Banksy ’83

Posted: July 11, 2011 at 9:44 am

Before Occy, Greeny and Dog made their charge at the World Tour, Jim Banks almost single handed had been flying the flag as Cronulla’s main pro rider in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Jim was a regular  Top 16  performer as well as a respected shaper before he got burnt out with the contest grind and hit the travel road pioneering new surf breaks around the world. This photo was taken around ’83 at Pipeline.
