On Sunday 9th July 2017, O’Neill UK would like to invite you to join in a paddle out and celebration of Jack O’Neill’s life & adventures at Great Western Beach in Newquay.

From Santa Cruz to Cornwall, O’Neill will honour the legacy of Jack with numerous paddle outs worldwide simultaneously. For the UK edition, O’Neill ask those that are wishing to pay tributes to the pioneer of the wetsuit to meet at Great Western Beach from 6.30pm, in the water at 7pm.

Great Western Beach is thought to have been the UK’s original surfing beach and a was a popular hangout of the inaugural surfers of the 60s. Following the paddle out, everyone is invited to the Slope Beach Bar for light refreshments.

Please feel free to spread the word of the paddle out to friends and family, and we hope to see you all in the water on Sunday!
