Scarce reference to womens surf wear from 83, it’s interesting, a lot of main stream brands today (t&c, O’Neill, Rip Curl etc) were only making boards back then so it’s a bit of an alternate universe. Of course, boards back then were still made by hand by famous builders, so there are some stunners, and most of the clothes are fairly unknown, with a few handmade examples.
