On September 15th, 2013 the Redondo Beach community, friends, and the Body Glove family will celebrate the life of Bob Meistrell with a paddle-out ceremony held at Redondo Beach pier. The remembrance will begin at 9am with a reception hosted by the Meistrell family from 11am-3pm at the Seaside Lagoon, a long time favorite spot of Bob’s.
Bob Meistrell and his twin brother Bill, are the founders of Body Glove International, one of very few family owned surf/dive brands in the world. As young boys, Bill and Bob taught themselves how to swim in a Missouri Pond. Just a over a decade later, a wetsuit brand was born.
