Town & Country Surf Designs Perler

When I was a tween on the California coast in the mid eighties, there were very few articles of clothing that I loved more than my  T&C Surf Designs shirts and board shorts. The clothes were stupid expensive compared to the stuff you could get at K-Mart, but I begged to be dressed like the other cool kids at school. I wore them until they were way too tight.

The NES game Town & Country Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage wasn’t the best skateboarding game ever, but it was on a very short list of games that included “extreme” sports. Skate or Die was the only other one, and it was equally as bad.

Pictured above are Joe Cool, Thrilla Gorilla, and Tiki Man in action. I’m starting to put colored borders on almost anything I make anymore, and I particularly like the neon borders to give these a little extra 80’s flair.

      I played so much of that arcade game back in the day that I had pinky blisters from the joystick. I could beat it on a quarter every time. =)
