'The origins of this show, and the catalogue that shares its name, was a story idea I put together for the US publication 'The Surfer’s Journal'… but bit by bit, it expanded and grew and took on a life of its own.
The pictures are from a significant period in Australian surfing (and of significant surfers). Many of them have never been seen before. Some were run in 'Surf International' in the late 1960s, and 'Tracks' in the very early ’70s. A very few I’d printed, but then left forgotten in my prints’ file. Others I’d simply never noticed on my not-very-good proof sheets. There were also nearly 100 rolls of negs that I’d never proofed at all. There weren’t many treasures there, but there were some.
These are probably more personal photographs than I’ve exhibited before. Ted Spencer said that “only a friend” could have taken the shot of George Greenough in his room in 1977. The characters in this collection of pictures were the friends I surfed and traveled with, and most remain my friends today.'
