Gerry Manion earned a rep as a heavy charger in the mid 70’s, this shot taken in the 90’s at Shark Island proves Popout never lost any of his early go for it decades later photo Stroh.

In the 70’s Gerry Popout Manion worked his way into the lineup at The Point as a young grub picking off the odd closeout set that  none of the regulars wanted to being the the main man to watch when the waves were maxing in the space of several winters. Still going strong today. This shot late 70’s by Chris Stroh

Gerry Popout Manion was a lucky grom who had the rare distinction to be allowed to sit out the back with all the Point heavies and regulars. The only trouble was he could only take the waves that no one wanted which usually meant a solid pounding. After a while of taking anything that came his way his go for it nature impressed the older guys and he ended up becoming one of the boys and taking the cream of the sets. Photo Stroh Circa 80’s.

Gerry “Popout”Manion is the everready of Cronulla surfing as he just keeps going. In the 70’s he put Cronulla Point, Shark Island and himself on the surfing map. In the 80’s he continued to charge on the biggest days and his image pulling in to some crazy pits earned admirers from coast to coast . This shot was taken early 90’s and now its 2012, Popout is still out there pulling in as he was spotted surfing The Point on the last big swell. Photo Stroh.
