Neosport is a division of Henderson Aquatics, which was founded by business partners Everett Edmund and Patrick Madison. Everett Edmund patented the original zip on wetsuit which became standard issue by the US Navy and US Coast Guard. 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.
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.
