John Veage first came to my attention as a photographer working as Sarges apprentice  He eventually went on to become the Leaders main photographer and through his love of surfing has kept the local rag full of surf related pics and articles now for several decades. Veagy is also a lifetime member of CBC and has been the backbone of the club since day one. Photo below …..still keen as a grommet he’s on it every morning at his beloved Alley. Photo Chris Stroh.

Cronulla Boardriders Club Comp

Posted: May 12, 2013 at 1:23 pm

The CBC club was formed in 1978  by G&S and since day one they still regularly hold their contests at The Alley unless there was no waves and were forced to move elsewhere. Mark Pringle was the Opens champion that year.The club at times was full of stars and was the most successful local club against other areas in Surf League and team events. Photo BWN

Nugget is best remembered for being the King of The Alley rip bowl lefts. However when the swell was up it was common to see Nugget at Southies or The Point tearing it up as well. This day taken early 90’s goofy footers Nugget , Murph and Jezza took over the Point lineup and went to town. Photo Chris Stroh 

 

Damien Hodge

Around ’90 Damien Hodge was the new kid on the block showing plenty of potential in the amateur ranks. Being taken under the wing of Dog and Jason Marsh, Hodgey was one of Cronulla Boardriders Clubs most promising stars and looked like a possible candidate to follow a similar pro career path to that of Greeny , Occy and Dog. In ’95 when this pic was taken by Peter Simons, Hodgey was riding Stuart Patterson shaped Force 9 boards.

Wayne Roach is one of the evergreens of Cronulla surfing. Roachy has been around that long he’s part of the furniture, even though he works in Torquay these days he’s still a Cronulla boy through to the core. Roachy has many tales to tell like this snippet from a recent email. ” I went to Gisbourne 1973 Mum gave me the air fair for my 21st, got a lot of the spots on I was doing a lot of surfing with Mick Peterson at the time he shaped me a filthy stick at Southern Comfort 4the trip to NZ. The board was ahead of its time I glassed it so light the Kiwi’s went burko over it, still got the template”.  This pic Roachy at Jan Juc 2006.

 

 

Andy King

This photo of Andy was taken at Suckrock probably late 90’s or early 2000. Andy was just hitting his peak and was all over the mags and contests riding for SMP clothing. A decade and some earlier Andy just a skinny grommet at the time bought his first surfboard ( a battered old Waterforce) off Craig Stroh. The pair would hook up again in the coming years as it was Craig who took the pic of Kingy below and many others. Such a natural cruiser, loving life in the barrel.
