Sand Dunes ’83

Posted: April 20, 2017 at 7:54 pm

July 1983   This picture, taken with a super long telephoto lens, shows the rapid demise of the Wanda sand hills in the early eighties. Once the sandminers began water dredging, the sand just caved into the lagoons and was pumped out.  The sandhills had no chance.    Tim Vanderlaan Photo

Shot this pic at sunrise in 1980, I think it may be Ross Bullard pulling in at Shark Island on a mutant slab but Im not 100% sure. From memory the only other surfer out was Gary Hughes.Photo Chris Stroh.
