African surf pro Michael Thompson retired to California, but maybe retired isnt quite the right word. In 1978, Thompson founded
Gotcha, created one of the hottest surfwear clothing lines to hit the 80s. Hang Ten, Lightning Bolt, and Op had already cornered
the national market, but now it was Gotchas chance. Makers of bold
apparel from board shorts to tshirts, and even to Hawaiian shirts, Gotchas got you covered. The company grabbed attention
with its bold graphics style and assertive image. The famed fishman logo, created by artist Jay Viagon, remains one of the
companys most recognizable in a slew of visually dynamic campaigns and logos. Gotcha was also one of the first surfwear lines to expand into a girls line, GirlStar. After the explosive surf scene
of the 80s, surfing began to fade in favor of snowboarding, skateboarding and other extreme sports. Girls stepped in to put
surfing back in the spotlight for the 90s. GirlStar updated surfwear with a new sexy freedom. Gone were the oversized tshirts
and plain baggy shorts of yesterday. Wildly-patterned, body-conscious tops and hip-hugging cargo pants became the new wave
of surf fashion.
