Sad News for Surfing & Enviro World
We are sad to report that Bill Meistrell, co-inventor of the Body Glove wetsuit with his twin brother Bob, passed away yesterday. Bill was an avid lover of surfing, diving and all things ocean related. Bill, their company Dive n Surf, and Body Glove have been extremely generous donators to environmental causes -- including countless contributions to Surfrider Foundation.
We want to share our deepest regrets with the Meistrell family – and to let them know that we remember many a good time with Bill. Bill might have left us in some ways, but his spirit will live in the community who loves the ocean forever.
