From Tom...


Hi Paul,

You might already have this cover shot, but I just came across it yesterday when my wife Terry was telling me she once worked for a famous magazine publisher in the 1970s. I googled George Von Rosen (he gave Hugh Hefner his start) and while eagerly looking through a bunch of cover images from the 50s and 60s this one popped up.

Enjoy,

Tom

Tom's dedication to historical research is unparalleled! Well done, sir...

A bit off topic, but I didn't want to make a comment on the topical post from 6-months ago and have no responses.
I'm thinking of buying new swim fins. I need something between the first run UDeeTs (awesome once I get back into shape) and the Laguna Neo II surf fins I've been using. I see Duck Feet online from Sports Authority and Target and other places. I'm suspect this isn't what I want. I've been happy with the Hydro Tech fins, but lost one on the reef. I'm thinking I want something just a bit bigger than those. I'll be using these for bodysurfing, mat surfing, and flexspoon riding.
I also have wide, flat feet in size 10, if that matters.

Thank goodness for Hodgman Camp mats!

I'm conflicted. The women on those magazine covers are my mom's age! : )

Thanks for bringing that up, Dirk...

@Quiver. Brilliant use of the sexual nature of this post to get a "what fin" response. Get the latest brown/green UDTs. Now, back to business at hand. ;-)
