Henderson Aquatics was founded by business partners Everett Edmund and Patrick Madison. Both men had also been partners in the marine industry. Shortly after World War II the US Navy concluded it no longer required diving service and sold off its entire inventory of Mark V diving suits to Edmund and Madison as surplus. A short time later the Navy reversed its position and reinstated dive services. Several years later SCUBA diving began to become popular and the partners identified the need for thermal protection. “Henderson” the business and brand was soon formed and named after the Henderson boatyard located in Port Elizabeth, NJ where the original wetsuit factory was located. Early wetsuits were sold primarily to Scuba divers as a “build it yourself” kit. The kit contained a roll of Neoprene, a pattern and a bottle of neoprene cement. As more divers opted not to construct their own suits Henderson began producing and shipping ready made suits to its customers.
In 1974 a glue pot in the factory caught fire and the Henderson factory burnt to the ground. Everett’s son Allan joined the company shortly after the fire to help rebuild Henderson and recover from the disaster. Everett Edmund patented the original zip on wetsuit which became standard issue by the US Navy and US Coast Guard.
The company which was now under Allan Edmund’s direction expanded its product range and focused on innovation and design. The company was the first to recognize women in diving by creating a full line of suits that offered color and style and soon appeared in the pages of magazines such as Elle and Cosmo. Wetsuits were now viewed for style and fashion and no longer just function.
Legendary guitarist Jerry Garcia of “Grateful Dead” fame was an avid Scuba Diver and soon collaborated on a Garcia Signature line of Henderson wetsuits. The Garcia line included a new “Trilaminate” neutral buoyancy material developed by Henderson. During the 1990′s Henderson expanded into markets outside the Sport Diving market, producing it’s first line of surfing wetsuits called “Surf East”. Surf East sponsored such legendary surfers as Baron Knowlton, Todd Holland and Peter Pan. Henderson also produced the first wetsuit used for Triathlon competition in 1990. The suits were called Speedsuits and sold under the Triumph brand name. Henderson further expanded its brands to Include “Neo Sport” a value line of thermal protection products.
Henderson greeted the new millennium with continued product innovation. Henderson Introduced Gold Core Technology, (ultra warm skin -in wetsuit) Hyperstretch (the first ultra stretch wetsuit) Microprene (.5mm wetsuits) Insta Dry (the first wetsuit that dried inside and out in minutes) Hyperflex Wetsuits a new surf brand emerged in early 2002 with a renewed focus on the surf wetsuit market.
Henderson’s continued expansion and innovation continues to propel it’s brands into the future. Henderson, Hyperflex and Neo Sport are now part of the Henderson Sport Group. The group of companies remains focused on Thermal protection and innovation and development of neoprene products.
The Henderson Sport Group today is based in Millville, NJ just a few miles from the original Henderson Boatyard where the company was founded. The company brands are distributed worldwide and it remains focused on Style, Performance and Product innovation.

Hyperflex by Henderson Scuba Gear Reviews
|Hyperflex by Henderson 2mm Amp Low Top Reef Surf Boots Reviews
Reviewer:Kirk Wingeron7/24/2011Comfortable and Great Fit - These boots are comfortable and easy to get on and off, but once on they are very secure and would not come off in heavy surf. Because of the strap and buckle on the dorsal surface of the boot I would not recommend these for diving and using with a fin. I am concerned with the relatively thin sole that with continued use on an abrasive surface they will wear through. I have only had them for a couple months and I use them 3-4 times a week and Im about to wear through the sole at the highest pressure points (big toe and ball of foot). I recommend these boots, but consider your activity.
|Hyperflex by Henderson 3mm Access Titanium Surf Gloves.. Reviews
Reviewer:Stephanie C.on1/6/2014cold weather gloves - I bought these gloves for delivering newspapers in the freezing cold. Theyre awesome. Keep my hands warm in the coldest weather. The only con is that once theyre on, they need to stay on till Im done. They dont come off and go on easily, especially once my hands warm up and are sweaty. I got a pair for another newspaper carrier.
