Great article.  He accomplished so much.  Reminds me of Hobie Alter.  Both of them were such driven innovators.

Great article. Did what he loved, no mention of doing it for the coin anywhere.

House is in not too bad a spot though!

That's a lot of people. Funny enough I was down  for a surf yesterday and saw someone out in a very pronounced O'Neill wetsuit, reminded me of him.

Was in santa cruz this weekend, old surfer buddy (I am not a surfer), getting married #2,
& with several other old surfer friends. They wanted to go by Pleasure Point, stop and remember
Jack O'Neill. I listened to some great 1970s-80s stories, memories they had.

What a location and great home Jack had....
Like living above your corporation. He lived above his surf life...
Amazing location Pleasure Point is IMHO........
