Few brands can speak of authenticity and legacy like O'Neill can. Every time we feel the warm embrace of rubber against skin, when paddling out in the depths of winter, that's down to Jack O'Neill. Almost 70-years-ago, Jack created the world's first wetsuit and its invention and popularity has changed the face of surfing forever.

With all that experience behind them, it's no wonder that O'Neill continually pick up awards for their suits. Lineups across the globe are dotted with the HyperFreak model, which has become a strong household name for the brand, much lauded by surfers and ocean-goers alike. Right here, we're going to run down this season's pick of O'Neill's suits, get into their features and what all that experience looks like.
