Here is what I guess would be a 1983 video, probably just before or after the 1983 Rip Curl Wave Classic in Torquay. The sails appear 1983. I recognise in the video the Gaastra Powerhead Wave sails with Rainbow used by others (a 1983 issue) and it is definitely pre 1984. It is noted Fraser Black is using a Bombora rope universal provided to him possibly by Mark Paul. Good shots of Diamond Head. Notice Fraser is not using a harness.

Would be good to see this again on the big screen, was the first windsurfing movie I ever saw as a teen. It may of had a Diamond Head section along with riding The Door, McTavish's Stingray looking board & Greenoughs spoon board with stainless fin.

Yes I would like to see Blown Away again. Maybe send an email to Paul Witzig and ask him at: gallery@witzig.com.au. He is a great filmmaker. This is the trailer of the Hot Generation a great film which I have on DVD.
