Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ve got a doozy for you. (If you enjoy these scans of vintage surf ads, check out the entire Sagas of Shred series when you get a chance.) The ad you see below is for Lanty Wetsuits, a defunct wetsuit brand. At some point in the late Eighties Lanty had both Christian Fletcher and Matt Archbold on its roster, cornering the market on SoCal counter culture aerialists.
You can see Archbold is surfing a channel bottom T&C thruster. A few weeks back Archy had released a video featuring him surfing a channel bottom Timmy Patterson shape, although sadly it looks like the clip has been taken down.
Thanks for reading and we’ll be back next Thursday evening with more Sagas of Shred!
