“If You Don’t Surf, Don’t Start. If You Do Surf, Never Stop.” A bold 1988  ad by Gotcha surfwear that helped define surfing’s aggro attitude during the Reagon years. Gotcha was the vision of Backside Charging, Free Ride-starring, cocaine-loving innovator Michael Tomson. The Breuer brothers unpack the radical life and times of Michael Tomson, as written about in the  Encyclopedia of Surfing’s Sunday Joint on July 12th, 2020.
