Mike McGill Powell advert from 1991

Mike McGill Powell advert from 1991The issue closes with an advert which seems like an enigma now. Why Powell on the back page, not Santa Cruz? The back page was almost always a Shiner advert, but they normally used it for Santa Cruz, so I wonder what was going on here. And what really was the message Powell were trying to get across with this shot of McGill slaloming on a normal pool board? It seems right in parts and wrong in parts. I have a feeling I ought to know what they were saying, but then I realise I have no idea.
For me this issue fizzles out.
Where to next?
Merry Christmas, for now…
