A 30 year old shot from a 1987 winter session at Merewether in Newcastle

A 30 year old shot from a 1987 winter session at Merewether in Newcastle. Mark O’Neill took the photo & in his text when he posted the photo recently he mentioned that there were only 4 people in the water. I can remember so many sessions during the 80’s that were totally uncrowded, usually only a few in the water taking turns for wave’s. A little different to the surfing experience now, especially if the surf is good. The board I’m riding is displayed on the wall at Slimes Surf Shop in Newcastle. It’s a 6’4″ Swallow tail twin fin with a big “Sting” wing. I’m guessing it’s been 25 + years since it’s been in the water, might be time to get it off the wall & take it for a surf.
