The Billabong Revolution Natural 4/3mm surfing wetsuit incorporates advanced materials to enhance performance while minimizing environmental impact. Key among these is Yulex, a sustainable alternative to traditional neoprene, derived from the guayule plant. Yulex offers eco-friendly benefits such as reduced carbon emissions, minimal water usage, and hypoallergenic properties, ensuring a comfortable and environmentally responsible surfing experience.


  1. Sustainability:  Yulex is a natural, renewable resource, making it a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional neoprene, which is typically derived from petroleum. By utilizing Yulex, Billabong reduces its carbon footprint and dependence on finite resources.

  2. Reduced Environmental Impact: The production of Yulex generates significantly lower CO2 emissions compared to conventional neoprene. Additionally, cultivating guayule plants requires less water and land compared to traditional neoprene production, further minimizing environmental impact.

  3. Hypoallergenic: Yulex is hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for individuals with sensitive skin or latex allergies. Its natural properties ensure a comfortable and irritation-free experience, even during prolonged use.

  4. Performance: Despite its sustainable credentials, Yulex doesn't compromise on performance. It boasts excellent stretch, durability, and insulation properties, providing the wearer with superior comfort and unrestricted movement in the water.  From its early use from other wetsuit brands, Yulex wetsuit materials have made significant improvements in performance where it now competes with even the most flexible traditional neoprene

In addition to Yulex, the wetsuit features a Graphene thermal interior lining. Graphene, a highly conductive and lightweight material, revolutionizes wetsuit insulation with its remarkable properties:

  1. Superior Thermal Efficiency: Graphene's exceptional thermal conductivity enables it to distribute heat evenly throughout the wetsuit, effectively trapping and retaining body warmth in cold water conditions. This advanced insulation technology ensures optimal comfort and extended surfing sessions, even in the coldest winter condtions.

  2. Lightweight and Flexible: Despite its impressive thermal properties, Graphene is incredibly lightweight and flexible, allowing for unrestricted movement and agility in the water. Surfers can enjoy amazing performance without feeling weighed down or restricted by bulky insulation.

  3. Quick-Drying: Graphene's rapid heat dispersion facilitates quick drying, ensuring that the wetsuit dries quickly between sessions. This is especially great for surfers surfing more than once a day so the inside of the wetsuit should be dry to touch rapidly between sessions
