Airbag Inflatable WetSuit for Surfers

If you think keeping your head out of the water is easy, you should talk to people like Shane Dorian, big wave surfers that often are forced down under gigantic waves - hoping they'll somehow be able to resurface before they drown.

Not wanting to go without a fight, Shane contacted Billabong to see if they could create a wetsuit that could be instantly inflated and bring him to the surface should anything happen.

This wetsuit is still being tested, by I figure it won't be too long before it will be commercially available and a big life-saver (literally) to lots of people facing the ocean in their daily lives.
