With Mark Warren @markwarrensurfs at Burleigh Heads in 1982

With Mark Warren @markwarrensurfs at Burleigh Heads in 1982. The photo was taken near the shower block during the Stubbies Classic event. I’d just come out of the water after a heat. The Red shorts were “Stubbies” & were worn for judging identification. The event was man on man & you competed in either Red or Yellow shots. You were not allowed to wear your own board shorts. It was a condition of entry that you competed in the Sponsors product. My board is a 6’2″ long Twin Fin. I shaped, glassed, sanded, gloss coated & polished it. I also sprayed the Star Bolt on the bottom. It was a long time ago but I’ve never forgotten that it took me ages to tape up the Star Bolt & spray it. In the background you can see the Hessian fence which was erected around the headland during the event. You had to pay to go in & watch the contest with the local surf club members manning the entry points. The proceeds went to the Burleigh Beach surf lifesaving club.
