This video has been slowly circulating through the interwebs (curious about what the interwebs are, check out the CRB for furth explanations.) Anywho, one of the first things that jumps out you in this video is the voice of Ed McMahon and he’s announcing a TV segment about barefooting.
He makes a big deal about the skiers at Cypress Gardens trying to stay dry, but the despite hat odd bit of announcing, the story features some classic footage of some old school barefooting. No barefoot suits, no padded shorts, nothing but a swim trunks and a yellowish life vest. The vid features Jerry Atkinson barefooting in less than most people would consider doing it today. What made me laugh is the footage of the “tumble turn”. It was anything but clean, kinda looked like me trying one, but the difference waws he made it back around. Me, not so much.
Enjoy the footing, the steller music and the voice of Ed McMahon.
