The history of O'Neill is the history of wetsuits. The world's very first wetsuit came about in 1952 thanks to a man named Jack O'Neill, the founder of O'Neill. Ever since, for over 70 years, O'Neill wetsuits have been at the forefront of wetsuit design.
Surfboarders, windsurfers, divers, and a whole lot of other marine adrenaline chasers have been doing their thing for decades thanks to O'Neill and their pioneering technology. Take a look through our range of O'Neill wetsuits below.
There is a good reason why O'Neill wetsuits are so well-loved and trusted around the world by everyone from enthusiasts to professionals. With a perfect combination of stretch and durability, their wetsuits allow you to perform in the water to your maximum ability whilst also holding up against the elements. Abrasion-resistant and ergonomically shaped, these wetsuits offer premium comfort and protection.
Boots, gloves & more
We also have products in stock beyond the core range of premium wetsuits. This includes O'Neill boots and gloves. Their boots feature robust, watertight seams, giving you the sturdiness that you would expect from the very best in the game. Their gloves are similarly strong and comfortable, whilst you can also pick up some wind-resistant and sun-protecting sports caps too. Also, make sure to check out the O'Neill high-vis buoyancy aid, which is complete with a safety whistle and a comfortable head support collar.
O'Neill has an ethos that guides all they do: that life is good and should be enjoyed in an ethical and responsible way. This informs the way that they go about creating their products. Their founder Jack was one of the early figures who from the 1950s onwards was spreading awareness of the fragility of the natural environment. In 1996, he established the O'Neill Sea Odyssey program, which is still going to this day, to educate the world about marine ecology. Furthermore, through the O'Neill Blue Initiative, they are constantly refining their processes so that their products and operations are ever more ecologically friendly. O'Neill, having beaten all their eco targets in the last 3 years, are aiming to use 90% sustainable materials to make their products by the end of 2021.
