The Bear as he was known around the beaches of Cronulla was a bit of a hometown hero. Rob was one of the founding members of Cronulla Point Boardriders and was a regular fixture in the lineup every pumping swell. In 1994 to the shock of friends theĀ ever bubbly and popular Bear took his own life. The very next day the swell pumped. The photo below was from a Surfing Life story dedicated to Bear. Rip.
