The Pringles

Posted: October 29, 2010 at 1:48 pm

Brian Pringle started surfing on a mal in the 60’s and moved the family into Bando rd where they still remain today. When sons Glenn and Shane were coming up the ranks Mr P would paddle out the back to The Point on his red wave ski and take the set waves. Using his paddle as a deterent to any drop-ins he would take control of the inside wave position while Glenn and Shane who were too small to steal any waves from the hungry Point pack could take off while Brian acted like their personal bouncer so they could get bigger wave experience. Now thats a devoted dad.  Photo left Brian on his eggbeater and young Glenn smacking the lip on his single fin McCoy Lazer Zap.   Circa mid 80’s photo Chris Stroh
