    Feels true to size

    I bought these after trying surfing for the first time, an experience that made me realize that long board shorts actually have a use besides excess modesty.  Unfortunately, I haven't had another chance to surf yet but I used them to wear on a kayak/hike/snorkeling excursion on a cruise.  They were great for that because I didni't have to change: could wear them on the van  trip, in the kayak,  on the hike, and in the water. By the time we were ready for the van ride back,they were dry.  The material feels awesome: very supple, lightweight, quick-drying and really moves with you.  My waist size is anywhere between 30 & 32, depending on the garment, and I tried 29, 30 & 31 in these before settling on 30.  The waist feels very secure, certainly a plus for surfing, and they can be worn low if you like that look. While it looks like this model will be discontinued, it's worth looking for the fabric in other O'Neill models. Can't really go with a 5-star until I try them for surfing though.

Jack O'Neill began surfing in 1952, before functional surf apparel was invented. While working for the Army Air Corps, O'Neill discovered neoprene foam in a DC-3 airplane. He then combined the neoprene carpeting with duct tape to create the first neoprene wetsuit.

Demand for O'Neill's neoprene wetsuits grew rapidly and he began a business selling the O'Neill wetsuits out of his garage. By 1980, he was a leader in the beach apparel industry with a thriving business. Since then, O'Neill™ has become a widely recognized and respected brand in the surf industry, continually creating new and innovative products. In addition to O'Neill wetsuits, they carry O'Neill boardshorts, O'Neill dresses, O'Neill hats, O'Neill rash guards, O'Neill swimsuits, O'Neill water shoes, O'Neill sandals, O'Neill life jackets and O'Neill t-shirts.

In addition to his business success, O'Neill also created a non-profit foundation for kids. O'Neill developed the O'Neill Sea Odyssey Program: a free, educational cruise that introduces kids to the microbiology of the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, beginning at Jack O'Neill's doorstep.
