In 1976, when he first screened his movie Just Cruising – An Australian Surf Movie Alastair Waddell had been surfing around Cronulla for almost 20 years and closely involved in the local boardriding club scene. He shot the affectionate flick using a camera bought from Jack Eden and a lengthy lens that used to belong to Bob Evans, two of surfing’s big hitters of the 60s. His aim was to promote Australian surfing overseas and give Cronulla surfers a rare opportunity to shine on the big screen. Article and pic courtessy Surf City.

Kevin Hall

This pic of Kevin Hall at Elouera just turned up out of the blue from an old mate recently. His little sister had it and must have kept it all these years.
On the Holden is his 1st custom shape from Michael Peterson a 6′ 6″ Rounded Square, everyone else down here where still on Pintails. Mick shaped it like the one seen in M.O.T.E. “the cutback” but his had a 14″ fin and fuller nose.
The lost but found pic blew Kevin out , to finally see all these years later the old Holden and the MP sitting there. 348961303_1287789078814541_5482522730410993950_n
