Wacky Wetsuits - An Occasional Series

Surfing tries to sell everything but fortunately, not everything sells. Now that Beach Bum has installed his bookshelves, he has been busy restocking the library.

I can't throw anything out and flicking through some old magazines I spotted this Tiki beauty from a Wavelength edition dated March/April 1992.

The blurb alongside the ad reminded us that "Tiki has been in rubber since 1972" and that "our Professional designers, salesmen, staff and owners are all actively involved in surfing - surfing has always been in our roots. Tiki - a SALT WATER LEGEND. " We were urged to "check them out - there is NO ALTERNATIVE!"

Clearly the Tiki team were sniffing too much neoprene adhesive at work and going home to watch Dr.Who.

Exterminate, exterminate, exterminate!
