Description

1966 Weber Team Jacket & Shorts *Provenance*

Here's an extremely rare complete set, with provenance, of both the Dewey Weber team jacket and shorts from the Weber Surf Team. This mint, museum-worthy set was originally owned by one of the most significant of the Weber team members and surf film producer, Jamie Budge.

Below are excerpts from Jamie's web site, The Living Curl:

"...Jamie Budge surfed the same breaks as Dewey Weber; jockeying for waves and bumping rails with him and his team members at local surf spots from Malibu to South Bay. But it wasn't until early 1966 that Dewey asked Jamie to join him for the first (and only) ever, "Weber and Budge Surfing Tour" of the east coast.
By then, Jamie was a contest winning surfer who had filmed the much acclaimed surf movie, The Living Curl

Before the team of 8 surfers left California for the east coast, Laguna Swimwear presented each of the members with a dozen outfits of casual trunks, shorts, T shirts, jackets and, of course, several sets of Weber Team Trunks & Jackets.
Not all of these fit perfectly the designated team members. One set of Weber Team Trunks & Jacket was too small for Jamie Budge. So they traveled the entire tour from Corpus Christi, Texas along the gulf coast to Miami Beach, Florida and up the east coast to York Beach, Maine: stashed in the back of Jamie's van.
And after the tour, they spent the next 42 years in a drawer in Jamie's closet, next to The Living Curl. They were never worn."

A Weber Team jacket, complete with the matching shorts in mint condition with significant provenance still intact, is simply unheard of.

This amazing and important 1966 Weber Surfboards Team set will be featured in the full color hardback coffee table book, Vintage Surfboards II, available later this year.

Pre-auction estimate: $2,500-$3,000. No Reserve
