The most trusted name in the water since 1952.
O'Neill, the original California surf, dive, wake, snow and youth lifestyle brand, was founded in 1952 when a young man named Jack O'Neill took his unstoppable passion for surfing and used it to beat Mother Nature at her own game. Pioneering the first neoprene surfing wetsuit, Jack had successfully found a way to extend his surf sessions in the bone-chilling breaks of Northern California. He opened up the garage doors to his first surf shop in Santa Cruz soon after.
FOR OVER 60 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN COMMITTED TO DEVELOPING AUTHENTIC FUNCTIONAL DIVE PRODUCTS WITHOUT EVER RESORTING TO GIMMICKS OR HYPE.
Fit is the cornerstone of wetsuit performance. A proper fit is the single most important factor in purchasing a dive suit, as a poor fit will nullify any other performance feature. Over sixty years of building wetsuits has allowed our engineering team to develop the most precise system of size grading in the industry. This technology is carefully guarded in the vaults of our Area 52 testing lab, but is now available to all by simply trying on one of our dive suits. We dare you to compare.
