Why Boardshop loves the Original series

Form and Function

O’Neill’s Original collection embodies what many of our discerning customers are looking for; a wetsuit designed and developed by real surfers who know exactly what is needed in performance neoprene products….everything you need and absolutely nothing you don’t at an affordable price!

Warm water at home and abroad

Hi summer in Europe and warmer water overseas requires a completely different set of neoprene requirements. If you’re lucky enough to be enjoying a good summer or heading to a warm-water surf destination then the O’Riginal warm water collection has got your back; Sleeveless 2mm vests, 2mm jackets and the Sleeveless back Zip Spring suits all offer that little bit of warmth and that all important protection from the sun and contact with the reef.

This wetsuit series was made for Surf and SUP.

European waters

The F.U.Z.E (front upper zip entry) range of men’s, women’s and kids full-suits has a wetsuit for all temperatures; 3/2mm for late Spring through to Autumn, the brilliantly versatile 4/3mm for late Autumn and early Spring (I managed to push through the whole winter 17/18 in the 4/3 here on the south coast!) and of course the hooded 6/5/4mm for the deepest darkest day s of Winter and the colder temperatures of Northern Europe.

The O'Neill Original wetsuit range also boasts some amazing winter accessories including 5 and 7mm Mittens, 5mm Lobster mitts, 3 and 4mm Gloves and some seriously warm Split Toe 3 and 5mm Boots.

Why Boardshop loves the Original series

What’s so special about O’Neill?

Best fit in the industry

It really doesn’t matter if you’re spending £60 or £260; a wetsuit is only as good as its fit! For a wetsuit to work and perform at its best it relies on a figure hugging, comfortable fit which in turn relies on clever panel design, construction and flexible yet durable materials.

O’Neill are the masters of this art and I for one have chosen O’Neill above every other brand of wetsuit for the last 25 years! I’ve tried other brands for a change but always come back to O’Neill for all my neoprene requirements.

Why choose Boardshop for your O’Neill wetsuit?

The Boardshop team boasts well over 100 years of combined wetsuit and surfing knowledge and we take pride in delivering the very highest levels of customer service and consider ourselves amongst the best when it comes to offering real advice whether it be a shorty wetsuit for a 2 year old or a high performance surfboard for a seasoned travelling surfer.

O’Neill wetsuits are THE easiest to sell; their size guide is spot on and the fit is second to none, buttery soft and flexible materials allow the wetsuits to fit almost any size and shape.

O’Neill Original Wetsuit conclusion

The O’Neill Original collection has well and truly established itself with our loyal Boardshop customers. The range is perfectly instep with the current trend for great looking; uncluttered neoprene which benefits from all the latest technical developments and materials and a great price point.

What’s so special about O’Neill?
Good value for money
In the winter sessions, staying warm makes the difference. We tried this chest zip wetsuit, hooded, with a highly competitive price, compared to other products of the category. The suit O'Neill O'Riginal has all the necessary elements of a winter wetsuit. It is not a top-of-the-line product among those in this range, which, however, have now reached an embarrassing price. Since, with 500 euros ...., I fly to and back from South Africa, I wanted to look for a good workmanship suit, but at a more reasonable price. Without, however, failing to keep myself warm, considering that I also go out in January and February, in the lakes of northern Italy, where the legend tells ... that the water is freezing .... Therefore, I bet safely on a Hooded, Chest Zip wetsuit. And I must say that the tests done so far are fully comforting my choice.
Quality Suit for 150€ 5ft9/175cm 158.5 pounds/71.9kilos Size M
Just received my wetsuit yesterday, took just over 2 weeks to arrive in the Canary Islands, which is about par for the course here (I really appreciate the free shipping BOARDSHOP!). Went for a first surf today and the suit felt great, absolutely no flushing, toasty warm for over 3 hours with quite a strong wind, air and water both approximately 21C. I know that probably sounds like a pretty warm day if you live in the UK, but I've been absolutely freezing lately, cutting my last few sessions short in my older wetsuits, and it's the cold wind that does it.

The fit and finish of the suit really seems quite good, all the seams are carefully taped with neoprene on the inside, and I can't see any weak points like I have in my current wetsuit (Quiksilver Syncro), which has developed holes in a number of poorly designed joins. The O'Neill suit isn't nearly as stretchy as the Quiksilver, but I can't say that I actually notice the difference in the water, I suspect that the importance of how flexible a neoprene is is over-rated in a 3/2, at my level of surfing anyway.

The suit's very comfortable. I really like the design of the overlapping flaps underneath the chest/head opening on the suit, they form a kind of close-fitting secondary collar that prevents any water from flushing into your suit. The zipper is also a standout for me: it's placed a touch higher up than on other suits I've worn, closer to your neck, which keeps it nicely out of the way, instead of running right across your chest. The actual zipping mechanism itself is also a good deal smaller, lighter, and less chunky than on any other wetsuit I've worn, making it less noticeable when paddling.

In terms of fit, if I were to order another, I think I'd go with an MS instead of an M. I've lost a few pounds recently and there's a bit of extra material in the biceps and armpit region, it's very subtle and not noticeable in the water, but still. In case it helps, I'm 5ft9/175cm 158.5 pounds/71.9kilos, 35 athletic build with fairly broad shoulders and back.

For the money, the suit's very good value.
ANOTHER FANTASTIC TRANSACTION
I tried to save a few quid going to another online surf shop to get seriously let down on my order days before going away surfing. I rang boardshop for assistance, not only did I receive my wetsuit the next day but I received a much better suit than the one I had originally ordered elsewhere. Great suit recommended by a great bunch of guys can't thank you all enough. If in doubt on anything in the future I'm just going to call boardshop. Seamless service!!!
O'Neill wetsuit gloves
These are great, nice and warm and like the minimal design. The palms are textured for grip and they are super flexible. I bought mine a bit too big so make sure to check which size you are!
