Many surf brands are just names made up in a marketing department but O’Neill is the real thing.  Jack O’Neill still resides in a beachfront property in Santa Cruz, California where he has lived since 1959. Credited with the invention of the wetsuit (“it’s always summer on the inside”), he opened his first surf shop in a garage in 1952.

Today O’Neill is synonymous with surfing culture and all that’s good about the sun, sea and sand. Countryside Ski & Climb has a great range of their fantastic surf shorts and lifestyle clothing for men and women – so come and grab a bit of summer for yourself.
