’s designed to keep committed big wave riders safe in the conditions that they live for.

For Any Wave, Anywhere

The Airlift is made with Quiksilver’s best-in-class Highline neoprene and can be worn over the top of any wetsuit, or as a standalone vest. That means you stay safe at any wave, anywhere, regardless of the water temp.

4 Inflation pull tabs, 1 Deflation pull tab
The Airlift features four separate inflation tabs in considered locations on the chest for the ease of inflation in the hardest of times. A deflation tab is located away from the inflation tabs to reduce the risk of an accidental inflation.
Oral Inflation
The vest features an oral inflation valve so that you can partially inflate the bladder and save CO2 activation for emergency use. This creates a pocket of floatation while your paddling and maneuverability remain unaffected.
