Looking back, the cold didn’t seem to stave off the die-hard Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School ocean dwellers.
We’ve seen them in full Polar Bear Club regalia. Now, in our Retro Pic of the (George) Day, here they are again at shoreline of Sea Bright Beach ready for some surfing fun circa 1978.
Donning down and ski jackets, this crew was always ready to catch a wave — of fun in one way or another.
Know them? Of course, you do.
Thanks again to George Day for providing this original photo from the archives of the RFH yearbook.
We welcome any Retro Pic of the Day contributions from further retro eras or more recent times. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos and proper credit. Thanks and enjoy!
