In 1952 Jack O'Neill invents the world's first wetsuit and O'Neill was born! By the end of the twentieth century, surfers were riding waves in some of the most remote cold-water corners of the world – places like Scotland, Tasmania and Canada – in the dead of winter. Jack O‘Neill made that possible with the invention of the wetsuit, which started as a bathing suit stuffed with foam sheets and morphed into the hightech, super-stretch neoprene suits of today. In 1952 Jack O'Neill opened his first surf shop in San Francisco and O'Neill soon became the ultimate surf brand.
Today, O'Neill has the most hightech and functional wetsuits in the world, in different styles and colors for all ages. Our wetsuits are lighter, warmer, more insulating & dry quickly. From full wetsuits to spring wetsuits, from preschool to adult wetsuits, choose the wetsuit that fits your style and stay warm in the sometimes cold seawater. Besides selling wetsuits, O'Neill has all kinds of wetsuit accessories like surf boots, that are designed with an attention to detail. These boots protect your feet in the cold seawater and feel like you're standing barefoot on the board. The O'Neill surf hood regulates your body temperature in the cold sea water & ensures you that your head stays warm with unique Thermo layer interior. You can also find the latest O'Neill surf gloves in our online store. These are specially designed to regulate your body’s core temperature and will keep your hands warm in the cold water.
