Style Eyes & Santa Cruz

Anthony Ruffo

Greetings, Shredderz! For today’s Sagas of Shred entry we’re featuring an ad for Style Eyes, a defunct sunglasses company. The ad you see below originally ran in the February 1990 issue of Surfer Magazine (Vol 31, No 2).

I see Anthony Ruffo, mean-mugging and holding the yellow Taylor board. I’m pretty sure that’s Peter Mel to the far right of the ad, wearing the lime green shorts. And is that Barney to the left of Mel? I honestly can’t tell, nor can I identify any of the others. If you have some info please let me know. Every once in a while I’ll make the drive down to Santa Cruz to surf, and I’m always struck by what a beautiful beach town it is.

Thanks for reading and we’ll be back next Thursday with more Sagas of Shred!
