In looking to refurb and update the museum one of the themes we will be exploring is People and Place. There is certainly a LOT locally to celebrate, a pretty epic place, steeped in surfing history, with a raft of interesting characters . . . I love this photo taken by Peter Ginnane a Bells in 1971. Check out the range of craft on the roof of the Holden, and all that neoprene stacked in the boot. Not sure who was piloting the EH but it’s got South Australian plates. That is Ian Walding’s Kombi with the bug beside it, all parked in the lower car park (before all the amazing organic rehabilitation that has taken place there) Only one head in the clean morning line up at Bells . . . looks like there are a few more waves on the way?
Evocative eh? Grab a single lined Long John, a 6’10” diamond tail, and hit it!
