Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to the latest Sagas of Shred entry, where we share a fresh vintage surf ad every Thursday.
Today we’ve got the inimitable Occy starring in an ad for Peak Wetsuits. Technically this is just one half of a two page spread, but it goes without saying that Cronulla’s Finest is the star attraction here.
Honestly, I feel like I could write the entire Sagas of Shred series just based on Occy’s ads from the Eighties. Just looking at the Occ-ster cracks me up. He has a talent for looking hilariously out of place during these brand photo shoots. I can’t quite explain why but just looking at this ad makes me smile. That, of course, is to say nothing of Occ’s surfing, which remains unimpeachable.
The ad originally appeared in the June 1989 issue of Surfer Magazine (Vol 3, No 6).
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you next Thursday for more Sagas of Shred!
