A claim no other Wetsuit Company can make. AREA 52: RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT O’Neill’s exclusive R&D facility, staffed by full time engineering, design and prototyping teams who work closely with The World’s Best Athletes to push the limits of wetsuit technology. AREA 52 allows us to hand-build and refine multiple rounds of prototypes in the same fashion that Jack himself pioneered over nearly 60 years ago. Extensive prototyping, fit checks and testing in the frigid waters of Northern California provides unparalleled insight when creating the best fitting, most functional wetsuits on the planet. O’Neill wetsuits is still located in Santa Cruz, California, the birthplace of modern cold water surfing and the proving ground for materials, features and benefits that keep you in the water longer. RIDER DEVELOPED. RIDER PROVEN.
