Corduroy to the Horizon

BRUCE BROWN: (Surf Documentarian, Pioneer of Surf Film): M Nii and his wife were great people. I have a vivid memory of him hopping around on one leg with one crutch while taking measurements. I ordered a Suit (not trunks) from M Nii. He made it out of corduroy!!  It could stand up by itself!! He put in shoulder pads that looked like I had a 2×4 in there. I think I might have got married in it. If you sat down in it, it would try and spring you back to your feet.
