Peter Brittain featured in a centre spread on knee-boarding in Surfing magazine, February 1979.

“Before the body-board revolution, knee-boarders were slotting in at the Island. Peter Brittain was fearless on big days at the Island and on my trips down the South Coast with him; he took on reefs and ledges with precision and strength. Pete shaped a number of my early knee-boards. He was a gifted but humble guy who left us way too early.” – Graeme Cole
