late 80s surf fashion

 This is what your average surf dude was wearing back in 1987 in the UK. Nice ! Darren Potter and Grishka Roberts by John Conway's Porsche.
Some of you may remember some of these garments from your wardrobes back then - but do any still linger there now !? I admit to a pink Billabong long sleeved t , which gets worn a bit, but rarely out of the house ! Back in the day we seemed to wear a lot of pink, which seemed normal for the time , and I was proud of my florescent orange Gul wesuit !
 This Wavelength shoot shows clothes by some of the top UK surf labels - Alder, Gul, Tiki, Wave Grafitti, Wavekraft and is a blast from the flourescent past .



 Grishka sporting a fine Wavelength jogging suit . One step away from a onesie.
Some famous local names in the Quiksilver team 1986 . Check the boards, all plain thrusters under all the decals, but still pretty thick. The era of artwork was out, the era of stickers had arrived.

    just dug out our 1984 Fosters surf master t-shirt with Newquay 1984 on the back, never been worn. Brings back happy memories!
