Sunday, November 18, 1956, Greg Noll and members of the US surf lifesaving team where in Australia to compete in the Melbourne Olympic Games, arriving in Sydney they were first taken to Cronulla for a wave.

With them they brought the first balsa wood Malibus and when they paddled out at The Point, Cronulla instantly became the birth place of modern surfing in Australia. Pic Brian Keane and American Tom Zahn enjoying the moment.
