Richard Herbert alias Dick Bent was one of Cronullas true characters. A longtime Point and Island regular Herbie was always pulling in and coming out with his crazy grin on his face. Herbie was a shaper with G&S and Emerald and produced Huzza Wuzza boards at one time in his career. Richard once had a double page shot in Tracks back in the late 70’s in an article titled Veruna. He later gained a cult like following in The Shire with his band Death by Bunta and then Dick Bent and The Bentnicks. A while back Herbie died from natural causes, his wild lifestyle finnaly caught up to him. This is shot 1 from a 6 shot sequence of Richard lining up and pulling into the hellpit at The Point    photo Stroh
