Got onto this sight a while ago and find bird's recollections very interesting . As him , his brothers and particularly Mark Skinner were of great inspiration to me through the early 70's at Big Rock until I become aware of our own Aussie icons such as Crawford , Artis , Horton etc. Charging heavy rock and reef ledges was where what set them apart and set in my mind what I aspired to replicate to this day .
I am sure we all relate to the meaningful words. Having said that, part of the close culture we enjoy is due to it not being mainsteam. How about some day trips down south shortly to get some waves under our belts for the Worlds?
