Greetings, Shredderz! It’s Thursday evening here in sunny California, which can only mean it’s time for Sagas of Shred! Sagas of Shred is the weekly series that features a new vintage surf ad. Today we have David Nuuhiwa representing the venerable Body Glove brand with incredible style and panache. Look at that mane! And that looks like a front zip team issue spring suit, which is a style move for far more advanced practitioners than yours truly. I’m also drawn to the twin fins. The one Nuuhiwa is holding has some laminates I don’t believe I have ever seen before. The board on the ground, meanwhile, has some rad Body Glove logos on the fins. The Body Glove ad featured here originally rain in the August 1980 issue of Surfer Magazine (Vol 21, No 8).
Thanks for reading and we’ll be back in half a fortnight with more vintage surf ads for your reading pleasure!
