classic wetsuit ads

logging meets echo beach, 1982
tonight Matthew we're going to be..........
Gul does stars in their eyes, choreography by Alex

Nigel hangin' loose at the stubbies


Now I am loving the style here, Paul Basford's perfect white suit and channeled OM singlefin. No flies on him !








Second skin delves into soft porn ...another of their ads involves a topless lady horse rider. Must have shifted a few suits ! Colin Wilson focusing hard on something unstimulating.












selection from Atlantic Surfer late 70s. Nice Tris in the foreground and kneeboard on the far left.


You don't see ads like these anymore - in some cases for good reason; but back in those days suits definitely had a bit more individuality, and you could spot a mate a mile away in the surf - especially Paul Basford.
