Team Bolt, team jacket.

While cleaning out under the house I found this beautiful, satin, Team Bolt bomber jacket that I stumbled upon a number of years ago in Hawaii. It goes perfectly with the Team Bolt twin fin and adds another layer of detail and interest to my collection, for me.
I like to imagine it could have belonged to one of the 70's Lightning bolt team riders like Gerry, Rory, MR or Margo.
Around the same time I started picking up old wetsuits from the same era as the boards from my collection. Thinking that I could surf the boards in the matching wetsuit and get the whole experience of the different eras. I found out quickly, of course, that this was a stupid idea, as stiff, heavy, second hand wetsuits are as useful as second hand food.
