HISTORY OF BODY GLOVE
Body Glove started with the name Dive N’ Surf and was founded in 1953 by brothers Bob and Bill Meistrell on the golden coast of California. It was there that they found Rubatex, a strong adhesive, and created the first commercially viable wetsuit using neoprene. Following suit, they also made the first commercial custom wetsuit and the first wetsuit sizing chart, now used universally by every wetsuit company. Body Glove is truly an innovative company that spanned decades – from prototypes of inflatable dri-suits, experimenting with different style zippers, the first neoprene swimsuit, the first forays into surf fashion, and much more. Today, they are still setting records. In 2011, Body Glove team member Garrett McNamara broke the World Record for surfing the biggest wave.
