Greetings, Shredderz! Today we have a doozy as part of the Sagas of Shred series, where we post a vintage surf advertisement every Thursday night. This ad is for Bradshaw Hawaii Surfboards, the surfboard label of big-wave charger and shaper Ken Bradshaw. The Bradshaw Hawaii Surfboards ad originally ran in Surfer Magazine in the March 1986 issue (Vol. 27, No. 3). The very same issue featured an infamous cover that also featured Bradshaw. Beyond Bradshaw’s impeccable surfing resume, you gotta love the matching patterns between the Hawaiian shirt and the deck of the board, not to mention what I can only guess is an air guitar pose. I’m a real sucker for the Bradshaw Hawaii logo, too.
Don’t forget to return next Thursday, where we’ll have more vintage surf ads to share with all of you fine folks. As always, thanks for reading — every visit to this humble little blog is much appreciated.
