O’Neill Ltd Edition 52-
Was kinda weird when we found out the Psycho 3 wasn’t part of the group of suits we were testing at the Tracks Wetty Test – almost disappointing to be honest… But the suit they sent, the O’Neill Ltd Edition 52-12, was more then capable of getting me excited again.
Why? Technobutter. Have you heard of it? It’s a dreamy super soft material that is ’20% lighter and absorbs 30% less water, and looks and feels different to any other rubber on the market’. What it is, is amazing. It’s got a combed look that makes you feel like Superman or whoever your Super Hero is, don’t say Penguin.. Seriously tho, it’s extremely soft against the skin, slippery to pull on and off and warm. An ideal full suit for anyone surfing in Sydney and north…
The 52-12 doesn’t have that time honoured double Super Seam hit that the Psycho’s have – it’s only got one and it’s on the outside and it’s bright blue. You kinda feel like TRON. But the 52-12 is a pretty rad suit, TRON jokes aside, it’s real warm, super flexi and I’m a fan of the entry system – possibly the best I’ve used.
The 52-12 is all part of the 60yr celebration for O’Neill (yeah, they been round a while) and is only available in limited quantities. For more of what the other testers thought about it, head over to the Tracks Rubber Room.
