Greetings, Shredderz! Have I got a curveball for you: here’s an ad featuring legendary surf rebel Christian Fletcher in a spiffy black tie getup. It’s a pretty dramatic departure from Fletcher’s reputation as a tattoo covered, mohawk sporting, chainsmoking anti establishment figure. But hey, Fletcher cleans up nice! This ad originally appeared in the June 1989 issue of Surfing Magazine (Vol 25, No 6).
Thanks for reading and check back in next Thursday night for more vintage surf ads as part of our Sagas of Shred series.
