Pete Smith

Easily one if not the hottest surfer/shaper to come out of Cronulla during the late 70’s. The naturally talented goofyfoot along with Ross Marshall, Craig Naylor and Jim Banks brought a new competitive edge to the Southside beaches. This shot of Smithy was taken at Blackrock in 81. Pete was riding his Emerald shaped single fin pintail with red rails. A true waste of talent when he was taken far too young. R.I.P
