In 1983 I was in 11th grade and I loved the long sleeve Lightining Bolt surfer shirts. For some reason I cannot find anything about this brand on the web?

I was brought to this site while looking for an old Lighting Bolt clutch purse, I"ve looked on e-bay and all over the net. These brands were such a part of my life while growing up in FL. I had blue lightning Bolt flip flops! Some of this still has to be around.

Yay! I'm not the only person looking for Lightning Bolt clothing. My whole wardrobe consisted of Lightning Bolt, OP nad Hang Ten. Oh yeah and a pair of whit Nike with the powder blue swoosh. I miss my two-tone pants and shorts...I still have a Lightning Bolt keychain from 1982. Wish I still had the silver necklace! Can't find anything on the company anywhere on the net, shame. I see that Walmart has brought OP back to life.

I still have one of my Lighting Bolt longsleeves with the bolts on the arms. I must have got it when I was 12 in about 83. It's too small for me, but fits my girlfriend well. She always gets comments when she wears it. Funny cause she was born in 83.

I still have my lightning bolt clutch purse from the early 80's. I have held on to that thing for a loooooooong time. I'm looking for the old vintage rainbow flip flops.

My name is Eduardo. I am from Brazil. In the 80'years I was young and I used to use T-Shirt like Ocean Pacific (OP), Lightning Bolt and also Town & Country. Designers was super, but I can't find this brand anymore and would be appreciate if it could back again.

God, I can still remember wearing my Lightning Bolt Beach Patrol shirt at Boy Scout camp. It was white, and the design was the ubiquitous hot pink and electric blue of the eighties, with black outlines.
