Video by @FransLanting with @ChristineEckstrom and @Gilholmer Tap the screen for sound. Thousands of surfers paddled out from a Santa Cruz beach into the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary last Sunday to honor Jack Oโ€™Neill with many thousands more watching from the cliffs around Jackโ€™s house overlooking Pleasure Point. It was a moving tribute to the man who was a pioneer of the wetsuit, which enabled many millions of people to plunge into the ocean to experience our blue planet for themselves. Jack passed away recently at the age of 94 after a life well lived. Many of us in Santa Cruz were touched by his spirit and scores of kids benefitted from his efforts to advance the cause of ocean education. Thank you fellow Santa Cruzans for coming together. Follow me for more images and stories about our living planet.

Today was the Celebration of Life Paddle Out for Jack O'Neill at Pleasure Point in Santa Cruz. He invented the wetsuit because he wanted to stay out surfing longer... that's passion! ...(slide on this one there are 10 photos total) The 'black dots' are hundreds of surfers in the ocean forming a circle around #oneillseaodyssey sail boat. They splashed the water in unison.. blew a surf heat horn.. the coast guard did a fly by.. it was INCREDIBLE ๐ŸŒŠso many people were there... complete LOVE vibe.. Thank You Jack O'Neill ๐Ÿ’™ ..#ripjackoneill, #pleasurepoint, #santacruz, #jackoneillmemorialpaddleout, #oneillusa, #girlssurf, #paddleout, #awesomeday, #mrspalmerswax, #surfrider

Today, our community says farewell to a local legend and brilliant man, Jack Oneill. I didn't know him personally, but have most definitely appreciated what he created- the neoprene wetsuit. He made it possible for water lovers around the world to enjoy their favorite activities in cold water with greater comfort and safety. He also founded the Oneill Sea Odyssey Foundation, which continues to educate and inspire young people about the ocean and oceans conservation. Rest In Peace, Jackโค๏ธ You are a true #localhero Photo credit: Santa Cruz Sentinel.

Forever innovating, forever moving forward. With almost 100,000 students educated about the importance of the ocean, it all started with Jack wanting to give back. To honor Jack's legacy you can give a memorial donation by clicking the link in our bio! #jackoneill.

Summercampers doing a beach clean-up this morning are earning their ride on the odyssey for the afternoon! OSO is free but requires the student group to do a community service project for access to the program aboard. Talk about supporting a good cause! Go to oso100k.org to learn more.

The Ocean Is Alive! ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ‹For real- it provides over 50% of the oxygen we breathe. If the ocean is sick, then so are we. We have to take care of it.

Every OSO class earns their lesson on the boat by doing a service project. Yesterday this OSO class from the Nueva Vista community center picked up trash from Sea Bright Beach with @saveourshores and learned about the importance of having plastic free oceans!

Using sharp eyes, we discover new things every time a crew of students embarks on the O'Neill catamaran. Sea otters munching, kelp canopies afloat, pelicans gliding, even a pod of dolphins are some of the many sights to see around the bay. Looking at sealife on a screen indoors cannot compare to seeing these marine wonders with your own eyes. Join us and see for yourself!
