Big wave riding for a select gnarly few could be for anyone. A concept from product designer Jeabyun Yeon could potentially allow anyone to tame the largest of XXL rides.


Fear of drowning may well be a thing of the past, the future is on our doorstep. Strapping one of these Triton 'Gills' securely to your wetsuit could allow the user to stay submersed for several minutes, perhaps even hours, as monstrous wave after monstrous wave passes over head. Simply unstrap and breathe.

The ideas don't just stop there. This James Bond style re-breather could allow wave schools to safely crop up all over the world. Where centre owners may have feared drowning from over confident students, they could soon provide them with a short re-breather lesson prior to sending them out-back, when over head high bombs are dropping in.

For the elite, it could potentially allow them to go for it with a complete 'no-holds barred' attitude. Pushing the level of big wave riding to not just new heights but to new levels of difficulty.


What do you think? Would a re-breather make you feel more confident or do big waves scare the cr@* out of you anyway? Let us know in the comments below... and yes we have noticed how the future looks strangely familiar to a pair of bike handlebars attached to a diving regulator, but would you get one?

How It Works


It is a very convenient oxygen respirator concept that allows us to breathe under water for a long time by simply biting it. It also does not require the skill of breathing in and out while biting mouthpiece like conventional respirator.

  • Triton uses a new technology of artificial gill model.
  • It extracts oxygen under water through a filter in the form of fine threads with holes smaller than water molecules.
  • This is a technology developed by a Korean scientist that allows us to freely breathe under water for a long time.
  • Using a very small but powerful micro compressor, it compresses oxygen and stores the extracted oxygen in storage tank.
  • The micro compressor operates through micro battery.
  • The micro battery is a next-generation technology with a size 30 times smaller than current battery that can quickly charge 1,000 times faster.

Triton is a 2013 sadi product innovation studio project.
