Topanga Bombers Surf Club reunion T-shirt, 1991


Topanga Bomber Jim Fitzpatrick commissioned skateboard artist Sean Cliver to design this reunion T-shirt in 1991. It was printed at Powell-Peralta Skateboards.

Fitzpatrick asked Cliver to modify the logo of the Santa Cruz Surfers Union by adding a bomb in place of a surfboard.

The reunion was organized by Bomber Larry O'Brien at a baseball game at Angel Stadium, Anaheim, because his brother was a first baseman. About 20-30 Bombers attended.

The Topanga Bombers Surf Club formed in the winter of 1962-63. That summer, they threw a fundraising party to raise money for their club sweatshirts, one of which is now in the Smithsonian.
