80s Surf Style

80's surfers were a bunch of day-glo clad faggots. Nothing is more stupid looking than a surfer pumping a thruster in knee-high slop. About the only good thing to come out of the (late) 80's was the return of the longboard.

That's what happens when things like surf leashes become necessities.No one swims anymore,some body surfers even leash their fins to their ankles.Fortunately,not all good spots have a parking lot attached and are beyond the exertion horizon of many of today's " surfers".

"some body surfers even leash their fins to their ankles"

Fin savers will save your life in heavy surf and have been around for as long as I remember. We used to use shoelaces to tie our fins to our ankles in the 1950's. Not every break is like the kiddie pool and the turbulence in a double-O impact zone can rip the fins right off your feet.
