    Wakesurfing in a O'Neill Drysuit

    Fall is in the air and that means the lakes and waterways are getting less crowded and the water is glass. These are all great, except for one small thing... the water gets cold, really fast. Don't get left at the dock because you weren't prepared for the dropping water temps. Check out the O'Neill Boost and Assault Hybrid Drysuits and get ready to extend your season indefinitely.

  • Tech Tuesday #1: O'Neill Boost Drysuit Technical Overview

    Welcome to our first official Tech Tuesday! Each week we will choose one question from a customer and post the answer on our blog. You can join in on the action by emailing your technical questions to sales@wakemakers.com with the subject: Tech Tuesday, or hit us up on social media with the hashtag #WMTechTuesday.

    O'Neill Boost Drysuit Technical Overview

    The O'Neill Boost is by far the most popular cold-water wetsuit or drysuit we stock at our warehouse. The versatility and warmth make the Boost popular among wakeboarders, kiteboarders, and water skiers. We get a lot of questions from customers asking about the difference between the O'Neill Boost and some of the cheaper competitors suits. Here's our in depth answer as to why the O'Neill Boost can't be matched in terms of value and performance.

    3-Layer Nylon Shell O'Neill Boost

    Nylon Shell

    The Boost is made with a 3-layer breathable nylon shell that is abrasion resistant and extremely durable. The fit is similar to that of a jumpsuit or baggy pants and jacket. This added room gives you great mobility, a comfortable fit and lots of room for layering clothes.

    • Lightweight, Breathable Nylon Membrane
    • Completely Waterproof
    • Baggy Fit

     

     

     

     

     

    O'Neill Boost Fully Taped Seams

    Fully Taped Seams

    O'Neill goes the extra step and fully tapes all of the seams on the Boost Drysuit. This is a special waterproof tape which is added to the inside of all the seams in the Boost drysuit. The fully taped seams make the Boost completely waterproof, so you can rest assured that you're clothes will stay warm and dry underneath your suit.

    • Every Seam is fully taped for waterproofing
    • Provides greater durability

     

     

     

     

     

    O'Neill Boost Neoprene Neck Seal

    Neoprene Neck

    The Boost features a chafe-free smooth skin neoprene neck seal that is similar to a wetsuit. Most drysuits come with a latex neck seal which can be uncomfortable, and hard to get on and off. We recommend *rolling down the neck seal for a more comfortable fit.

    *See the image for an example.

    • More comfortable than a Latex neck seal
    • Easy Entry and Exit

     

     

     

     

     

    O'Neill Boost Back Zipper

    Back Zipper

    The popularity of the Boost drysuit among wakeboarders and kiteboarders is due in part to it's unique back zipper design. By placing the zipper from shoulder to shoulder it stays out of the way and makes the Boost much more mobile than chest zip drysuits.

    The horizontal back zipper is also relatively easy to get on and off. We recommend using *wax on the outside of the zipper and zipping it back and forth a few times to help lubricate the teeth before you put it on for use. It is possible to zip and unzip the drysuit by yourself but we recommend having someone else help you out if possible.

    *Each O'Neill drysuit comes with a wax stick or lubricant.

    • Heavy-Duty Design
    • Easy entry and exit

     

    O'Neill Boost Adjustable Suspenders

    Built-in Adjustable Suspenders

    Built-in suspenders allow you to quickly and easily adjust the fit and hang of the drysuit. This makes the Boost a great option if you are looking for one drysuit to fit multiple riders.

    • Re-inforced nylon panel mount area
    • Quick click-in and click-out
    • Stretchy suspenders

     

     

     

     

     

    O'Neill Boost Wrist Seals

    Extra Thick Latex Wrist Seals

    The wrist seals are made from extra thick latex material. They are extremely durable and they provide a water tight seal. Unique O-Rings around the wrist seals provide another water tight barrier and make the seals more comfortable.

    •  Water Tight Seal
    • Durable

     

     

     

     

     

    O'Neill Boost Ankle Seals

    Extra Thick Latex Ankle Seals

    The extra thick ankle seals provide a durable and water tight fit without being uncomfortable. O'Neill's latex ankle seals are almost 2x as thick as some of the other brands wakeboard/waterski specific drysuits. O-Rings provide another level of water proof integrity and increase the comfort of the seals.

    • Water Tight Seal
    • Durable

    Another reason why the O'Neill Boost has quickly become the most popular watersports drysuit is the Limited 1-Year Warranty. If you have any issues with the seals or breathable nylon membrane they will repair or replace your drysuit free of charge.

  • O'Neill Drysuit Buying Guide

    oneill-wetsuits-brand-page_1

    Drysuit’s are a must have for those of us that don’t live in climates that stay warm year around. These suits are designed to keep you warm and comfortable in cool water conditions. They are especially great because you can extend your season way beyond what you ever thought.

    WakeMAKERS.com carries two different drysuit styles from O’Neill. The O'Neill Boost Drysuit is a full membrane drysuit that keeps your body completely dry. The second drysuit is the O’Neill Assault Hybrid Drysuit. It features a membrane top and a neoprene bottom, so you can layer your upper body but your legs are only covered with a 3MM neoprene.

    We get emails and customers all year long about which drysuit is the best option for their riding style and water temperatures. So we decided to put this guide together to help people figure out what drysuit will be the best option for them.

    First, let’s go into more detail about each drysuit.

    O'Neill Boost Drysuit

    The O’Neill Boost Drysuit is a full baggy membrane drysuit so you stay completely dry except for your feet, hands, and head. I’ve gotten out of my car in 50 degree water and put on the Boost and taken a few wakesurf sets without changing out of my jeans and sweatshirt. Once I finished I unzippped the drysuit and hung out on the boat… completely dry! This is a huge selling point for a lot of our customers. If you are sensitive to the cold or just want to be able to extend your season the O’Neill Boost is simply the best cold water option there is.

    Key Features for the O'Neill Boost Drysuit

    -Fully integrated suspenders allow you to easily adjust the "hang" of the drysuit

    -Horizontal dry zipper

    -Neoprene neck which is much more comfortable than traditional rubber seals

    -Completely dry

    O'Neill Assault Hybrid Drysuit

    The O’Neill Assault Hybrid Drysuit is a membrane and neoprene suit hence the hybrid name. This suit doesn’t keep you quite as warm as the Boost but it does have some other noticeable benefits. First off, the Assault has a bit less drag because it’s not a full baggy suit. For this reason the Assault Hybrid is very popular with competitive waterskiers and wakeboarders. If you are riding in 55+ degree water temperatures year round the Assault might be a better option.

    Key Features for the O'Neill Assault Hybrid Drysuit

    -Removable ankle cinches provide the option for a range of users in the same size suit

    -Wetsuit constructed lower body cuts down on drag and eliminated excess material

    -Baggy upper allows for layering

    Both the Assault and the Boost come with a Limited 1-Year Warranty on all defects. If for some reason you have an issue with your drysuit O'Neill will repair or replace it free of charge.

    Drysuit Accessories

    Keeping your core warm is essential to having a fun time out on the water, but a lot of times people overlook the importance of keep your extremities warm and comfortable as well. We carry a large selection of O'Neill Hoods, Gloves, and Booties that are designed to keep the rest of your body warm during your cold-water excursions.

    O'Neill Heat Ninja ST Boot 3MM $32.95

    O'Neill DL Psycho Glove 1.5MM $46.95

    O'Neill 3MM Coldwater Hood $46.95

  • O'Neill Wetsuits, Drysuits, and Wakeboard Vests Just Arrived To The Warehouse

    Oneill Wakeboard Wetsuits Drysuits

    We are very excited to introduce the O'Neill Wetsuit brand to our growing list of partners that support the lifestyle we live at WakeMAKERS.com. The climate in Central Oregon demands the best when it comes to wetsuits and drysuits. Everyone at our shop has been getting extensive use out of their O'Neill Wetsuits this season. With our ice fed water and brisk air temperatures we have the ultimate testing ground for what works and what does not. If it weren't for the O'Neill Boost Drysuit we would not be able to start riding in March and end in November. Being able to layer clothing under the suit keeps us on the water as long as we can stand being in the boat.

    2014 Oneill Gooru Wakeboard Comp VestAlthough the O'Neill brand is known for their neoprene craftsmanship, their vests are industry leaders in both design and safety. The O'Neill Gooru Wakeboard Comp Vest pushed the limited of what was possible in the impact vest market. On the US Coast Guard approved side, O'Neill has been able to built upon the Reactor series year after year tweaking and improving every detail. I have told many friends that there is not a better USCG vest for the money.

    For 2014 we are fortunate to deliver the O'Neill Slasher Wakeboard Comp Vest. This is the most technologically advanced wakeboard vest we have ever seen. The new Nytrolite Foam is lighter weight, more buoyant, and absorbs less water meaning O'Neiil can use less foam overall. The Slasher will be the most comfortable impact vest you will wear this season.
