Advocate Apparel Inspired by tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier)

Tiger sharks are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as “Near Threatened”, and thus, research, education and outreach is essential to ensuring healthy populations. As one of the ocean’s largest predators, these critical species sit at the top of the food chain, helping to regulate the delicate balance of populations of those beneath in the ecosystem. Decreased populations can result in trophic cascades, impacting the abundance and behavior of other species lower on the food chain.

Multiple research methods have shown that some species of sharks have declined in population by 90% or more during the last several decades in areas where they were formerly abundant. These declines are due to direct targeting in commercial fisheries, mostly for their fins and sometimes meat. Additionally, sharks are often caught unintentionally as bycatch in many other fisheries, caught and killed in some recreational fisheries (unlike catch and release), and may also be impacted by humans more indirectly through threats like habitat loss, pollution, and human-driven declines in the fish species sharks rely on for food.

"We are so proud of our collaboration with Waterlust. Not only does their support help enable our shark conservation research, but the apparel itself is a walking billboard for marine conservation. I love it when people on the street stop to ask me about my tiger shark board shorts. It's an opportunity to start a conversation about the wonders and perils faced by sharks and how the average person can help make a difference.”

Best suit ever!

The high neck, thumb holes, quality construction and fit are absolutely the best. Not to mention the super customer service. Only negative is cost otw we’d own more of their products.

I love my alter-ego suit. It fits beautifully, and the quality is stellar. Can't wait to sport it with the tigers!

Excellent coverage

I wore this suit diving in Bonaire, not only did it provide excellent sun protection but also provided excellent protection wearing a BCD and other gear while diving if not using a wetsuit. I highly recommend this swimsuit, the fabric is perfect and it washes beautifully and keeps it shape.

I love this suit

It is well made, thick material, comfortable. Size up if you are worried it may be too small, fit is snug.

AMAZING!

My new go-to favorite for free diving and paddle boarding. This suit is comfortable (long torso approved) , flattering (big booty approved), and easy to zip up, even by yourself (I was worried about this as I’ve had other suits that were next to impossible to get zipper all the way up by yourself.) For reference, I’m 5’8, 185lbs; I ordered an XL and it fits perfectly.
