Authentic Yater sticker design which can be seen in the one of the most iconic scenes in the classic movie Apocalypse Now, when the soldiers go out surfing, amongst the bombings and chaos of battle, they ride custom Kilgore surfboards with this exact logo on the surfboards.
”If I say it’s safe to surf this beach, Captain, then it’s safe to surf this beach!”
During the iconic beach napalm scene, Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore (Robert Duvall) instructed members of his squadron to either surf or fight. Surfers rode the six-foot swell on custom Kilgore surfboards with this logo, amidst bombings and the chaos of battle. Captain Benjamin L. Willard (Martin Sheen) grabbed one of these boards lying against a helicopter before knocking over a fellow soldier and boarding a boat.
