Ed Conlon was a stylish goofyfooter from Cronulla that surfed for the ST George Surfing Association. By the early 70’s ST George was the top club and boasted a team of Cronulla’s hottest surfers. Names like Frank Latta, Reno, Ross Longbottom, Andy Britton, Glasso and Danny Childs were just some of the standouts. As a junior Eddie began to shine and quickly earned a reputation at State and amateur levels. Ed eventually moved to the Gold Coast while his sister Patty Conlon dated MP.
