O'Neill Wetsuits truly has a path all their own. During my research for this article I discovered that the founder of O'Neill, Jack O'Neill, died earlier this year at the age of 94. I found myself thinking, what a life to have lived, to be a surfer and to create a world wide brand within the surf industry. What a legacy, it's said that Jack O'Neill was credited with creating the first surf Wetsuit. It's hard to fathom having such a profound impact on the surf industry, yet here we are, talking about Jack, his invention and the company he founded. Read on.

Needless to say, O'Neill has been making Wetsuits for a very, very long time. They created the surfing Wetsuit, they inspired others to follow in their footsteps and they have been innovating since the moment O'Neill was founded. Currently they have one of the best selling high end Wetsuits in the surf industry with the PSYCOFREAK. If you're looking for warmth, flexibility and comfort, this Wetsuit has it all. Available in both a 3/2 and 4/3, there's a model for the water temp. you'll be surfing and don't worry there's thicker hooded version in the PSYCOTECH if you're looking at some seriously cold water.

Another thing I was wondering when preparing for this article, is "what is it about O'Neill Wetsuits that makes them stand out?" Yes, they've been around since the beginning, but that in and of itself doesn't keep you around, you have to innovate. That's when I decided to look at their Wetsuits and find the innovation, because I knew it had to be there and as expected, it was. With O'Neill, it seems to me that the rubber they use and the placement if their stitching is key. They're doing things in both these areas that no one else is. Some of their Wetsuits use an air-insulated, rapid drying rubber that is more flexible and warmer that anything else we've seen. When you combine that with stitch placement that further increases flexibility, reduces paddle fatigue and increases cold water drainage, the result is one insane Wetsuit.
