Oneill Mens Hyperfreak Wetsuits are lightweight and highly stretchy wetties. In terms of stretch, Hypefreaks are perhaps the best value for money in Oneill's premium wetsuit range - these suits have to be felt to be believed. We feel this because it boasts the top-tier TB3 & TBX materials but is a hundreds bucks cheaper than the Psycho range because of the seam. The Hyperfreak range uses a glued and blind-stitched seam, which is the most common seam found in high-quality surfing wetsuits. GBS seams are sewn with a hooked needle to eliminate pin-holes and are then reinforced with an elastic glue that seals and stretches.
TechnoButter 3: Oneill's ultimate material is a market leader in stretch, one feel and you'll know. Furthermore, it's their warmest and most lightweight neoprene - everything you expect from a top-range suit.
TB Firewall: Oneill's technobutter firewall is present in much of the Oneill Psycho panelling. It increases thermal retention by trapping tiny air-bubbles in the fibre-weave, an idea borrow from sea mammals like seals.
Zipperless, Chest Zip & Back Zip Options.
GBS Seams: Oneill have been strong proponents of removing all stitching from a wetsuit as it's one of the least stretchy components. They achieve strength and durability, without stitching, but by triple-gluing the panels together. Of course, this is completely sealed against water but the no-stitching equates to more stretch!

Smooth-Skin Neck Gusset: The inner lining of the neck is a highly elastic yet tacky smooth-skin material - this achieves a greater neck seal but also reduces neck abrasion/rashing.
Woven Kneepads: A durable weave that ensures greater durability around your knees.
