After more than 40 years of leadership in the SCUBA industry Bob Hollis has decided to step down as CEO of Oceanic, AERIS, LavaCore & Oceanpro but remain Chairman of the Board of AUP.
Because of Lavacore's thermal and neutral buoyancy properties it is the ideal garment under a neoprene wetsuit for added insulation and warmth or as a stand alone exposure protective garment.
The unique make-up of the materials eliminates constriction and allows for extreme movement and flexibility all the while protecting and enhancing your inner core. Let your blood run freely under your skin's surface and be regulated at performance standards. Lavacore garments are ideal for any journey that your sport takes you on.
