Vintage Bodyglove Wetsuit

This wetsuit was only worn once by Tom Brockmiller, who decided surfing wasn't his cup of tea. His son Brandon had the same suit but wore his to pieces, and decided Surfing Heritage was a proper final resting place for his dad's suit. Both father and son are due to come by on Feb 25 to visit the wetsuit in its new home.
A recent reproduction of the original late 1960s Bodyglove ad with Mike Purpus, Robert August, Rich Chew, and Rick Irons, all wearing this same wetsuit. The new ad was featured in "Drop Zone" magazine.

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
