In 1952 Jack O’Neill invents the world’s first wetsuit and O’NEILL was born! By the end of the twentieth century, surfers were riding waves in some of the most remote cold-water corners of the world – places like Scotland, Tasmania and Canada – in the dead of winter. Nowadays, the core of the company; the oceans and the waves feel the impact of a wave of plastic and the brand has a mission to protect them. This inspired the Ocean Mission, O’Neill Blue: to contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable world.
With O’Neill Blue, the brand wants to decrease its environmental footprint on the planet by focusing on creating a broad range of sustainable products. Their O’Neill Blue Line includes products made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon.
