I haven’t written much about Gordie Surfboards before — in fact, I’ve only featured one post on Gordie in the brief history of this humble little vintage surfboard blog. I don’t know that much about the label, either, other than it was once upon a time a well-known brand based out of Huntington Beach, in the heart of Orange County’s surf scene. In the meantime, though, enjoy this Gordie Surfboards ad that appeared in Surfer Magazine in 1963. I love how these early ads often featured Walker Foam logos, which means they pre-date the infamous Clark Foam hegemony.
Thanks for reading and tune in next week for Sagas of Shred, where we feature a cool vintage surf ad every Thursday evening.
