In 1952 Jack invented the wetsuit, because he “just wanted to surf longer”. That passion inextricably connects O’Neill to water. As a brand created to enjoy nature, we see it as our responsibility to actively protect it and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable world. In 1966 Jack O’Neill created the Sea Odyssey to educate students on the importance of the relationship between the living sea and the environment.
50 years later, the core of our company; our oceans feel the impact of a wave of plastic. We have a mission to protect them, so that future generations can experience that same inexplicable feeling we have when we enjoy nature.
This is the inspiration for O’Neill Blue. Our Ocean Mission.
