Surfing Culture in Newcastle. This article below (click the link) was published I think in a Newcastle Uni magazine sometime in the late 70’s. I kept a copy as its quite funnny, sorry I don’t know who Duckboy is, the guy who wrote it, a non Novacastrian of course:
Arial view of Redhead 1976 from an old slide – Lots of changes in 40 years – no Industrial Estate , no north side housing estate, caravan park in progress, and the second creek before it got dried up.

Mark sent me this photo of this most beautiful colourful fish. This one and a few others were caught from Swansea Channel and released. I identified it as a Yellow-Green Wrasse from the book Australian Sea Fishes and in it states killing such a rare and beautiful animal is hardly excusable. They go through many colour phases when growing up and the males end up a more greeny-blue colour and the females are yellow.
Storm cloud Redhead Beach 1/5/2016 it passed by with only a few lightning flashes and a bit of rain.
