The O'Neill Wetsuit Clinic features our full line of 2015 Fall/Winter wetsuits. All of these suits were designed and built by O'Neill's Area 52 R&D facility.
What is Area 52?
AREA 52: 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 sixty 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. Over 60 years and countless industry firsts later, O’Neill’s commitment to leading innovation continues stronger than ever.
Trevor Gordon worked with shaper Ryan Lovelace to create four weird iterations of a finless surfboard. With nothing but curiosity and intuition guiding them, the boards were made with radical asymmetrical lines coming to a pointed tail on the toe side. The following is a showcase of Trevor's trials with each board.

When Lewie Dunn mentioned that he wanted to head to Indonesia and spend the dry season chasing surf, Temple shaper Jye Byrnes flooded him with questions... "What kind of waves will you be surfing? What style of boards do you want to be riding? Have you told your girlfriend yet?"
Lewie had a whole list written before he'd even registered the girlfriend question.
In the mix of boards that came as a result of their rendezvous were - a 5'0 split-keel fish - a 5'7 diamond tail quad - a 6'1, 5-fin bonzer - a 6'3 channel bottom single fin - and a 9'3 single fin log. He must have a large board bag.
Anyway, Lewie had been surfing all over the archipelago selecting the right boards for the right conditions, when he thought, why don't I try ride them all in one day? And so he did! This fun little clip details his day spent paddling out and surfing in. His day spent changing boards and screwing and unscrewing fins.
Lewie's surf turned into a kind of marathon (it being much harder physically than he had expected) but damn, doesn't it look like fun?
