WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: Rinse with cool water and drip dry out of direct sunlight

O’Neill Hyperfreak Con’s: After reading through quite a few reviews on Amazon, some size XL+ wetsuit owners claimed the suits were falling apart or letting water in. No shorty or long john in the listings.


Key Factors When Choosing A Wetsuit

  1. TYPE – Determine which type of wetsuit do you need: Chest/Back-Zip, short sleeve, or a full wetsuit.
  2. THICKNESS – Choose the right thickness for the season.
  3. SIZE – Make sure you get exactly the right size. When you have to choose between two sizes, weight is more important. O’Neill’s size chart is pretty spot on!
