Rare early surfing clips 1960s Newquay

Here's a couple of rare short films of surfing at Fistral beach in the 60s; the first one is a great little film of a British championships circa 65 or 66 with some classic footage of Rod Sumpter, very stylish and the eventual winner of the comp, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONuXXCii2co&feature=related .
The second film is early 60s and shows Chris Jones ,Roger Mansfield and their mates as groms surfing at Fistral, and apparently the first surfing comp there, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRgjIe-qc20
