The New Wave of Snorkel and Dive Gear Now Available at Sport Chalet

Body Glove proudly announces the release of the all-new, top-of-the-line Dive N’ Surf snorkel and dive line, now available in stores at Sports Chalet and other select sportings and high-end retailers around the globe.

The innovative product line continues the rich tradition of quality and performance set forth by Body Glove in 1953, with a commitment to timeless designs for sea ready products made to withstand unpredictable conditions and rapidly challenging ocean elements. Body Glove is the choice of professional surfers & dive adventurers, like Holly Beck and Cheyne Magnusson – who have made it their mission to share their love of the ocean above and below the surf.

“We are thrilled to share our new Dive N’ Surf line with water adventurers around the world,” said Body Glove President Russ Lesser. “We want to inspire men and women to get out and explore the oceans – this top-quality line will definitely bring them closer to the action and be the inspiration for unforgettable adventures.”

The Dive N’ Surf line includes patented, top-of-the-line dive masks (perfect for depths of up to 100 feet), fins and snorkels. The line includes:

• Professional Dive Set – Comes complete with Equity Mask with tempered glass lenses, silicone facial skirt, oversized lenses, and easy adjusting mask straps; Alert Whistle Snorkel with 100% submersible dry top, silicone mouthpiece, notifying whistle for safety, and snorkel keeper; Reach Fin with Power Core Design, easy adjusting heal straps, and High Efficiency Channel System for maximum power and minimized fatigue. The set is packaged in a high-quality, stylish gear bag with drain hole for the draining of excess water, shoulder and top strap for easy carrying and hanging.
• Enfold Combo – There has never been a mask/snorkel combo better for travel or storage on boats! The Enfold Mask comes with tempered glass lenses, ultra-soft silicone facial skirt, easy to adjust straps, and folds in half for easy storage. The Enfold Snorkel is made of silicone, rolls up for easy storage and includes a lower purge valve for easy clearing of excess water.
• Marianas Mask – One of the most revolutionary masks on the market today, the Marianas Mask comes equipped with silicone facial skirt, nose purge for easy clearing of water, Wide Nose Technology that increases the field of view exponentially, beveled glass windows that allow for viewing in every direction, and Quick Adjust Straps for easy strap adjustments and a tight seal.

The Dive N’ Surf by Body Glove line is set to expand in 2010. For more information on the line and Body Glove, please visit:

Bob Meistrell Named Man of the Year!!!!

Body Glove’s co-founder, Bob Meistrell, named Man of the Year by Redondo Beach!

June 15, 2009 – Bob Meistrell, one of Body Glove’s founders, was honored Friday night with Redondo Beach’s highest tribute, Man of the Year. The awards ceremony was hosted at The Portofino Hotel in the King Harbor Marina and the Body Glove family was on hand to congratulate our fearless leader.

Bob was saluted for his volunteer work and time given to the city of Redondo Beach, particularly this last year. He spearheaded an effort to recover and rebuild the bronze bust of George Freeth that was stolen off the Redondo Beach pier in August 2008.

“It is truly an honor to be named Man of the Year,” said Bob Meistrell “That bust of George Freeth was a piece of Redondo Beach history, there was no way I could just let something like that happen to our city.”

After retiring from the day-to-day operations of Body Glove International a few years ago, Bob decided to spend more time on his philanthropic endeavors. You can find him at many charity events all over the South Bay, often offering his Body Glove yacht, the Disappearance, as an auction item. He does have a soft spot for the coastal areas. Over the years he has instituted a system to help keep the King Harbor Marina trash free, he sat on the board of the Catalina Conservancy for many years, was on the Steering Committee of the SeaLab, sat on the Finance Committee of the Cabrillo Aquarium and was on the board of the Switzer Learning Foundation.
