70s surfers Jack Shipley, Rory Russell, Reno Abellira & Gerry Lopez, aka Mr. Pipeline, were all instrumental in laying down the rebel vibe associated with the lifestyle. Which seemed to spontaneously adopt as its symbol the Lightning Bolt.

Surfer Jonathan Paskowitz is bringing it back in limited release, reproducing it "to the exact shape of those worn by the great surfers and revolutionary game changers of Hawaii's North Shore."
