Total arse of a shot with Daffy in maximum efficiency mode while I was on the back of the MI quad bike.



Pete and the Schurminator with big red and the Melbourne CBD in the background. Upwind.



Downwind Pete and the Sherminator having a drag race. The big red ship can create a big wind bend at the end of the track, sometimes good.


Daffy just after MI went through 50 knots.

Been posted before – I arrived with my mates early in the morning – it was bloody freezing. Only one other car parked high on the sand, walked down the track and saw kato looking like an alien come out of nowhere from the bottom of the course.



He then did this awesome laydown gybe in front of us then trucked off into the horizon. I don’t think he stopped all day.

It looks almost identical to Elliott Heads near Bundaberg.
When is the best time to do a pilgrimage to Sandy Point or Merimbula/Pambula ?

No wonder you can hold such big sails and go fast! I wish we had somewhere around here like that!

Not a favourite but all I got from around 1981-82. Hyuck hyuck, some very early vintage hi-po gear and me learning to use it only after 1 season of learning on a wally size board. I was 21/22 so could handle the step learning curve. It's my first shortboard circa '81 (ex-Scotty O'Connor's by Hot Buttered) and way too short for me. I'm 5" or more taller than Scotty and equally heavier so that gives you an idea I bought the wrong size! But heck it taught me how to waterstart quickly coz I couldn't uphaul it. Sail rigged high just like everyone else in the day, it made sense back then. Obscured is the first gen high chest harness adapted from sailboats and you wore it high like a bra, killer single pin stainless hook, near drowned me twice! Also needed to see a chiro 2 years later because of it.

Hey kids come over here and look at your dad, look no gut!




Even then I thought John's sail was baggy, good ole dacron, stretches but holds together and lasts a long time. Pic circa '81/'82




Don was way advanced and had style, he could duck gybe with that 6'7" frame of his! Pic circa '81/'82

Day one.
5th November 2006 (thanks digital images).



Two months later.





Powered up at Shearwater last year (thanks Haircut):




Three years later family finally came to the beach with me again. I don't know why it took so long either

They loved it. Currumbin was almost our second home last Summer.

Warming up in Currumbin Lagoon:



I'm out there somewhere
