2021. Brian Jackson spent much of his time each year at Crescent Head. Each morning, before sunrise he would walk out the the point and watch the waves, giving advice and having conversation with passing surfers. When he saw this image he described it as his “pathway to paradise”. RIP. Tim Vanderlaan photo.
