When it comes to staying warm after surfing or just looking stylish and different from the norm, the Wetsuit Centre has some of the best clothing products from the surfing industry’s leading brands. Surf wear originated from the beaches of Australia and California in the early 60's. Surfers had their own lifestyle and identity and the clothing they wore was very much born from the beaches. Soon, wetsuit brands started to venture into the clothing market with basic surfers tee shirts. At the forefront was Billabong & Rip Curl who were born on the beaches of Australia and these soon became worldwide best-selling surf clothing brands. The range and styles exploded in the 90's and even made the fashion catwalks of Paris. Since that time, the clothing ranges and popularity has reduced back to its original roots of surfers needing board shorts and tee shirts. O’Neill at the same time was making its mark on the beaches of America, again born from the inventor of the surfing wetsuit Jack O’Neill. He opened the first surf shop selling wetsuits and basic O’Neill tee shirts.
