Redhead copped some big swell on January 17th 2011, a follow on from the storms and flooding in Queensland.

Crow and Grommets Redhead Beach 1986 Newcastle Surf Expo Board Shoot. A collection of Newcastle’s vintage boards were put on display for Surf Fest. I am holding my 1972 Space Gypsy Keel Fin.
Original Redhead Surfers Association Club Badge from 1966. As most of us were Surf Club members we got the run of the Redhead surf club for our meetings and presentation nights, of which I remember Danny H hanging off the rafters after a few too many beers. The Club came 2nd to Merewether in the Newcastle Teams contest.
After 2 years the Redhead Surfers Association disbanded, but reformed a short time later as Little Beach Beach Board Club. Again the club came second to Merewether in the Newcastle Teams contest which got us into the 1970 NSW State Teams contest in the B division, held at Crescent Heads in which Redhead came Third.
