Vintage Body Glove

It fits on the body, like a glove. It's a Body Glove. Body Glove was the creation of twin brothers Bob and Bill Meistrell, both dive and surf fanatics. California transplants from Missouri, the two siblings were born for the water. In 1953, before surfing got popularized by beach movies like Gidget, the brothers were partners in a dive shop called Dive N Surf. But the waters of northern California could be cruel, cold and icy. As avid cold water sportsmen, the boys sought to create an insulating suit that could protect both divers and surfers from the freezing waters. A refrigerator insulator, neoprene, was determined to be a suitable material, and the boys were in business. Their Thermocline suits went into production, but Thermocline wasnt a catchy name. The laid back lifestyles of the dive/surf scene wanted flair and fashion, not science. So after a reconsideration, the name gave way to the obvious: their new wetsuit fit like a glove on the body, and so it became known as Body Glove. When the 60s surfing scene hit from shore to shore, Body Glove rode the wave in on the backs of surfers. The wetsuit became a necessary accessory to the surfer, and Body Glove was it. Their logo, a bright yellow circle with a stylized linear drawing of a hand, said it all: bold, bright and bitchin. In the 90s, Body Glove expanded into neoprene bikinis for the girls, in sexy neon colors and with zippered tops. These bathing suits were the hottest (and coolest) on the beach, and the yellow circle with the hand remains a major surfing label in a sea of competitors.

Attention: With many surfboards from the 60s to 80s selling for $500 - $10,000 or more.  Vintage surfboards are a great investment.  Being 2015, anything 25 years or older is now an antique. Boards older than 1983 are skyrocketing in value.  Do you know what’s happening? 80's boards are now collector’s items, not just used boards for sale.
