Salty seadog Jack O’Neill opened his first surf shop in a San Francisco garage back in 1952, and his trademark O’Neill wetsuits followed not long after. The cold water waves of NorCal were the perfect place to develop and improve performance surfing wetsuits, and the company is still doing just that to this day. Truth is, O’Neill have damn near perfected the surfing wetsuit, mind you they’ve had 65 years to do it.
Whether you’re just starting out in the waves or you’ve been shredding your local break since you were a nipper, there’s an O’Neill wetsuit for everyone. Different levels of performance, different price points, designs for men, women and children, O’Neill has it all, and that’s why the O’Neill wetsuit range is unbeatable. Here are just a few of the different wetsuits currently available from one of the oldest surf companies in the world.
Let’s kick things off with the , O’Neil’s entry-level performance surfing wetsuit that offers the best value with the best tech.

It features the FluidFlex Firewall to lock your body heat inside the suit, and the engineered fit of the Lumbar Seamless Design provides awesome flexibility, particularly around the paddle zones of the arms and shoulders.

Now to round things up it’s time to look at the , for the surfer who simply won’t accept any substitutes! All the latest O’Neill innovations and advanced wetsuit tech are crammed into this wetsuit, including their trademark Front Upper Zipper Entry (that’s what F.U.Z.E. stands for).
