Advocate Apparel Inspired by the largest fish in the sea, the whale shark (Rhincodon typus)

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are fish, not whales - allowing them to hold the esteemed title of "largest fish in the sea" (since sharks are fish too!). These charismatic creatures can reach lengths of 12 meters (40 feet) or more! Despite their large size, they feed on some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton. Hanging vertically in the water column they're able to suction feed and filter these tiny organisms through their gill rakers much like a giant vacuum cleaner pulls dust and dirt from a kitchen floor, filtering the fragments into its chamber within.

Unfortunately, approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans, through direct targeted fishing efforts as well as unintended bycatch from other fisheries. The whale shark is one species of shark that is particularly vulnerable to this commercial fishing due to their high value in international trade, in addition to their highly migratory nature and normally low abundance. Research into the lives of these gentle giants can help us to manage their populations and keep these magnificent fish in the ocean where they belong.

“Waterlust's support provides critical seed funding for us to rapidly develop and implement whale shark conservation projects in areas where this globally-endangered species is most at risk. This includes Mozambique, where our research and awareness work helped the government decide to fully protect whale sharks just a few weeks ago. We love working with a company that is so committed to making a positive change in the world.”

Love, love, love!❤️

Loved my new Waterlust gear! So comfortable, soft, and warm. It also did its job to protect me from the sun. While the water was warm, I didn’t need my wetsuit which was new for me as I normally wear a wetsuit with a skin anyway. The boat captain called me Whale Shark all week 😂 Many of the other guests on the boat said they had suit and leggings envy when I wore my Waterlust. 💜Thank you for such a great product and supporting an equally great cause! #whaleshark #bviaggressor #waterlust

Sandra Ilijin (Landau, RP, DE)

Amazing products
Great quality and fitting
Only customs ends up too expensive for europe
Instead of just VAT 18% they charge also some tax on goods and in the end it ends up 38% to pay on customs for the product which is too much

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! So glad you are enjoying your new gear. Yes, we wish our international customers did not have to worry about customs or VAT fees! Unfortuatnely, this is something we do not have control over. For future purchases, you can use an import calculater (like this one https://www.simplyduty.com/import-calculator/) to get an idea of what the import tax might be. Thanks again for your feedback!

So Incredibly Awesome

This suit is fantastic and sleek! I can’t wait to jump in the ocean! The materials that made the suit fill my heart with joy! Love it so much!

Just the right amount of support!

I have been looking for a suit with good support and now I want one in every design! It's not so thick it's uncomfortable but thick enough that it gives me some support, protection and support. Also bonus I'm pretty tall and it's not too short for my torso or arms! Absolutely obsessed!
