I have no idea why I'm finding this throwback ad from December 1969 so funny. The position maybe? The look on his face? Anyhow, this is obviously an ad showing the 'flexibility' of a wetsuit from the era. There's not alot of info on it in terms of how thick the neoprene is but nonetheless, it's pretty impressive. I'd attempt this in my 2 piece 7mm suit but A) I don't think it would flex that much and B) I don't want to spend the next several weeks trying to un-pretzel myself. Anyone who wants to submit a picture of themselves attempting this maneuver in their 2 piece 7mm suit will have their name and picture on the website for all to see for decades to come.
