SALE . . . 50% OFF!  Vintage surfing magazine advertising, a warm aloha thank you from the Meistrell Family (inventors of the wetsuit and Body Glove), likely the January 1995 edition.

This is a beautiful tribute to the popular professional surfer Mark Foo, who died in a surfing accident on December 23, 1994 at Mavericks, the big wave surfing location in Half Moon Bay, Northern California. He was only in his 30s. The Meistrell family acknowledges Mark's Aloha Spirit in this public tribute. Twin brothers Bob and Bill Meistrell invented the first practical wetsuit in 1953 and changed the surfing sport dramatically. Bill passed in July, 2006 and Bob just recently passed away in June, 2013 while participating in a paddleboard race at age 84. This makes this vintage surfing advertising even more special.

This full page color ad measures 8 inches by 10.75 inches and is in excellent condition with no tears, folds or stains. It features a wonderful color photo of Mark in his Body Glove attire, who was one of his sponsors. The background is a tinted silhouette of palm trees, indicative of his native Hawaii home. The text in the ad reads:

Your willingness to share your Aloha Spirit
is something we will never forget . . .
'Thank You '

- The Meistrell Family &
Body Glove Friends Around the World

The back of the ad is pretty Cool too, shown in our detail photos.

This is a touching and historic vintage surfing magazine ad!

And, it's now ON SALE at a whopping 50% OFF!
