Shule Going and his fiancee Rebecca Cornwall didn’t just want to start up a freediving wetsuit company.
The couple from New Zealand — which recently founded a freediving wetsuit company called Ninepin — also wanted to support ocean conservation. Going says:
Ninepin supports ocean conservation as we want to see our young ones continuing to learn and seek the wonders of the ocean. To support this we are donating $10 of each purchase to Sea Shepherd ocean conservation.
Despite freediving and spearfishing being relatively small sports in any individual area, as a whole the community is quite large and very interconnected with each other, Going adds, so to appeal to the wider market they are initially selling online only, offering free express worldwide delivery.
Ninepin’s initial product is an open-cell inside/lined outside wetsuit available in 3mm and 5mm thicknesses.
The 3mm suit will retail on the Ninepin website for $289 AUD/US$220/193 Euros and the 5mm one will retail for $299 AUD/US$227/200 Euros.
