Greetings, Shredderz! I’m currently writing this update from the road. As some of you may know, every Thursday night I’ll select a vintage surf ad and upload it as part of the blog’s Sags of Shred series. Unfortunately, I have been on the road the past few days, which means I don’t have any new scans for this week. For now this bitchin’ Rainbow Fin Company ad from 1974 will have to suffice. I’m not sure where I found this originally — maybe Swaylocks? — but either way, it’s a rad look at the beautiful vintage fins Rainbow Fin Company was producing in the Seventies. Rainbow is still alive and kicking, and still located in Santa Cruz. I’ll always love the beautiful fiberglass fins of the Seventies, and hopefully this Rainbow Fin Company ad does a good job of explaining exactly why that is.
Thanks for reading and tune in next week for more Sagas of Shred!
