Bryon Bay line up shot 1977. It was good for a week and not too crowded.

Redhead surfer Mick picked up a classic 1974 Warren Cornish collectors item shaped by Michael Peterson. Michael signed the board and even posed for a photo with it. MP was one of Australia’s best surfers for several years from 1974 but in those days surfers didn’t get paid much to surf, so most good surfers survived making boards. MP worked for many manufacturers and had his own shop making his own unique shapes perfect for surfing barrells.

The lack of an official dignitary didn’t deter the Redhead Surf Club at the Touch Footy winner’s presentation 1977. PJ poses as the Lady Mayoress and presents the trophy to Redhead’s Col Murray. Then a few beers were had.
