Surfing with Bobby Hull

Check out this ad for Jantzen sharkskin swimwear from 1966. That's Bobby Hull with Jerry West and Frank Gifford. Who knew The Golden Jet could surf?

Careful Bobby, surfing nearly cost this former Pittsburgh Penguin his career.

Joe, I love the photo and I remember the ad! It makes my case about Bobby and that physique of his. Frank Gifford, a football player almost looks frail compared to the "Golden Jet"! There was an article I read in my high school library ( mid 1960's)in Life magazine or the Saturday Evening Post or some other magazine about Bobby's physique being studied at Harvard medical school or some other college and other athletes were looked at and Hull won. Wish you could dig that info up. Greg
