Powered by ongoing innovation, we continue to reinvent the O'Neill wetsuit—the original wetsuit, a game-changing invention—and design functional and versatile surf- and snow-gear and lifestyle apparel that enables our customers to enjoy their playground longer. As a brand created to enjoy nature, we see it as our responsibility to actively preserve it and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable world. Our Ocean Mission is how we stay close to Jack O'Neill's original words: "The ocean is alive, and we've got to take care of it".
