TBT: Cover Shot for International Surfing 1965

January 29, 2015

bingCover1965
In December of 1965, International Surfing’s cover story was “The Signature Model Era” and featured manufacturers (seated) with their top surfer-shapers. Left to right: Donald Takayama and Bing Copeland; Harold Iggy and Dewey Weber; Phil Edwards and Hobie Alter, Mike Doyle and Don Hansen; Mike Hynson and Larry Gordon. Jackets, ties and hard shoes presumably suggested a more “professional” phase in the sport and industry. Although you have to love Takayama crushing the fur coat for the shot.
