Mark and Jack

Posted: January 28, 2019 at 11:23 am

Mark was out surfing one day in 1993 as a big swell came in from the South. It had been raining for days and on that afternoon the sun came out.

Mark didn’t know it at the time but Jack Eden took a walk to the point that afternoon, one of the only times he used his camera since retiring.

A couple of months later one of Mark’s friends, Doug Robson was walking along the Mall – Jack had a display of some of his photos and Doug noticed from the corner of his eye, this photo of his friend Mark, or MR as his Cronulla Point Board Rider friends call him. The photo had been labelled ‘Mark Richardson’. Doug alerted Jack to the incorrect name, in that it is Mark Rogers to which Jack changed the name. Doug rang Mark to tell him the photo was there, hence to say, Mark raced down and bought it.

So there you have it, a Jack Eden, signed photograph, of my husband Mark 😊 from Anna
