Back in 1952 Jack O'Neill pioneered the first neoprene wetsuit
in the unforgiving waters of Northern California.
Soon after, he opened the very first "Surf Shop" in history. 60 years and
countless industry firsts later, O'Neill's commitment to leading innovation
continues stronger than ever. Researching the best materials, developing
the latest in feature benefits and challenging the world's best athletes to
put them to the test in the harshest conditions imaginable
