Vintage Tube Riding

Tube riding was one on Jon's specialties, designing his own custom wetsuits was another. Jon surfed on Rip Curl's Jalipeno team for 5 years before Oneill. Jon was at the fore front of wetsuit design and had all his Rip curl wetsuits hand made, hand stitched, and custom fit in San Clemente, CA for an extra 15 dollars. Jon was known for his flamboyant style and was copied by many back then.
