The O’Riginals Ocean Shorts are where it’s at this summer. Make your choice for its killer patterns and colours, knowing you’re getting the best of O’Neill’s cutting-edge technology too. The highest quality DWR (Durable Water Repellency) hyper drying performance finish available is applied to the fabric which speeds dry time and maintains a lighter weight boardshorts. Don't lose your keys at the bottom of your bag or in the sea! Attach them to the key loop and they're always to hand. The very oceans and waves that created O’Neill are under threat from a tsunami of plastic waste, with an estimated 8 million tons flooding the world’s seas each year. This tragedy is the inspiration for the O’Neill Blue Ocean Mission, an initiative to produce sustainable surfwear using high-performance eco-threads by Bionic, which contain recycled beach plastic.
In 1952 Jack O'Neill set up a small surf shop on the shores of San Francisco. Despite none of his friends believing in him, he went on to build the world's leading wetsuit company in just a few years. It just goes to show - if you want something bad enough don't let anything hold you back. We truly and wholeheartedly identify with this story as it rings so close to home with Blue Tomato being built up in much the same way.
