Gary Green  has the prestige of having  his name in print along with the elite of surfing’s hierarchy in Matt Warshaws Encyclopedia of Surfing. It states Greeny was born in 1963 and raised in a $30.00 a week flat in western Sydney before moving to Newport at age 14.Three years later he moved to Cronulla.  He joined the Pro Tour in ’84. Midway through the 1987 tour year when he was ranked in 6th position he bailed on contest surfing and became one of the first non competitive pros who was paid to travel instead. This shot Greeny was taken on the South Coast mid 80’s photo Stroh
