To journey off the beaten track, get lost, and to recreate our own path is all part of what we dream and aspire to do here at Adelio.
The name 'Adelio' is referenced from the Spanish word meaning 'noble'. The notion of nobility is reflected through the story and ethos within the Adelio brand and our relentless pursuit of the 'Noble Quest'. Defined as many things, the Noble Quest in short is the undeniable urge to discover and immerse ourselves in hidden gems of solitude, allowing our adventurous spirits to take charge as we strive for rare moments of bliss.
We have a strong belief and ideology that a brand can be more than something that is worn or used, but can shape an individual - from the inside out. Pairing these principles with an undeniable passion for adventure, plus form and function has helped to create and continually influence this ever-evolving brand.
Based along Australia’s Mid North Coast in the town of Cabarita Beach, Chippa Wilson has established himself as one of the most explosive and innovative free surfers on the planet.
When he's not circling the globe hunting various waves and moments of solitude, you'll more often than not find Chippa at home on his ranch, fishing by the lake, or tinkering on his grease machines. A humble guy with a humble lifestyle, Chippa encapsulates the essence of Adelio and the #noblequest.
Chippa is an honest-to-God freak… Now, I mean that in the best way possible. He’s one of the most naturally gifted board-riders I’ve ever seen, yet his approach is completely unorthodox. It’s almost as if they mixed up the unlikely pairing of a skitzed out cat with a contemporary dancer, and it somehow turned out a treat. Fast, energetic, acrobatic and graceful, Chippa is a surfer with an impeccable ability to read a wave. I believe he sees the wave in front of him differently to everyone else. This is something that has always kept me fascinated and engaged as a photographer. Being one of the most consistent surfers in the world, when shooting with Chippa, I have to stay on my toes at all times.
A guy unique in his appearance and personality, Chippa is a switched-on character and seems to have an endearing cleverness about him. On a personal level, I find him interesting and I can also appreciate the many interests and hobbies he has outside of the normal stereotypes associated with surfing.
100% QUAD FLEX LIMESTONE NEOPRENE
Adelio’s 4-way flex limestone neoprene allows for ultimate strength and mobility serving as a much needed alternative to traditional petroleum based neoprene. This unique combination of lightweight limestone neoprene has less impact on our environment while also offering maximum warmth, flexibility and stretch in the water.
BEVELED-EDGE SEALS Adelio’s unique beveled edge seals help prevent flushing through the wrist and ankle openings. This creates a seal that helps water flow seamlessly over the entry points, avoiding any penetration into the suit.
Adelio's unique Therma-loc ‘quad-layered’ internal lining is flexible and soft against the skin. The light-weight, quick-drying grid allows the body to retain the heat it’s generated while wicking moisture away, keeping you drier and warmer for longer.
WELDED & GBS SEAMS.
Adelio’s welded, glued and blind stitched (GBS) seams reduce sew through and water entry to keep you warmer. This light and flexible seam sealant provides an added watertight reinforcement following the body's natural curvature.
Adelio’s anatomical, performance-focused design helps maximize flexibility with ergonomically placed seams and structured paneling. Countless hours of meticulous design and sampling ensures we develop ever-evolving solutions to achieve ultimate comfort while minimizing weight and drag in and out of the water.
