“The sea, once it casts its spell,
holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
Sailing, surfing and snorkeling are just a few of the ocean activities people enjoy in Redondo Beach.
Boating and sailing is another popular activity. One of the boats you will see quite often in Redondo Beach waters is the Body Glove boat.
Body Glove is a surf, skateboard and water sports brand started in Redondo Beach. Founded in 1953 by twin brothers Bill and Bob Meistrell, the brothers are credited for inventing the first practical wetsuit in the early 1950s in the back of their Redondo Beach surf shop, Dive N’ Surf.
From a small back yard of a surf shop, two passionate divers went on to become Redondo’s most prominent business, Body Glove.
