Were did you learn to surf?
Behind Bellambi rock pools and out at the bomby. Before they put in that government housing mess. Then I graduated to places like Woonona Beach Sandon Point and Peggies at Bulli. There were a lot of tough guys and good surfers around and you had to really extent yourself to get a wave.

In the 19 hundreds I have A Bell from the 1982 Velcro Bells beach Easter classic and a string of near misses as the Aussie champ. Finally got to be an Aussie Champ in 2006 at Yallingup WA on a longboard. I have travelled and competed in Hawaii America Indonisia and all over Australia
