Here we are introducing feedback provided by the official Okinawa Blessing ambassadors, Mariko Kaji, who is also a widely known professional freediver.
I was using another bland before.
The material was hard and easy to be compressed because of water pressure and I needed to buy new one every year.
It was not easy to find the one which was fit me as well.
It was European brand ,so too tight around my chest with Medium size and too long with Large.
I also used Japanese bland once, but I broke it many time because it was too sensitive.
Every time I broke it, I needed to fix it by myself.
The first time I use Okinawa blessing wetsuit, I was so surprised for softness and elasticity.
Every time I use it, the material is getting fit my body gradually and I feel so comfortable even I’m in deep.
I heard the secret is comes from the special pattern of the material that experienced artist found.
I’m asking special offer for the one I use for competition.
To prevent water from coming into wetsuit, I asked them to make little tight, and wide some parts that I move a lot.
It was bit bigger than I was expected the first time I did special order, but they fixed it so quickly.
Okinawa blessing is a small company so they can accept my requests in detail.
Fabric made in Japan, technology, and handmade makes it possible to make each suits according to needs of each person We challenge the record using something that can be worn with trust since it is a sports diving alone.
