Angus Young and Surfing in the 1970s Redhead Beach

The recent AC/DC Tour reminded me of a photo my wife Sandy has of her
younger sister Vanda and Angus Young taken at the Hard Rock Cafe around
1974. Both very young and VERY Rock ‘ N Roll. Angus and Vanda 1974 Hard Rock Cafe Melbourne

I did’nt take the next two surfing photos – When Redhead’s Graham
Harkin developed his first roll of film from his new underwater camera I
got a copy of some of these because they were great photos. Taken
around 1977 at Birdie Beach.

One of the good things happening in surfing is the variety of
surfing equipment people are now making – old ideas, mixed with the new.
You would’nt look out of place walking down the beach now with this
